I finished this quilt top recently for my friend Gail, The Quilted Gypsy. I sew for her and really enjoy it. She has such an eye for putting fabric together. Lots of times they are bold and fun like this quilt.
This pattern is called The Big EZ and is quite popular right now around my quilt guild. It shows off big prints beautifully and is lots of fun to make. If you ever see anything you like that I make for Gail, you can contact her and order one for yourself!
At the beginning of this month I was supposed to have these Jagged socks done from my self imposed sock club. It was during my ‘woe is me’ faze of trying to quilt and have my house on the market and for some reason that spilled over into not knitting. So it looks like these are going to take me a little longer.
I did pick up the needles again recently to knit myself some dishcloths since mine are all worn out and need thrown away. I love this dishcloth pattern. It is really fun to knit and very pretty when it is done. But it does use more yarn than a normal dishcloth so I don’t know if I will have enough. I might just close it up wherever I finish or add in a sliver of another color. We will see!
I also started a shawl called 198 yards of Heaven, but that name won’t work for mine since I am using a fingering weight yarn instead of a worsted weight yarn so it will be more like 398 yards of Heaven.
I had a lot of questions about my design wall and I wanted to tell you more about it. I did do a post about it when I got it and raved about it then and there was a link to where I bought it two posts ago but some of you didn’t catch it. I bought it online at Vanishing Design Wall.com (that’s a link you can click and it will take you there).
I bought mine with the honey finish. I absolutely love it. My blocks stick to it with no pinning necessary. It works like a shade. You give it a little tug and it retracts back up into a roll under the shelf, with your blocks still on there!! It’s especially nice when you don’t have a sewing room. You can put it above a closet or high on a wall. So there are all the details so you can get one for yourself if you like!
