The Sun Came out Today!

I have had a relatively lazy day today, but hurrah! the sun came out and I got a picture of my new quilt! So here it is in all it's glory~

Isn't this a pretty one?

I finished up my challenge quilt for my local Etsy team - OCEAN (Oregon Coast Etsy Artist Network) We were challenged to come up with a fashion themed item. I had a whole different idea until I came upon this paper pieced shoe pattern this weekend. I had a great time trying to choose four different shoes to feature. So many fabrics, but not all of them look good as shoes, you know! I actually pieced the blocks last night, and quilted and bound it this morning. It really cam out nice, and I think I will use the block to make a quilted journal cover later this week.

I missed going to my OCEAN team meeting today because we are switching our satellite TV provider. We got a DVR and are having a good time figuring out the new technology. It was fun being able to rewind as we were watching our show tonight - So You Think You Can Dance. I found a couple of quilting shows to add to my list, so we'll see if I like them. So a good day and very restful, tomorrow will be busy as I work all day at the quilt shop. Probably not much quilting for me, but who knows what will inspire me as I spend the day in the midst of all the fabric!

These colour work so well together. I've used the Moda Martinique jelly roll and some of the ones for the heart are a bit pale. I think it is best to choose fabrics to fit the design rather than just get hooked on using ONE jelly roll. I have cut the strips for the heart and then sewn them back together again, before cutting out the 12" triangles. I had to use the selvege - but I will loose that when I cut out the 11.5" square - I hope I'm not being too ambitious for my 1st quilt!
