Yesterday I promised pictures. . . And then Linda released the Inklingo Kite Collection that I have been hoping for ever since I first laid eyes on the exquisite Rose Star Block. I am SOO excited about this shape! Then, I realized that by leaving off a few kites, I could make it fit in with my pieced hexagon quilt. So I accomplished very little of the unpacking and laundry that was on yesterday’s to do list. But I did print enough kites for a block-
This is going to be so cool!! I can’t wait to do a whole quilt of these. They’re not for the faint of heart though, each block has a whopping 72 kites. And Linda included lots of layouts in the collection to accomodate straight grain on different edges, fussy cutting, and striped fabric. The 18″ collection has kites that make a 3″ hexagon (and is shown above). What I wouldn’t give for more hours in a day. . ..
Here are some of my finds from our vacation. Before we left, I went to Quilt Among Friends in search of backing for the Tumbling Snowflakes. Not only did they have a perfect batik, but they also recommended a shimmery glide thread that’s going to look amazing for the quilting. That’s more thread than I’ve ever bought in one fell swoop before.
Now I’m off to finish something. Any something. Even if it’s just clearing the breakfast dishes. I officially have WAY too many projects started, and it’s making me a little bit batty. In a good way, of course!
