Wednesday WOW – August 24

Sheesh – hot weather is back!  I finished a couple of projects last week and seems like I just want to sit in front of a fan now!  Fortunately, that kind of feeling doesn’t last too long.

Today, I started cutting fabric for the next quilt.


I wanted to work with pastels on this one.  Definitely a change of pace for me and I had to dig pretty deep into the stash! 


I also needed my calculator to figure how many strips to cut.  Yes, I designed it in Electric Quilt.  Yes, I changed my mind after printing out the cutting plan! 

I am going to try a Disappearing Nine Patch.  When browsing through my collection of blocks and quilts, I found three  separate directions for DNP.  That tells me I really want to make that block!

Oh!  Those pretty flags up there?  That’s one of the projects I finished.  It’s a swap – I will mail mine out tomorrow, and there are two more coming to me.  Once they have all arrived, I’ll give you the full lowdown.

Liz, I love your blog. I don't know where I got the addy from but I have had it for ages & just tried it.
Also love the dogs. Pugs are my faverite. I have been making pennants for a swap too. Hugs Rayna in NZ
