WIP Wednesday ~ 6/5/2013 :: Hope Valley Twister Top, Cutting Mats and a Winner
I got my Hope Valley Twister blocks put together! I went with making a wall hanging. I think I'll revisit the pattern and make a bigger quilt sometime. I love the look of this block. I started putting the whole blocks together using a y-seam and quickly decided, since there were so few blocks, to take them apart (in half) and sew them together in rows. Much better :)
I feel like my WIP list is manageable now. I have 3 flimsies. I have my on-going hexies and Grandmother's Flower Garden. So comparing my huge list from last year. I've either finished, changed or used most of those WIPs. I think I'm in good shape and can maybe even start a new quilt!
In other exciting news, I got a new rotary cutting mat yesterday. Okay, maybe that's only exciting for a quilter. I really needed one. My old one was in sad shape. Michaels had a 50% off coupon so I used it for my mat. Let me tell ya how nice it was to trim up my Twister top on the new one...it was nice.
And last but not least the winner of Lori Holt's Bake Sale Rolie Polie from Fat Quarter Shop is Tracy! Congratulations Tracy and thank you Fat Quarter Shop!!
