However, although my machine hasn't been out, I've been beetling away at the handpiecing that I started last month. What I am showing is the net effect of about 30 days of using the Quilt Patis diamonds. I've got a trapezoid that I keep adding to star by star. I don't have a good sense of how to shape it. Eventually it will get to a size that means it's time to stop. At some point before that, I have to shape it into a generally square or rectangular shape. Let's hope that I have an epiphany along the way about how to accomplish that. In the meantime, the trapezoid gets bigger and bigger!
A couple of other quick notes before I have to get back to work:
First, my blogiversary was September 18! It's a shame that I was too busy to organize a celebration that coincided with the actual date, but there will be a belated birthday party, with at least a couple of loot bags.
Second, I want to thank my LQS for picking me for the $100 grand prize from their fall open house draw!!! Yay! Any suggestions for what I should get?
Third, my next quilting endeavour involves kaleidoscope blocks. I'm going to make a serious study of them, and I've equipped myself with two different rulers, both of which allege they make life much simpler. I'm in favour! So stay tuned.
Finally, does anyone have any experience with Quiltsmart or Inklingo products? I would love to hear your opinion.
