I also scratched another long planned project off my list - I love, love, love cathedral window quilts, but thought that getting those smooth curves might be challenging, so I started off with one of these from the Moda Bake Shop site.
The major project last week was making the shark for my son's pirate quilt. I still had to make the sea, and then enlarge my original test shark. All went smoothly until I had a little lesson in values (I'm sure you've been noticing all the blog talk about value quilts!). See what I mean?
Lastly, (I told you I actually got some stuff done this weekend!) I saw a gorgeous table runner with four Japanese x and + blocks by Liz of Dandelion Daydreams, and I have wanted to make that block for a long time so I figured I would give it a shot.
Well, it felt great to accomplish some stuff this week. The thirteen loads of laundry doesn't count, right? Thanks so much for visiting, it is great to have people to share with!
Linking up with WIP Wednesday, and the Slow Blogger link up.
