So for the last week or so I've been traveling. First I went to Seattle to see a dear friend get married! I had the best time and just love her and her family and her new family. It really was a beautiful wedding! Then I came home for 12 hours and left for San Jose for business. Needless to say, I haven't gotten much sewing done. I did however get the final items needed to move forward with my art quilt.
The Ruby Beholder - this is a value finder and window template.
It is to help sort fabrics by value. It helps you see the fabrics in shadings from light to dark.
I found the Do Sew on Clotide (along with some charm packs, I didn't need for the Art Quilt).
This is the traceable foundation for me to mount my pattern pieces to in the image construction of the art quilt.
And finally, I remembered to pick up some freezer paper from the grocery store for the applique pieces.
So now I should be ready to start cutting out the pattern pieces and the initial assembly.
Also, while I was gone, my Panda Swap box arrived and Kerry out did herself! It was such an amazing swap box! wow!
Wonderful stuff in there! - fat quarters, rick rack, buttons, an awesome pin cushion, measuring cups and spoons, a pattern for a fun animal (panda) blanket and some incredible panda ribbons! But wait for it - she also made me this super panda table runner! check this out! it's cheerful and fun.
Thank you so much Kerry! I just love it.
