Yes, I know I haven't finished *all* the projects I had on my plate at the beginning of the week, but that doesn't stop me from
plotting planning more!
The Patchwork of the Crosses block has been a very popular one across the blogasphere of late, and I've been watching how different folks put them together. Gracious, but that is a stunning block! So it only goes to figure that eventually, I'd have to try at least one! (This is NOT my block--but one that definitely caught my eye and interest!)
It took some back and forth questioning with Teresa, over at A Quilt and a Prayer for me to be straight on what I needed. She's completed some simply breath-taking POTCs (like the one above), so she was a natural go-to gal for me!
So far, all I've got is a my overall shape . . . I'm trying to decide if I want to print it out on cardstock and make my templates.
Or if I want to just go ahead and order some. I'm thinking I'll make one homemade template set, decide if I want to make more, and then if I do, go ahead and purchase them. I will also then decide if I want to order one of these special little mirrors . . .
To make all my own gorgeous blocks! These are really nifty little things. There's a tutorial for their use HERE. The next step is figuring out what fabrics I want to put to use for this. Fabric auditioning? Yes please! Linking up to HeLP for Hexi-aholics over at sarah did it!
Before I head out for the weekend (we have a HUGE Father-Son campout this week, so I'm headed out to a ladies' bonfire on the other side of town *grin*), I wanted to share our newest little friend with y'all!
Remember all those eggs that got laid and buried over the summer? We saw our first hatchling! Isn't it too cute? Not much bigger than an acorn. Those yams tower over him! We saw about 15-20 eggs being laid ... no telling how many eensy-weensy turtles will see!
