This is Bonnie's picture of her quilt, just imagine cheddar where there are shirtings? Does it work? Other suggestions? I cannot prep any more for this until I figure out my colors! EEK! I am also thinking I might just do this in a wallhanging size for over my bed since I don't have it in mind for anyone. We shall see.
In other prepping news (seriously, no sewing has been happening on my Martha!) I spent hours again today prepping for the Quilting on the Rim mystery quilt weekend that Becky and I are going to the end of February. We signed up for this months ago before I knew about the Bonnie stuff and I know Becky and I will have a great time (and she cannot go to the Bonnie stuff this year, but next year when she is here...). So the gal running the mystery sent us the prep and it is pretty extensive. I was happy to do hst's with the papers she sent, but I was puzzled as to why she has us making the hst's a little big and then trimming each and every one of them down. This defeats the purpose of using the papers if you ask me. I gave Becky a head's up but she was already planning on switching out the papers for the right size so eliminate the trimming. She is a smart cookie, I still have more to trim....
This picture is from today and is about the 5th day I have spent some time with these hst's.
However, I need to actually sew, maybe a wild and goosey block or something before the day is done! I am off work tomorrow so nice to have an extra day and I think I will be finding something to sew instead of prepping...I need more excitement haha!
