I got my Criss Cross Applesauce quilt top together yesterday so that means I need something to sew. I could pull another UFO…I could start a new project…to do? to do?
Lazy Sunday Bonnie’s new mystery that is featured in Quiltmaker magazine won out…
I was slow to start because I want to work on UFOs…AND I am not at all excited about the colors. I am just not a “bright” girl! I dug through my Civil War reproductions and decided I am going to make this quilt mine. I found some greens…I know my pinks are going to be reds instead…my blues are going to be teal..purples are staying purple and oranges are moving to cheddars. It’s not a far stretch different but enough different that it will work with my fabrics.
I can’t just work on one project so I rather than leave a UFO in the wake, I am championing on and doing something with these blocks from Criss Cross Applesauce that were a mistake.
I have almost fifty of them so that’s enough to do something with. It might be a baby quilt with red x’s. Someone suggested it not be a baby quilt with red crosses…but they won’t look like red crosses. They look more like x’s to me.
While that is happening in the sewing room I am loading a quilt on the quilting machine. It’s one I can actually show but that will have to wait until later today or tomorrow….
