If you haven't checked in for a while, or you are here because of WIPs on Wed at Esther or Lee's blogs...on Monday, I started cutting fabric for a new project and issued a challenge. Each guess posted on the previous or this post that identifies what the final project will be, counts toward a very cool prize. In case you are too lazy/overwhelmed/busy to check the previous post, the basic rules are: a gift certificate to my local quilt shop (who ships internationally) will be awarded to a contestant who guesses what it is that I am going to make. One entry per guess, with extra credit (guesses) for being right, or ridiculously wrong in a way that makes me snort coffee out my nose when I read your entry. Contest ends whenever I get this thing done (could be tomorrow...could be next month).
And I don't want to make light of serious addiction...but when I ran out of spray starch while pressing these blocks...I was in a serious panic. Until I remembered that I had a secret stash of dollar store spray starch. Oh yea, that's pathetic (but a huge relief).
My other project that I'm working on is my revised Heart's Desire...which I tend to refer to as Heart's Whim or that @#$% Heart quilt that I broke up with. Follow the link for details...but this is my medium-tech version of showing what I think it may look like (when I get another 30 hours of applique done). Planning to add more leave and vines around the outside. Will keep you posted.
