Here are a couple more quilts from the exchange. It's hard to see in the picture, but the pumpkin quilt has alternate blocks of half log cabins. Both quilts have traditional (turned not fused) applique. There are lots of scrappy burgandy/red pieces in the top quilt.
Yesterday was pretty hectic. Somehow I managed to schedule major medical appointments 3 days before Christmas, what was I thinking? So the morning was spent enduring assorted indignities, being poked and prodded and squashed. Gotta love those mamograms. Ouch. More fun to come as I now need to call and schedule a colon cancer screening. Ah, the joys of turning 50... all this on top of those annoying mailings from AARP.
I rewarded myself by stopping by the fabric store, but I didn't bring home too much, just a little black fabric, a piece of something very textured looking, and a tiny bit of stripey stuff.
I went to work in the afternoon, and it passed quickly. All worth it because now I'm ON VACATION. I hope to get outside and do some fabric painting during my time off after Christmas. I do this indoors as well, but it is a much more lady-like process with smaller quantities of fabric. I am feeling the need to really FLING some paint, and soon. Woo-hoo!
