Here is a peek at what I'm working on. You might remember the Starburst mini quilt I did last summer. I received numerous kind compliments and many e-mails asking about a pattern for this. So.... that's what I'm working on!
|Starburst Block 1|
I'm in the home stretch now. The pattern is written. My ever-so-talented-graphic-designer hubby is beautifying the pattern layout for me. I'm in the self-testing stage now- the part where I decide to take on a much bigger project than I have time for and make a big quilt with several blocks. The block above is #1. I had originally planned to make 9 blocks and a rather large quilt, but I've got a feeling that I might poop out after 4. Four is such a lovely number, and those blocks are so big- 22 inches square.
I had originally planned on having this done in October- I know I told a few of you that. It's February, in case you hadn't noticed. Our house managed to go through two different strains of the flu, pneumonia, bronchitis and a couple other colds this winter. My son was also hospitalized for a couple of days due to the flu and pneumonia. You get the point, right? Life happens.
If all goes well, and life doesn't interrupt, this pattern will be ready in March. I have already finished one quilt and pattern. Once Starburst is finished, an Inburst pattern will soon follow... and then there's a fourth pattern in progress.
I sense some over-commitment.... I'd better get busy.
