One of my quilting weaknesses is choosing color so I am using Bonnie’s suggested pallet for the "Grand Illusion" mystery. I shopped my stash as much as I could. I did not have anything in teal so I had to really shop. I had trouble there also but I found one that I like. It is more aqua.
I am starting slow and think these first units will be great leader/ender units as I work on other projects.
I’m linking up with Bonnie Hunter’s Grand Illusion link-up party. Check out what others are doing.
For years I have had sets of cutters for 2 sizes of gingerbread houses. Saturday I was able to cut pieces for both sizes from one patch of dough. I hope my granddaughters will work on one and the other will be good to decorate at the guild holiday party.
At the GCQ holiday party Tuesday, Dec. 9 we can bring a handmade pincushion to exchange. Sat. I made this Cathedral Window type pincushion. For our Nov. program Sharon Golden shared her collection of pincushions and Sandra shared several links for patterns. I used directions at http://diaryofaquiltmaven.blogspot.com/2013/01/faux-cathedral-windows-pincushion.html
Sandra sold small bags of crushed walnut shells for stuffing. I added a few scrap pieces of cotton batting to help fill.
