I've had a pretty successful morning so far. Its feeling really nice since I've been sick for the last 2 weeks. I had a sinus infection that hit me hard. My teeth hurt like the dickens, fever ever 2 days, achy, clammy and so on. I thought I had a cold and you're not supposed to go to the doctor for a cold. But last Wednesday, I couldn't stand it anymore and finally went to the doctors. I had to wait for almost 2 hours to see the doctor for 10 minutes. My poor house and family. I could only get the energy to do one thing daily, either dishes, vacuuming, cleaning up after kids, make supper. So my house has suffered greatly. We also got possession of a rental house on May 1, and hubby is obsessed with doing the necessary renovations to make it contain a separate legal suite. So he was too busy to help with the house and kids. But I'm on the UPSIDE!!
We are going to Mexico in June and I would love to lose some weight before we go. This morning I started an exercise routine. I'm hoping that doing the program will help with my energy and motivation around the house LOL. I'm a terrible housekeeper and an awesome procrastinator.
Sorry for the ramblings. Back to Quilting:
Two weeks ago I went on retreat for 4 days. I brought 5 projects to work on. The first project I worked on was 2 quilts for my nieces newborn twin boys. She fell in love with the panel Forest Friends from Northcott.
Northcott's website lists all the store that purchased their fabrics and has a download for EQ7 for their fabrics. I downloaded the fabrics into my EQ7 and played around to come up with a quilt. Well I actually came up with 4 different quilts. I couldn't decide what to make so I printed all of them with the fabric requirements to take to the store with me. I found a store, Snow Goose Quilting that purchased all or most of the fabrics in the line. I had the ladies at the store help me decide which one to make. I will post a picture of the quilts when I finished but here is a little sneak peak.
The pile on the left is my yardage for the quilts and the pieces on top are for the quilts too.
Here is a picture of one of the blocks I came up with.
I really hope that she will like the quilts. The fabric and backing is flannel. Ohhh so soft.
Do you have EQ7 or a program like it? Do you like coming up with your own quilts. I would love to know and see some that you have done.
Hope you are having a great Monday!!
