It's been a couple of weeks since I checked in here, so I guess I better blow the cobwebs off.
Not this one, though. Do you see it? I spotted it glinting in the sun while I was having a glass of iced tea on the deck this afternoon. Now if only a spiderweb could catch and hold onto these halcyon days of summer before they flitter away on translucent wings.
I've been cranking out the kennel quilts. Actually, cranking is maybe not the right word. It connotes a kind of drudgery, and making these little quilts is anything but. I'm quite enjoying it.
I keep thinking the stack of scrubs should be dwindling down to nothing. But wait, there's more!
Still keeping it simple with either HSTs or squares, but I've been playing a little more with the quilting.
I did elongated loopy-loops on the solid chevrons and a smaller meander in the lighter parts on kennel quilt #10, above.
Quilt #11 had a shamrock print in one of the scrubs, which inspired some shamrock shaped quilting.
The backing continues the theme, a thrift store fabric find from a couple years ago that's been sitting on the shelf waiting for its time to shine. Sometime other than the one day a year in March when I usually think of it, that is.
I've got kennel quilt #12, below, in the works. I had some fun with this one.
After I'd sliced up the purple scrub top into 5-inch squares, I noticed I had various iterations of Bambi among the pieces. So I arranged them to look like s/he's scampering across the quilt top.
Yep, I'm easily entertained!
There's sure to be more quilty entertainment over at the linky party, Can I Get a Whoop-Whoop!
