I've also been working on wedding invitations - we printed them ourselves, Eric cut each of them, and I am hand-stamping the decorations:
|These are cards requesting fabric for our wedding quilt. |
Each is now stamped with "A REQUEST." Whew!
My Spring Zig-Zags I started last time it snowed - I guess in protest and anticipation. I was inspired by this quilt and used the HST tutorial from p. s. i quilt.
Mine is made with 4-inch finished blocks and will finish as a wall-hanging. I did sketch it out and color it in pencil to make sure I had my dimensions right, then cut out my big squares and threw them up on the design wall. I played with the layout until I liked the way the colors worked, then started sewing them into HST blocks.

Wow, that second yellow shows up brighter in the photo!
|Starting to join the rows and match points. Yellows at bottom are auditioning to be included.|
I think that's sufficient cheeriness to celebrate this beautiful spring day! I hope yours is as sunny and warm!
