Sew ...

So ... I actually ventured into the sewing room the other day. Keep in mind that I haven't sewn on anything but the kitchen curtains for several months. Keep in mind that this is weird.

I am going to make this easy strip quilt (see picture #1) from this pattern (picture #2) from my good friend Renee (here.)

As usual ... I'm changing things around a little. Instead of hearts, I will applique cherries. I've said it before and I'll say it again ... I get a tic if I try to follow a pattern exactly. Even though I think Renee's pattern is too cute for words.

And ... yeeeesssssss ... I'm aware that I'm doing the red/green thing again. With a little yellow thrown in for good measure.

And yes, I'm blogging about this to force me to get moving. I am pretty sure that all this decorating has fried the quilt side of my brain.

Ever happen to you?

I love that little book. I haven't made a thing from it but I love looking at it. Her booth was so cute, loved the primitive with the new fresh fabrics.. it really was inspiring.

A quilt for ME ! Wow, how very nice of you Mary! LOL. So another quilt I'll be coveting, drooling, dreaming and coveting again about! Pure torture putting all that cherry fabric on here for all the world to see. Oh wait, let me wipe the drool off my chin. ;o) Can't wait to see what you make! ooxx`jod

Can't wait to see your quilt . . . with a Mary twist! Thanks for the link too. Leaving today for Portland, OR in a few minutes and that is not before I have requested from the new administration 29 hours in each day! Seems like there must be something in that new guy for me - so far not so much! LOL
