I like it. I think it's cute. And it makes me so happy to make these things knowing they're going to a good cause. Another top I pieced yesterday was a little number I decided to make (with an excellent suggestion from Melissa) from Mark Lipinski's Winter's Grace line. The idea came from a cover of American Patchwork & Quilting. I didn't actually look at the pattern in the magazine, I looked at the picture on the cover and did it my own way. Here's what I came up with:
Again, simple... yet totally striking. The black really sets it off. I ♥ it!
Two Sundays ago, when I pieced these quilt tops, I also pieced this guy:
It is made from Blank Quilting's Inspiration fabric for the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition. It is very simple, basic and very plain. I planned it that way. I wanted plenty of open space to incorporate some awesome, spectacular quilting. When it is finished there will be trapunto, color trapunto (assuming I can find the right color) and lots of fancy and fun quilting on it.
I also, one day or another (I really can't remember anymore) pieced this cute little quilt out of Moda's Fruit Cake and a little Figgy Pudding leftover from last year. I don't have any pictures of the table runner. :(
Don't ask me when I'll get all of this crap quilted. I'd love to do it all... yesterday... but the fact remains that there are just too many other things to do that are more "important". Like, you know... the stuff I get paid for and am on deadlines for. Yeah, that stuff! I reeeeaaaally want to plow through my waiting list to get to the six quilts I have for one person. They're all SO stinkin' cute and I can't wait to quilt them (among others). But at least I can have a little fun of my own every now and then. =]
