Here’s my second design, simpler block but still a very interesting design. 20 wedges and 20 inch blocks.

Here’s the first of my two quilt designs for this month’s Club EQ challenge. Yes it was a challenge to get a 10 pointed compass into the middle of those pieced dresden wedges but I just love it!! No prizes as such but you do receive any other entries submitted.
Time is running out if you are going to enter.
I’ve been toying with the idea of submitting an entry for the Electric Quilt Monthly Challenge. This month’s challenge is 20 (celebrating 20 years of EQ). As usual I have turned off at a different fork in the road, my attention being drawn elsewhere. I have designed a couple of quilts for the challenge but this morning I can’t remember what I named one of them!
Thank goodness I can finally add links to my posts, no idea what the problem was but they’ve finally fixed it!
Here’s a version of the different design I’ve been working on. I’ve been struggling with a colour choice which will enhance the design so I’ve chosen something with high contrast instead.
I’ll post my challenge designs later in the week.
I’m going to try and baste a baby quilt this afternoon. No one specific in mind, I found some lovely fabric by Australian designer Melanie Hurlston of Melly and me. It features cute monkeys, elephants and bees. I couldn’t resist and thought I’d make something for future grandchildren, great nieces and nephews etc so I wouldn’t be caught short. My last great nephew is already one year old and he is still awaiting his welcome gift. I have a top completed and have to base and quilt that one too. So many quilts sew little time!
Reluctantly I have decided not to continue with my TAFE course. I found I didn’t actually have an extra 50+ hours in a week after all. The catalyst for this decision was me losing a $300 car key somewhere on my 1km walk to TAFE and then I put $50 worth of petrol in my diesel car after lessons all day then the study centre, shopping for dinner on the way home, before cooking dinner etc etc etc. Luckily I didn’t drive very far and it was only a mere $400 for a new fuel filter and family members finally sorted out the mess for me. I decided it just wasn’t worth it. Then I was offered a months work at Craft Depot for the May sale. Now I am trying to catch up on things around the home requiring my attention.
Yesterday I was checking this blog http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/ and came upon this post about a bowl and spoon http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2011/06/use-it-or-lose-it.html which made me think of noodle bowls and chopsticks. So of course I was inspired to draw something in EQ.
