It doesn't snow much in Raleigh. But the month of February brought us a couple of snow storms and cold temps. Perfect for completing some of those unfinished projects..
I have been working on a quilt for my favorite nephew Tyler, his is turning the big "18" at the end of the month. He loves surfing so I used batiks that had a water feel. I had a hard time deciding what to machine quilt on it, I settled for a water meander, and straight lines on the inner border. I will wait to see what inspires me for the outer border.
Happy 2010! I am going to try to be a better blogger this year.
I made my husband Craig a quilt for Christmas. It was hard to find time to work on it without him seeing it. But I surprised him.
I finally finished my Civil War quilt, one that I started 7 or 8 years ago.
It was a "buck-a- block" from Archangel Fabrics in Raleigh (before they closed).
It was made using "thangles", which made it so easy to get perfect half square triangles.
Thangles are paper templates that come in various sizes, which are directly sewn on and torn away.
