Woo Hoo!! I'm almost there ~ done with the squid quilt-top that is. I'm really hoping I can get it done before the PMQG meeting on Thursday, I want to bring it to show to the rest of the group. I'm just so excited! I think this is one of the first projects I've done that I'm happy with all the way through (at least so far). I'm also hoping to get some feedback on how much to add to the sides. I could add enough to make it a twin size quilt... or I could just at a small border all the way around and call it good as a skinny quilt. Decisions, decisions.
So I'm already thinking of my next quilt. That's because I'm going to wait to actually quilt the squid top until I get more practice with free-motion-quilting. There is a quilt contest I could enter given by the Modern Quilt Guild and the theme is monochromatic colors... and a friend of mine asked me to make 2 baby quilts to put into her store (on consignment)... and so... I'm thinking of a monochromatic baby quilt!
In the meantime, I'm going to try my hand at some "mug rugs" they are small little quilted pieces to use as coasters ~ and hopefully they can turn out really super cute like Megs here... hers are very inspiring. I can use the mug rugs to practice quilting too.
Sooo much to do. So I'm ending this note here and am going to get busy on finishing my squid quilt! Here is a progress shot taken about a week ago:
