I finished another item from my UFO list, as the time nears for the Museum Quilt Guild's show- a great incentive to get things done!
This is called "Patternista Tiles". I started it in the class with Paula Nadelstern last year, using her fabric from the line called called patternista.
As you know, I have been making her "Opulent Ornaments", and I may have mentioned I love sparkly things, right? So I decided to add some opulence to this quilt, in the form of nearly 1,000 swarovski crystals..
Unfortunately, the crystals just don't photograph well
You also can't see the fabulous quilting I did around the designs created in the blocks. But that's ok. It's not like it needed fancy quilting. :-)
I'm very pleased with this piece, and had such fun making it. The best pieces are fun to make, don't you think?
Voting this year- at least in the major election- is going to be a tough choice. Nobody seems happy with our choices. I know I'm not. So it comes down to one thing- who might work to make changes to help stop climate change. If you haven't decided, consider using this as your one issue. In the end nothing else really matters!
I am grateful for:
Sleeping in all snug and warm in my quilty cocoon.
It's cool enough to bake.
