I have been collecting bright coloured batiks for awhile now and finally cut into them to make the Urban Abacus pattern using the Quick Curve Ruler. This is going to make a great kids quilt and I am going to try to wait until the summer to quilt it when I have more time to try some custom quilting on it.
This reminds me of a toy my boys had when they were little that had bright coloured beads on a yellow metal maze of wire and you slid the beads along the wire.
I have also been working on my Just Takes Two blocks...but must admit that I have started to fall behind on the applique blocks and have two not completed. My friend Lori got me started on this project so we would have a project to work on together but she has started to fall behind too. She has a good excuse though and I can now share the news....she bought a longarm!!! I am so excited for her and she also started a blog to journal her journey into longarm quilting. Her blog is Night Owl Quilting and Dye Works and you can check it out here.
