Black has struck again!!! Remember my “black in quilts” post last week? I am a bit shocked to find yet more black in my latest project.
I guess until last week, I just haven’t been cognizant of my use of black fabrics in my quilts. And what do you know, it is another Christmas quilt. So far all my quilts that have black in them have been Christmas quilts.
I am so proud of the name I came up with for this quilt. I remember a song that I played on the piano when I was a wee lass that had the word “whirligig” in the title. We shall see if the editor decides to use or chuck the name.
It’s been a busy week for me. These whirligigs, though not difficult to make, are time-consuming. In the meantime, I have been making time to work on clothes for Baby – because she is growing up WAY to fast!! I want to do my best to shower her with clothes I make while she doesn’t know what is trendy out there. Oh, I do dread the day when she comes up and tells me, “Mom, I don’t mean to hurt your feelings, but can we go out and buy my clothes instead…”
