I forced myself to finish it because I really wanted to work on the Wee Spin quilt. It is similar to the Merry Go Round quilt pattern by American Jane, but it only has two rounds instead of three. I have to say, I got the Equilateral Triangle Rulers from American Jane, but I'm not real thrilled with them. I'd like for there to be some lines on them so that I could line up the strips to cut easier. While it's worked out okay, I just feel like it's not as exact as I'd like for it to be. Here's a bit of what I have so far.
The colors are different from the Fresh Squeezed, but I really love them. I got a couple more Jelly Rolls of American Jane Fabric - the Look and Learn fabric ones. I'm going to try the Merry Go Round quilt pattern with those. At least I think I am. We'll see how easy the Wee Spin goes together!
And let's remember, it is summer. I have one child taking summer school (to make next year easier), and two children at home. Making me feel guilty. Because we're not doing anything. Geez. So, my girls had each done (mostly on their own) flannel quilt tops. I got one of the tops (spray) basted and started quilting it. I'll get that done, and then get the other one basted. My youngest will (hopefully) want to quilt that one on her own. Well, she'll probably start, and then I'll "help" finish it. So I can stop feeling quite so guilty, right?
