On Saturday night I sat down and finally put the graph paper idea in the Pineapple Plaid file (yes each quilt/idea has a file made as soon as it is conceived. It is truly the only way I can keep a handle on things) into EQ7 and made the quilt digitally.
Not sure what happened with the brown sashing…I thought I was coloring it black so please over look that.
Yesterday morning I woke up and just felt the need to “unplug” from the world and just sew…sew…sew.
And so I did.
And now I am more than halfway thru all the blocks…actually darn near close to 3/4’s so of course I had to jump tracks and start on the sashing. You know how it is when you get fired up about a quilt again.
I did some further tweaking of my design on the sashing, coloring them a bit differently. I like the ends ending in black vs white as shown in the digital image above. So I went in this morning and tweaked the EQ file. I also think I am going to go with a robin’s egg blue for the cornerstones and outer border. But that is still up in the air. Yes I am thinking a solid border. This quilt might need it with so much going on in the center. Again…still up in the air. But here is the new digital quilt ….so far.
I am back in the studio for a full day of sewing today.
Tonight I start to bake the Christmas Cookies. I have seven different recipes to get thru. It will be one or two cookie batches daily for the week.
Going to go draw and post the Day 10 winners on the blog in a few minutes.
Also tonight I will put up a post with all the outstanding winners from the “10 days of Swag Giveaway”. My hope is to get everyone’s snail mail addy by Tuesday night for one more trip to the post office before the holidays!
Enjoy your day,
