My March "Quilt To-Do List" is almost complete! I have only to sew the blocks together for my March UFO and I'll be free to sew whatever I want for the rest of the month!
Here's what's on the design wall today:
It's the Colorado Shop Hop quilt from 2010. The background fabric was custom-printed for the shop hop, and it highlights scenes of Colorado. You can probably pick out the State Capitol building. Do you see the "Welcome to Colorful Colorado" sign? I drive past it every time I come back from Idaho. There is also a hot-air balloon, reminiscent of the Labor Day Balloon Festival. And do you see the Sculptured House, which featured in the 1973 Woody Allen movie, Sleeper?" DH and I saw that move at a midnight Woody Allen festival in 1976. The tickets cost 99 cents, and we paid in pennies harvested from our penny jar!
The May Jelly Roll Party Quilt is "Grandma Mary's Five Patch." I chose this one for May because in the US, Mother's Day is the second Sunday in May. And my mother's name is Mary.
As I put this quilt together, I realized it is the third one I've made from Kate Spain's "Terrain" collection. Must be my favorite, huh?
I also finished test-sewing another bag for Sara of Sew Sweetness today. Come back Wednesday to see the new bag, and enter the giveaway for one of Sara's patterns!
