What’s on my plate

After a long day of driving back and forth from Easter lunch on Sunday I got home and vegged out on the couch watching some movies and stuff while trimming away at my snowball block leftovers.

When all was said and done I ended up with 166 HST units! Two units did not “make the cut”, may they rest in pieces.

I played with a few layouts in EQ7 – still not sure what border I’m going to put on it. I tried two different things.

My digitizer fixed the issue that was causing thread to shred on the tight corners of my silhouette designs! I was happy to see I could get a complete stitch out without having my thread shred and break and so was she.  I got all my finalized designs today so I can start stitching them out on snowball blocks.

Also on deck is a dog agility ribbon quilt commission that I need to start (need to do a test stitch out of my new applique design) and then I’ll be going baby quilt crazy for a while.

Saturday I sat in at the “quilt it paint it” workshop given by Juanita Yeager.  I decided to not take the class since I had so much other stuff going on but I wanted to be there in case she needed anything.  It was a fun class to watch! I’m looking forward to seeing the finished quilts once everyone paints them.

I worked on making my Scrappy Trip Around the World Blocks for the swap that I’m hosting this month. I need 8 complete 12.5″ blocks and I got five finished before I left.  Last night I sewed up two more blocks and now I only have one left!


  1. I like both quilt borders but I like the second one the best! The border on it serves as a “picture frame” and accentuates the bright colors of the middle.
    The first quilt, the border seems busy next to the brightly colored portion of the quilt.
    I love your corgi quilts!

  2. Katie, I really dig that graded value border idea. I have been wanting to do that on a quilt for a while, but didn’t have the right fabrics. The next thing I buy yardage for will include a similar border. I love the shading.
