There's just so many things that catch my eye. And I think "I HAVE to do that!" I won't live long enough to do all the quilts and other projects I want to do...but I'm sure going to try.
So anyway...here's what my ADD self has been up to the past week.
I've completed the pieces for 20 spiderweb blocks and have started putting them together. These darn blocks are sooooooo addictive!
Because I was running out of this particular red fabric, I thought I was going to have to finish at 20 blocks. Then I took a a fateful trip over to one of our area shops and found more! I'm not sure how many more blocks to make. I figure this will be a long term project that I'll just keep adding scraps to. When this next two yards of red is gone then maybe I'll be done.
Last week I started ANOTHER Portobello Market quilt. This one will be my third for the shop! It sells so well that it decided that I make another one just for Houston Quilt Festival. I am using Paula Barnes' new line Greystone...with a few oddballs thrown in for more variety. This is the first block.
For anyone interested this block is actually called Columbian Star. It is only called Portobello Market because that's the name Moda published the free pattern under. They are published using the name of the fabric line usually.
By the time I'm done making this quilt forever I'll have made it more than half a dozen time...because I have fabrics set aside for other ones using this pattern and ideas for an 30's and Kaffee one also. I'm a glutton for punishment I tell you.
Question...would anyone be interested in learning how to make this block? It's much easier than it looks. I promise.
