Just Spinning Around!

Hello Everyone,

While on retreat, I had the opportunity to finish up my Black and White Challenge! Well, just the top is done. I have to make the back and then quilt it, mere technicalities.

Anyway, here it is...

I really love the splash of orange in this. The design is really a variation of the Kaleidoscope block, but by adding extra pieces it makes it spin! You can find the pattern HERE. Best of all the entire quilt was cut on my AccuQuilt Studio Cutter. Well, with the exception of the borders. It took about 15 minutes to cut. Not bad.

Until Next Time...

Long weekend

As we didn't get away again on holiday, due to a number of reasons, I've got some holidays to use up from work before the end of the year - so this weekend is a lovely long weekend. I'm off until Thursday.

Over these few days and after completing some of those craft distracting issues (housework), I'm hoping to get a few hours each day up in my craft room - it will be chilly up there but hopefully some frantic sewing will keep me warm.

The UFO's on my 'hit' list will be:-

  1. The Threave challenge project
  2. The B&W quilt challenge top

Other than the Threave project I'll hopefully be able to share photos with you within a day or two.

Number "2"

This Black/White/Red "Fractured Star" is my second and final installment in this wonderful challenge. Each block measures 8 1/2" with a 2" red border and 3" piano key border. I had a blast choosing colors, looking at everyobody's quilts and reading about what each person blogged about.
