Lori at Humble Quilts posted a picture yesterday of a small quilt she had made using a kit sent to her by Wendy from The Constant Quilter. You can see Lori’s quilt here. It is adorable! If you haven’t seen Wendy’s blog, check it out. I have followed her for quite some time. She does beautiful work!
Then I just needed to find the perfect piece for the center. It didn’t take me long to come across a remnant of a fat quarter that had the perfect print of George Washington.
Of course, now that I think about it, I might have a good piece with Lincoln on it…hmmmm….
This might be the perfect project for me this week. I think I am getting more house stuff and less quilty stuff done while hubby is away. I got the bedroom painted in only two coats! Here is the paint I used:
Oops! It is Pittsburg Paints Grand Distinction and I bought it at Menard’s. It has primer in it! I think this is the best paint I have ever used. I finished painting the walls late Sunday night. Apparently too late as now I need to paint the trim. Sigh. And yes, I know I should have done that first. I also cleaned carpets and mowed the lawn yesterday so last night I was too tired to sew. Imagine that! I got my 4 patches out and George cut out and that was it.
I hope to do a bit of sewing before work this morning. Have a great day!
