It is going to get loop the loops and butterflies in light orange thread. Shouldn't take too long to get this one done! I also want to get the quilt I am hand-quilting bound. I decided I want to put a scalloped border on, so I need to figure that out. It's been a while and I'm afraid I've forgotten how to figure out the math for the scallops.
And I saw this picture on Facebook
and realized it would be perfect to use my overflowing green stash on! I have been thinking of making a triangle quilt in greens, so this one is perfect. I think I could figure this out on my own, but the magazine looks like it will have lots of great patterns, so I may have to add it to my collection when I see it! Is there anything as fun as deciding on a new quilting project? I just love the feeling of knowing I want to make something special and new!
And I am going to try to finish piecing the border for my Grand Illusion Mystery. I need to get on the hunt for the perfect backing for it, too. I'm thinking of quilting it with a medium loft poly batting. I like my cotton quilts, but a nice fluffy quilt can be a fun change of pace sometimes. I probably won't be quilting it for a while, so I have time to think about it.
What are you sewing this weekend? Will you watch the superbowl or sew? (I plan to do my binding while I watch the game!)
