Rain Rain Go Away
A steady day of rain allowed the westies to catch up on napping
and it was a good day for me to get a quilt idea out of my head.
What was I think?
Have you ever had an idea stuck in your head and you
just had to get it out? Well, this quilt idea using Batiks has
been swimming in my head and it was finally time to get it out.
My friend Leslie asked me several months ago to make her a quilt.
Since they 'winter' in Naples, Florida a tropical theme seemed
like the perfect quilt for her.
Directions for making the "R"
What was I thinking when I got it stuck in my head to spell
out the name of Leslie's westies on the quilt back using Moda's
Spell It With Fabric guidelines.
"R" is for Rocky ... westie #1
The "R" in Murphy ... westie #2
Opie ... westie #3 ... the rescue
It took approximately 10 hours to make all the letters and
I kept asking myself ... what was I thinking?
The sashing will be added between the blocks tomorrow
then I need to play with the final layout for the back.
So ... while the westies had a super-restful day
I had a super-busy day working with fabric.
