My Blog List
Since the Make it Right Challenge, I've been working so hard to write Mod GeoCruiser into a pattern. (I don't know if the above photo will be the cover or not, I was just playing with it.) And I have tons of new respect, in addition to the respect I had already, (Beth Helfter) for people who write patterns for a living! I can't even count the hours it took, just to get it all written down and the diagrams drawn. At times, I wondered what I'd gotten myself into!
My son even started to wonder if I'd abandoned him. Near the end, he was sticking to me like glue, making it even harder to get anything done, and telling me to stop working on the pattern. ;) But, after I'd printed out a couple of pages to proofread, he finally jumped on board, making his own instructions. :D I kind of want to save this piece of paper forever. haha
I plan to make another Mod GeoC, to test out my pattern, and it's also off to two pattern testers, to see how it fares. I was working on it for several hours a day.. but since it's off to be tested now, I had the best carefree weekend! :D So, someday soon it will be finished and available. Squeal! Who would've thought!!
I've never done anything like this before.. so it's all new to me. Fingers crossed!
Also, Christa from Christa Quilts has been very encouraging. Thanks for your support Christa! She just got Angela Walters' complete Textures line into her online shop, including the panel. And not only does she have yardage but she also has a FQ set of these nine FQs. They are so soft, and I love the colors.
Here's a link to her shop where you can find these yummy prints, and she's even blogging about it today.. you can read her blog post here. (and she may or may not have included a pic of my quilt--thanks Christa!!)
Aside from this and the two little baby quilts, not much else has been happening here, so I'm completely behind on the x&+ Bee, and am looking forward to making some of those blocks this week and getting caught up on that. They are fun blocks to make. Hope you have a great week, and it's not too hot where you are. (We just came off of a week of above 105F temps and now that it's in the 90's again, it almost feels downright springy compared to last week! Ugh!) Unless you're in the southern Hemi in which case, and it feels weird to say this when it's been so hot here, I hope you're staying warm. ;)
Happy Monday! :D
Congrats on finishing up writing the pattern, Kelli! Glad to hear you got to take the weekend off. I love that you shared the picture where your son helped with the diagrams. That is sew sweet! Who knows? Maybe you have a future quilt designer there!
