oh no flying geese! My nemesis!  I watched Bonnie's video and I'm going to give it a go.  I'm headed to Joann's tomorrow to purchase one of the rulers...I have the easy angle ruler...just never used it. I still have 25 more 4-patches to do from last week and I'm determined to keep up.  

This weekend is going to be rough...I'm trying to decorate for Christmas...tonight I took out all my christmas quilts! What fun to look at them again.  My favorite is my tree skirt...its my first log cabin  You know the feeling when something gives you such joy to look at it...this does it for me.  I hope the picture does it justice....

Easy Street Fabric

These are the fabrics I chose for Easy Street.  Most are batiks because I just love the vibrant colors!
On top are the 4 patches...that I'm still not done with...I think I'm up to 140 something. ::pant::  Tomorrow is another day!  And can't wait til Friday's next clue!!!

In the Beginning

In the beginning there was fabric, thread, tools and patterns...lots of patterns. I love to quilt and for the past four years I've been learning the ropes...or should I say "threads".   Yesterday my husband threatened me that he was going to hang a towel in the bathroom and call it art!  You're kidding me right!? He said that he's been waiting for me to decorate this one blank wall for years now and since I haven't he wants to hang a towel...A TOWEL!   Well, that got my juices flowing...I went into my Quilt Cave and started looking at my stash.  
I knew that I wanted something or butterflies...a sunset, lots of color.  So I started picking colors for my sun...I wanted the feel of  radiating and gradating...I will add pictures later today...I'm fairly new to this blog thing and getting it all together is going to be a challenge for me.
I picked shades of green for a palm tree and blues for the sky. Today I will start to add "Wonderunder" and cut my pieces. And maybe I'll try to make a video of some of it!
Towel! I don't think so!!
