I am so pleased I had a bright sunny photo yesterday, because today is the exact opposite. Cold, cloudy and drizzly with rain. The good thing for us is that we are gradually filling those reservoirs again, and boy, do we need it after so many years of drought. It has been a very good Winter in that respect.
Now if you need a bit of cheering up on a miserable day, take a visit to Joan at MooseStash Quilting and read this post. I was joking with Joan about the extras I would like in a car for quilters and this is what she came up with. Enjoy a laugh!
I have been doing lots of chain piecing with little squares and rectangles using a jelly roll called The Caroler by Mary Engelbreit.
I am using a pattern called Country Garden Maze from an early copy of the Irish Quilting and Craft Magazine.
I think the pieces multiply in the dark when I am not looking. There seem to be so many! And this is just the first block.
I think it is one of those quilts that seems a little fiddly because it uses a lot of small pieces, but hopefully the end result is worth it.
Elaine, at Muddling Through, is working on another scrappy quilt that involves a lot of cutting and chain piecing too. Good luck, Elaine.
