And, I fell down the rabbit hole just like Alice in Wonderland on another adventure. First of all I had seen this set of patterns at the OKC quilt show, and wanted to look at the samples at Oklahoma Quiltworks , but I knew I wanted to start doing this. I can take my time with it and use up some of my stash. The blocks are 9". This is block 1.
Here are some samples that some of the employees at the quilt store are doing. They meet once a week early in the morning and work on them. The difference in the fabric being used sure gives a different look to them.
And, of course I saw this fabric and it called my name. This is Kashmir II by Sentimental Studios. Somebody hasn't seen this yet, but I have a feeling she is going to just love it. I bought a Jelly Roll and yardage. The stripe on the bottom is what I am going to use for the border. The red is for the block backgrounds, teal is for the inner border and the beige is for the setting triangles. This is the book the pattern I am going to use is in. You can buy it online here .
This is the pattern I am going to use. It is called Raspberry Jelly and makes a quilt 74" x 85" which will just have to be big enough.
Nicole had mentioned on her blog about the ruler she uses for squaring up quarter square triangles. I had ordered these rulers last week before her post, and they came in today. Great minds run in the same track, huh. I also added one from Judy Hopkins called Stash Master. I have wanted these for sometime and found out when I was doing the challenge quilt that I really would benefit from them. The ScrapMaster is usful if you are cutting hsts or qsts out of scraps. And every one needs one of these I think, especially since I have read the information that came with it. All three will be a wonderful addition to my evergrowing ruler collection. :>) They are available here .
I also met the nicest lady at the quilt store today. Her name is Kathy and she told me she recognized me and she read my blog. I asked her how she knew who I was, and she said from my hair, ROFLOL!!!! See, it does pay to have purple in your hair! :>)
And last, but not least, NEW ENGLAND WON THEIR FIRST PLAYOFF GAME AGAINST THE JAGUARS!!!!! All is right with the world in Oklahoma!!!!!!
