What’s Happening?

…to answer the question,

now a full time babysitter for my 4-month old grandson;

(pooped from my birthday party)

working on a center block for a Round Robin;

(I have another border to add, then I’m done!

This is my first Round Robin and, I’ve only been quilting for a year!)

and, I’m currently working on a hexagon quilt!

(96 strips sewn together by twos; making 48 pairs of strips.  Whew…done!

Now, I am starting to cut these into 60 degree, 4.5″  triangles!

This pattern is from a McCall’s Quilting magazine, dated 2008)

Now, I have a question for you.  This fabric is a find; 3 yds for $6 and vintage 70s stretchy nylon!

Photo does not do the colours justice in this fabric.  The orange and yellow is SO very vibrant!

Should I make a cute vintage halter and pants outfit for my 7 year-old using this fabric?

Or, is it too much for me (at my age)?  If not, how about these patterns with that fabric for me?

What do you think?  Really!

  1. Eeek! Decisions, decisions! Your grandson is adorable but my question to you IS – how do you find time to do all your quilting (amazing work by the way) and be a full time carer for your grandson?

    I’m going to call you Super Woman from now on! There’s nothing else for it. 🙂

    As for what to do with the fabric. I think you deserve a treat so use the fabric to make something lovely for yourself. I bet you’ll end up making something cute for your 7 year old though.

    Love and hugs whatever you decide! 🙂 oxoxo
