Not a very good quilting weekend. Again I didn't sew a stitch but did spend several hours in the sewing room doing quilty stuff and a while designing quilts on EQ5 to use with some of my stash so I'm gonna at least count it as my 1 hour a day.
These are the fabrics I'm sending my sister for the Fons And Porter Contest we're doing. It's kinda a boring mix with not much pattern in the fabrics but with 3" blocks a bold pattern would have been hard to work with. I mostly picked the colors out of the Laurel Birch Angel Cats which will be used in the borders (and alternate blocks if I decide to go with them. It was a gift a few years ago from a very special friend and I've been looking for just the right use for it. There's way more than 12 pieces and some are similar in shade but I had trouble paring them down so Susan can just pick and choose the ones she wants to work with. The background is a Kona black. Sorry, Susan, it's going to be a bit hard to hand-piece as it's a bit thicker and tighter woven than most quilting cottons. But it's the only black I had enough of on hand and I can't buy anything else until Sept. 1st. :-)
