That was quick

I finished the Roman Stripes quilt just before going out to dinner. Keith has another business dinner tonight so I'm on my own - again. I walked a couple blocks to Buca and a couple glasses of wine, a salad, and 2 slices of pizza later I'm very mellow!


I've also been working on the spiderweb top - just 3 seams and then I can add borders. I'm really having to make myself finish this top rather than putting it aside. This is the first time I've sashed the blocks individually - I don't know if it's because there are so few blocks or if the design wall makes it easier but I didn't have to *think* too hard.


I was playing around in EQ6 again today - I love this new version - it's so easy to save photos of quilts and blocks. Here's the 16 patch and pinwheels that Mom and I were working on.

The Baptist Fans on that quilt are perfect - they really suit it! Maybe Santa will bring me a Circle Lord this year....

I just checked your blog earlier and saw this quilt on your frame!!! That was super quick and the results are fantastic, as always!

The fans made a beautiful finish! How are you planning to quilt the spiderweb? I am thinking that it is a candidate for spirals. Do you have the single spiral template?

Neat! The pinwheel corner stones really add a lot to that top!

The Roman Strips quilt is SO pretty. Also love how the spiders web is coming along - great addition of the pinwheels as cornerstones in the sashing :)

The fans show up so well on that quilt...great job. The 16-patch and pinwheels looks really interesting. Could be a great way to use up some scraps!

What a sweet quilt the Roman Stripe is in the pastels! Even the backing fabric is pretty. And I love the Baptist Fans---I told Norma that you both make me want to quilt fans into everything, LOL.

Your EQ sketch reminds me of a top that my friend Joy made last year. I will have to track back to find the picture of it. Actually it was one that fooled the eye like yours--what the pinwheels did to the 16 patches. Hers was more scrappy than the greens you used in the sketch.
