I had a relatively quiet evening. I went to Mai Thai and had dinner with friends (Yummy leftovers for later today, too!) and then I came home and worked on my quilt. I think I was in bed by 11:30. Woo-hoo, exciting! Actually, I did not feel like a party. As a matter of fact, I had a coke with my meal. How lame is that? But I did dress to the 9's, so I wasn't totally casual.
And, since Cathy is wanting so badly to see the quilt I'm working on, I did exhaustive research on the web and found the patterns so I can share them with her. Mind you, the link I'm going to include here is someone else's quilt.
The quilt I'm working on is my first attempt at this type of quilt (I made a tied quilt but that's another story) so my quilt isn't nearly as cute as this one: Sunbonnet Sue & Overall Bill
I have 30 8" squares. On my quilt all of her bonnets are blue and his shirt is the matching blue in the bonnet. Each pair of blocks are different in that the skirt and overall differs per pair. I have a 2" sash between blocks and my border will probably be 2" as well. I'm considering to attempt piping for the edge of the quilt but if that proves to be too difficult, I'll add eyelet (sp?) lace.
I've decided to embroider the hands. I also used black velvet for the little feet because I love texture and think that will make it interesting. I'm not real happy with some of the fabric I used for the blocks. I realize in hindsight that some of the fabric is not quality fabric. Live and learn.....
