This week I figured that I needed to buckle down and decide what I was going to do for the Quilt U Be Mine first round....and then tackle it.
I've spent a lot of time in QuiltPro trying to get inspiration and organize what I'm going to do, and also on the web. Funny how lots of ideas come to you when you least expect it, and sometimes not so much when you're searching!
I stumbled upon Bee in My Bonnet, (www.beeinmybonnetco.blogspot.com) and she's hosting a Row Along! Seems super-simple and she's great at tutorials. And inspiration struck me! I saw her Row 3, the Chubby Chevrons or Lozenges, and I figured out I could join a bunch and arrange the directions of the chevrons, and have a Valentine's Day theme. And at the perfect size for the required border widths of the Quilt U Be Mine!
I spent yesterday and today afternoon cutting squares.
I am surprised again, just how small 4" finished borders can be!
So here are my stacks of lozenges, ready to arrange and sew together. That's it for tonight; I'm turning in!
BTW, now that I'm looking at them, I don't think that the pink with green egg shapes print really goes with the rest. What do you think?
