My first new start for 2012 will be under the guidelines of the quilterie 2012 challenge.
It is a two colour quilt. Solid red and white actually.
When I discussed it with Sharon I thought it was called Churn Dash, but because the block is in a 2:1:2 rather than 2:2:2 format. It is actually the Hole in the Barn Door pattern.
I don't normally cut all the fabric prior to piecing. With a two colour quilt, rather than my usual scrap quilts, I was able to cut out everything.
After my recent experience with Bonnie Hunter and her mystery quilt, I am going to use the Easy Angle ruler and chain piece. All a new quilting experience for me.
My English cousin has been staying with me for the past few weeks and she made me a pair of socks
The colour isn't showing well on my screen, but there is a lime green stripe between various shades of grey. They are just lovely. Being the competitive person I am I pulled out a sleeveless vest I knitted in Fair Isle in 1981
If you have really, really good eyesight, you may be able to see that I have been able to add a name to my photos. Look over on the bottom left on the above picture. I have been enviously reading blogs with lovely printing on the uploaded photos and finally I have worked out how to do it. Things can only improve from here.
Being able to add my label to the photos makes up for all the weird little things that have been occurring to my blog recently. Sorry if I haven't answered your comments. I do appreciate them, but they don't all go to my email since I started moderating them.
