I decided that I needed to make a sample with the new Fresh Air jelly rolls that have come into the shop. The pattern -Diamond Delight- is in the book "Strip Clubbing" and is just perfect for these fabrics. After stripping and cutting all the diamonds, I have a 1 complete row (out of 5) done.
Then I looked at the calendar. OMG! It's August. The North Texas Shop Hop is in 30 days...this year's theme is a scavenger hunt (The Case of the Wild Goose Chase), and each shop will feature a quilt that utilizes flying geese units.
If this blog had sound, you would be hearing the screech of brakes as I change gears from Diamond Delight to Shop Hop. I designed a quilt on Sunday, cut the fabric on Monday, and am now in the process of making 108 flying geese. And when I finish that, I must quickly get started on the next Strip Club quilt for September.
So, I will gaze longingly at the diamonds. Don't worry, I'll come back to you.....someday...
