Shakespeare in the Park
I am very excited to be finished my “Shakespeare in the Park“! It’s a pattern by Judy Martin in her book “The Creative Pattern Book.” This pattern was frustrating. I found the directions often did not make sense to me. And, of course, I made it bigger, so then I had to figure out how many extra blocks to make. Adding the extra border was easy to do! In the end, I’m glad I persevered. I did a scrappy binding. My husband was not too sure about it, but when it was finished, he said that it was the perfect binding! 🙂 I love this quilt – now that it is finished!
Pink Snail’s Trail
A flimsy is completed. Ready for sandwiching and quilting. A few posts ago, I showed 2 lay-outs for a snail’s trail (or monkey wrench) quilt. Most everyone commented that I should do this layout and I’m glad I did! I think it will be fun to quilt this one!
Now that I’ve posted the picture, I realize that I still need to add a border.
