Watching Katie Pasquini Masopust on The Quilt Show
last week she had a great idea for hanging strips.
This was ideal for keeping some of my strips
tidy instead of in a jumble in the bin.
So, rings hanging either on a door, the wall or a rail,
safety pins holding strips together, could be in colour order, or not,
depending what they're being used for, threaded
onto the rings. Cut off then length you need as you along, give them
a shake at the end of the day - no creases or wandering threads!
Looking through my KF books I flagged quilts which I'd like
to make, however I only worked on four books
and you can see the amount of markers!!
As I have another 16 books to go through I think a culling
session will be in order - no way will I be making all
But I have made a start on a new quilt.
I don't think I posted my Tula Pink All Stars collection when
they arrived a few weeks ago, some of them shown below
and I should have posted them in three or four photos
to truly show them off to their best.
Plus One is a pattern in the newest book from
Tula Pink and Angela Walters, which just happens to be
on my shelf.
A quilter from Aussie on Instagram @goneaussiequilting had made this
pattern up with the All Stars range, I loved it and along with a few
other quilters asked if she would mind if we made the
very same quilt using her colour setting, she gave us the
Above is the top border and then the first row - only stuck
on the flannel wall - is made up of squares and pluses and will be 60" across.
I'll have a better photo next time, the colours are
more vibrant than they're showing here.
This is a project which makes me feel like doing nothing else but
hiding in my little studio all day with these luscious fabrics, not
actually possible because of the arthritis in my hands but I'm
using a timer to work in short bursts.
I think the bright colour fans will enjoy watching this all come
together row by row.
I should have more to show in my next post
but as John and I are celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversay
tomorrow, 25th May, it will be next week before much gets done around here.
We have a family lunch Sunday, we're looking forward to that and probably
a day of rest will be needed the next day!
I'm off now to do another 30 minutes on the quilt,
hope you all enjoy the rest of the week.
