Happy St. Patrick's Day - and Happy National Quilting day!!
National Quilting Day ( although apparently it is only in Australia and the U.S. ) I spent the day at Quilt retreat - QBTB - Quilting by the Bay. I basted and machine quilted the Sock Monkey quilt. So I just have to sew on the binding and it is finished.
I started the Japanese wall hanging quilt a couple of weeks ago. I am doing it the Becky Goldsmith way - with the clear plastic overlay, and the needle turn applique. I took a class from Becky Goldsmith and she has really, really tiny stitches. Really tiny. I enjoy working on needle turn applique.
It looks a little crooked - not perfect like I would like. Maybe from a distance it won't look so bad. It is supposed to look like a stone path through the garden - and stones aren't perfectly formed and shaped anyway!
Just a reminder of what I am trying to complete. I posted the pattern a few weeks back.
I have not been feeling well this week - almost like a cold is coming but not quite there - very tired - so I haven't been up to much. I have yet to figure out the EQ6 - but I will. I did get an email back from Hancock's about the fat quarter that was sent that didn't belong. They said that the one particular fabric was on back order so instead of not sending the bundle out they just substituted another fabric. I kind of figured that! But they suggested I send the entire bundle back - they had a 30 day return policy. I don't want to do that - I was just hoping they would suggest they send the correct fat quarter when they get the fabric. I bet that fabric is pretty popular and hard to get right now. I haven't emailed them back yet. Now of course I will obsess about this for a while -LOL.
Well - it is late and I should go cut the binding for the sock monkey quilt. The Vancouver Canucks won tonight and that is a good thing.
