I've been working this week and don't have a current sewing related project to share, so I thought I would go back in time to May 2010 and share what was going on then. Above, you see one of my all time favorite photos of Ozzie. I can say that he is slightly less pesky now than he was then, but not much. My goodness that dog craves attention. He is still constantly in my face.
I had made the quilt above for Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company to take to Quilt Market in 2010. It is called Shortline and is one of two versions of the quilt available in the pattern. Fabrics used were Rouenneries from French General for Moda. The Chevron design is still very much au courant, and this pattern would be so lovely done in some of the bright modern prints available right now. If I were to make it again, I would be tempted to experiment with one of the new linen fabrics for the lighter background. Maybe a pale grey linen next to some brighter cottons for the zig zags.
This is the second version of the quilt, made with the one and half inch strips of a honey bun (or maybe two, I can't remember). The fabric collection was Happy Camper by American Jane for Moda. I had fun making both these quilts, and learned a lesson that going with smaller pieces truly does often give a wonderful effect.
This quilt has the most amazing quilting, done by Diane Tricka. Every white zig zag was quilting differently.
