Melanie (our daughter) was over last night and she is working on a Halloween stitchery – awfully cute! Not done yet as you can see – the pattern is by Satsuma Street located here. (not affiliated, just thought some of your stitchers might like to see where the pattern was from) It sure will be cute when it is done.
I got one more of the hexie flowers done for Handful of Scraps and I have moved the dark one along with it to the top of the quilt and I might work from the top down now? Not sure just an idea. I am linking to Tweety Loves Quilting today.
This area of The Final Frontier was worked on Wednesday night
And this part on Thursday night and where I picked up last night after Melanie went home.
I don’t know how many of you use your kindle or Ipad for Quilting books from Amazon but I found a nice one that I loaded onto to my Ipad – if you get the paperback it is just under $23 but if you get it for your kindle but load it to your Ipad for viewing it is $9.99. Most quilting books I have found like this have a link in the book to tell you where to go on the computer to print out the patterns and this one is no different – you go to the link and you can print your pattern from it. The photos on the Ipad are nice and clear and so is the print. You take your Ipad when you travel and you have access to your quilting books to look through and read. I do not have a lot like this but I have found them to be much more in my price range. Again no affiliation – just a great idea. This book has some great small quilts to use wool applique or applique of your choice – some of the patterns are just right to frame and hang on the wall – about 20 x 20 inches. I know books on kindle or Ipad is not for everyone but when you can print the pattern out from it – well it works for me! EDITED: 8:28AM — I had not printed any of the patterns out to see how well they did so this morning I printed out one of the applique patterns in the book – it printed out 1/8 inch smaller than the scale and I could not get it to change to 100% — this doesn’t bother me as it is applique and all the pieces would be printed 1/8th inch smaller than they are supposed to be. A person could cut pieces out a tad larger or just leave as it is printed making for a slightly smaller pattern. There are no pieces to print to cut for the piecing of blocks for that it says cut a square such and such size – cut in half to make triangles or whatever so that would not give you any trouble at all.
