{Post 1,401} Guess Who This Is?

Give up?  There is a dress-up contest tonight in my daughter's youth group.  That is not Johnny Depp.  That's my Rachel.  Gotcha.

{Post 1,400} Center of Leader/Ender Finished

Well, at least the blocks are all pieced.  I might add a border or so on this one.  Time will tell.  It will measure 36" square as is.

{Post 1,399} 24/36ths Finished!

Here is my I Spy leader/ender.  It will be 36" square when the center is finished.  I'm still stuck in the mindset that all quilts need borders.  We shall see with this one.  This has been fun to cut and piece. I need 12 more blocks to finish the center.  

This is one busy little quilt.

{Post 1,398} Journal Cover

I can't remember how it came up, but my son's girlfriend asked me to make her a journal cover out of denim and to add a little flat lace.  This looks very plain to me, but this is what I ended up with.  Goodbye jumper!

{Post 1,397} A Finish and A Start

Finished the center of the Charming Addition I Spy this AM.  I will be adding a border or two, but the center is finished.  It is 36" square.

Next up is a leader/ender project I started from strips of the above quilt that were left over.  This is how it starts, isn't it?  I saw the quilt below at a guild meeting I attended with a friend recently and loved it.  The one I saw was not in novelty prints.  I love the shadowing and brightness and darkness and everything in between.  As with all quilt beginnings, there is not a lot of variety in the fabrics...yet.  Wait until I get going!!

{Post 1,396} Replaced and Enlarged

I did take out the spool fabric block.  I replaced it with the red pizza fabric, then moved the spools over and down.  I added two more rows while I was at it.  My plans have drastically changed today, so I had a little more time for sewing, which is always a good thing.
