Working on many things........

When I was at the quilt shop for our QOV sew in I picked up another pattern similar to Waterfalls.  I started choosing pairs of batiks to use.  Then one of my readers sent me a photo of hers made out of Kaffe fabrics and now I want to make 2.  I could just make 2 small quilts with 6 blocks each and make the borders a little wider.  I'll have to think about it.
I'm still knitting dishcloths, 4 of them simultaneously.  (Does this surprise anyone?)  The diagonal ones are so easy and I can't wait to see how some of the colors of variegated and striped yarn look.  The tweed one is a doubleknit and I just do a few rows a day on it. The orange and white will have a heart in the center so there is a lot of counting stitches and concentrating on that one.
I have started the next book in the series of PI V.I. Warshawski.
And....I'm still working on the tutorial for the Grandmother's Dream and Boston Commons 2 for 1 method.  I'm making a couple small pieces for the tutorial since it is hard to photograph pieces and parts of large quilts.
I just finished sewing the quarters last night and haven't pressed any of this yet.  We had thunderstorms off and on all day yesterday and more predicted today.  We should be getting caught up on our moisture deficit in the soil soon.

Oh Wanda ~ I always thought you were the Energizer Bunny.... But now I know you are Wonder Women ! (*._,*) Martha Stewart would have a difficult time keeping up with you and we know how many people assist her.

Beautiful fabric layout for next project, knitting detailed dish cloths, Grandmothers Dream, and Boston Commons2... and reading a new book. You are indeed " Wandaful Wonder Woman"

I'm doing Stepping Stones and using a combination of Kaffe and batiks - they look great together!

Cathi said...

I can't wait to see those batiks in that design! That will be a spectacular quilt!

Sorry to hear about your problems with the rain Wanda, hope things improve soon. I too bought the Stepping Stones pattern a few months ago after seeing it made up in Kaffe Fasset fabrics

I saw the stepping stones at a quilt shop today and thought it looked like the paper piecing patterns you blogged about! I can't wait for the tutorial on the Boston Commons. I think my friend might like it too.
