Anyways, I have not done it in a long time, not like I did. But, I did find a designer and I LOVE!!! her work!! Below is a link to her alphabet:
Her name is Margret Sherry, and her characters are just so bloody cute that I want all her graphs!!! Even just to look at them!!! This is what I got up a did today - x-stich. Then realized I should share these pattern with you. See where the 'z' is? Once you are at the site, the way I got the next letter, or the one I wanted, I would just change the 'z', put in the letter I wanted and it would show up. Tried it today, and ......didn't work. But, it might for you, so here is the link to the alphabet. this takes you from 'z' back to the letter 'l'.
My daugher, who never talks about having kids, when she saw these letters, told me that I have to make these for her kids - both of them!! They each need thier own, and she is having 2 you know..... uh, no I didn't!! Good to know!!! lol!!
And, guess who has not done what she said she would??? I started to make "Boxed Star" blks from Bonnie Hunter's site. It's all because of seeing this quilt when I was checking out everyones stashbusting and thought it was great!!!!
So, now I'm making my own version!!! I was only going to see how the blk worked and now, I almost have all the blks for a quilt!!! here is where I am at with this
I finally had to put the blk on my design wall just to see how many more I needed. And it was more than I though!! I was working on this the day my blender blew up and my counting was so off I thought I only needed to make 4 small blks (which makes one 12" blk) uh, no, try 13 more blks!! When I started this, I thought - make a blue/pink combination. Well, ends up that I don't really have enough pinks to make it work, so then I just pulled from my 2 1/2" strips, and these are what I made. Beautiful?? not!!!! But, I like scrappy - and this fits that bill!! I also use 'scrappy' as a way to get my skills honed (???) and keep myself occupied without feeling any pressure. And it's just fun!! Another car quilt?? Or camping?? Better yet, it can be moved to my cabin when I finally find it (or build it!!). Curled up on the deck or patio with a comfy quilt wrapped around you in the evening..... ahhhhhhh, yes, count me in!!!!
Am not sure what the sashing will be, the fabric I thought I would use, not enough of it..... but I will probably use blue..... or manbe not!! I will figure it out when I get there. And, because Bonnie uses scraps (and basically so did I!!) I have no idea how much fabric I've used for my report on Sunday!! Oh well.
Have a great weekend and see you Sunday!!!
