I thought it looked much cuter than the drab black one so imagine my surprise when I used it for the first time… and HATED it. I guess there’s a reason why they make those things with a silky type polyester (or nylon?). It just feels better on your eyes. Needless to say, I’ll be ripping the elastic out and putting it back in the cheap one when I get a spare moment. It’s funny that I saved it on a whim. Now I know why.
I was also able to whip up a quick house block for the Montréal Modern Quilt Guild in their charity effort in response to the mosque shootings in Québec City, #QuiltsforQC. I was able to drop it off at QuiltCon.
The last block I'm going to share with you is the block I finished yesterday - my March block for Stash Bee, which I absolutely love! Ophélie, our queen from Paris, selected colors that I never would have put together myself, but she has converted me.
Mustard yellow with dark pink and dark teal? And olive green?? Who knew... but I can't wait to see her quilt come together.
The next big thing for me is the setup of my new long arm tomorrow! That's why there's been very little sewing since I've had to completely overhaul my entire sewing room. More on that very soon!
