|Ginger Joe loves projects!|
And...whether I am sewing or typing
he wants to be right in the middle!
I belong to the Spokane Modern Quilt Guild. We were given 6 fat eighths from the Jay McCarroll Habitat with the challenge to make a placemat using all 6 prints. The only other fabrics we could use were solids. I started to make squares but when I laid this all out on the table, I liked the diagonal aspect with this eclectic group of prints. As I looked at other member's finished products I realized that my abilities for machine quilting just are not there yet. However, I enjoyed the project and the process. As you can see, our kitten Ginger Joe liked it too.
I decided to take the opportunity to finish my project last night, sipping my favorite wine and joining others for the Friday Night Sew In over at Handmade By Heidi's blog where the projects are creative and inspiring. Heidi and her cousin Bobbi over at Crafty Vegas Mom take turns hosting this monthly event where UFO's are completed and new surges of creativity spread across blogland. It was fun to participate!
