So, to break that "famine" - I made a few cards this morning, pretty much exactly the same, except that the colours that I used changed from one card to the other. I found this idea on Pinterest (honestly, where did I find inspiration before Pinterest?), and decided to give it a try. It's a very easy, basic card, but I hope it has a big impact on someone's day. I have 3 friends that are going through assorted medical crises; I found that getting a card in the mail made my day when I was having health issues - so, hopefully this card will help each of them get through another day.
...and now for the quilt... I'm still trying to finish at least one "pre-started" project per month, and link it up to "A Lovely Year of Finishes". This month, I'm going to try to finish this whole quilt - piecing, quilting and binding:
The quilt pattern is "Charming Chevrons" from the "Christa Quilts" website. I bookmarked it a few months ago, when Christa offered it as a quilt-along, but, apart from cutting the triangles and stitching a few blocks for it then, I really haven't had time to work on it - until now. Christa's quilt was made using Kona Cotton's Classic palette, but I chose to use "Simply Color" by V. and Co. I LOVE the bright colours and the patterns are interesting - but it's a bit more difficult to put together than I was thinking it would be - I'm trying to not use the same colour in any row, but trying to keep the same pattern repeats to just one or two is a lot more challenging! So, in case you see me soon, and there's a large-ish bare spot on my head, you'll know what I've been working on! I'm off now to link up to the "Lovely Finishes" site - and then the sewing machine and I will hopefully have a very productive afternoon!
