What I’m Working On This Week
Hi there, Patchwork Times readers! (and good morning to old friends as well!)
I am a long time lurker on Patchwork Times, but today I decided to share my “design wall” as well.
Like my mom, I do not have a design wall. My new apartment does have a second bedroom so I have plenty of space for laying out quilts.
Like Mom and my sister Kelli, I am a Bonnie Hunter wannabe. I absolutely love that she encourages the use of scraps and recycled fabrics. I am making the Texas Braid quilt.
At this point I am wondering what I got myself into! The pieces are tiny!
The pattern is written for a king size quilt, and I cut it down to a queen. But as you can see, I have a long way to go.
I have a pretty nice setup:
Stitchin’ away to Madmen on Netflix.
Unfortunately I have only three episodes to finish the season. I will need to find a new series soon, because this quilt will need many more episodes than that!
This quilt will be a Christmas gift for Spencer’s mom. Years ago her mom gave me a box of her quilting fabric. Grandma Chapman has passed away in the past year so her fabric is even more special. Julie has had a rough year getting the estate in order and could really use a quilt-hug from her mom.
Be sure to head back to Patchwork Times for some inspiration!
