Thursday on the Wall

I spent WIP Wednesday delivering hazardous materials (paint and motor oil) to the recycling center, so here is what's on the wall this week.

It's the sample for November's Jelly Roll Party at Ruth's Stitchery. I had a little trouble with the pattern, but once I basically re-wrote it to work with my jelly roll, it's going pretty fast. The pattern is "Mirror Mirror" from A Quilter's Dream, and the fabric is "Little Black Dress" from Basic Grey for Moda. I'm excited to see how it looks with the remaining blocks, but first I have to finish my Quiltmaker's Scrap Squad quilt and write the blog post.

Since I can't show you the quilt until it appears on the blog next Friday, I'll give you a sneak peek of the lovely quilting done by Cornelia:

If you're a PBS fan, you probably already know a new season of "Foyle's War" has launched on public television. I always TiVO Masterpiece Mystery, so I can watch it twice. Each episode equals enough knitting time to finish one hat for Hats for Sailors. Here's the first two of the season:

Isn't this yarn great? It's a custom hand-dyed yarn from Sunrise Fiber Co. The colorway is called "Freedom" -- perfect for US Navy sailors, don't you think?

This had is made from the Liberty Wool I won in a Hats for Sailors Giveaway. The colors didn't photograph very well, the cast-on edge and the very top is really a soft olive green. If you're a knitter, go to the HFS website to take a look at the incredible giveaways being offered for the next round of knitting!

I've only received one entry for the September UFO parade so far -- I hope you're sewing away on your #6 UFO!

  1. Lovely quilts, Marti, and the hats are amazing. :o)

  2. That red white and blue knits up interestingly - looks really funky.
    Has to be one quick off the mark in the group!

  3. Unfortunately I was not able to get to the sewing room at all this month. Looking for a better chance in October.

  4. Pretty projects... I look forward to seeing more of the quilt! And thanks for the reminder - I do have a finish and I'll send you a pic.


Thanks for taking your time to comment. If I don't answer in an email, it's because you're a no-reply commenter and I can't find you!
