How is the weather where you are? It’s been VERY VERY Cold here. It got down to 16 or more below zero and we had a very bad snow storm.
Our Modern Guild meeting was canceled this week due to the weather. We will have our meeting next week and that’s when we get to see how our round robin looks. I was able to complete mine. The theme for this quilt is Garden time.
It took me awhile to decide what I wanted to do. I decided to add appliqued gardening tools.
I needed to go shopping today at the quilting store to purchase quilting needles for my sewing machine. Sooooo, while I was shopping of course I had to purchase fabric. Bizzy Lady and I have been looking at the Shot Cotton fabric for awhile. You maybe wondering what that is.
Shot cotton is special because the warp and weft yarns are 2 different colors woven together to create a special depth, a “shot” of color. When the edge of this fabric ravels, you can see a bright contrast to the body of the fabric. The quilt shop had Peppered Cotton (which is a line of shot cotton) and I purchased two different colors. I don’t know if you can see the two colors in the fabric from the pictures I took.
I have a lot of sewing to get done in the next couple of days. So I better get going.
Have a nice weekend everyone.
Until next week.
