Friday Roundup!

Yaaay! it's Friday.

Friday always feels good - even if the weather isn't, even if the laundry needs doing, even if there's a ton of work to be done..... Friday is a 'good' day!!

First up on our parade we have "Girl in the Wind" Art Quilt - Week 7.






I made my 4 pieces first and then gave them a good press. Then joined up the pieces according to the instructions and BINGO sewed up the block in no time at all.

This is the week 7 block done and dusted!!

I taped up a piece of batting onto the cupboard doors and pinned my blocks onto it so that I could take a better photo of our "girl" without cupboard door handles in her face.


Only thing it fell down as soon as the camera went 'click'. LOL!! I really need a design wall, but this room has NO available space for me to make one - What to Do???



After this 'column' of blocks we have one more - 4 columns altogether and then we do the face, join up all the rows and presto we will be finished!

Second item on our agenda today - My triangle randomness......


This is how it all started.....

That itch! The need to sew something ......

and must visit the fabric factory.....

Then the cutting madness starts..








 

Then it breaks out even further and the joining starts,

you break out into a cold sweat,
but you just can't stop ....








 One row becomes two, then three, you tell yourself you'll only do one more, you can stop anytime you want to........




When you look at the time, it says 00H01 and you know its all downhill from there......




But in the morning, with the sun shining in through the windows, it all looks rosey!!


This is 7 rows in, not sure when the madness will end.....

Random is proving to be a wild ride!!











This is the finished top - I had to lay it on the floor to get a photo - 36 x 48"
Now I need a rest......

Have a good week-end....



This is going to be my new Avatar  -  I just love it - even looks like me with the curly hair and glasses - really...no, really!

If you look really close, you'll see the wrinkles etc. LOL, really LOL!



Linking up with TGFF, Crazy Mom, Quiet Play and anyone else having a party today.......

The hair on your art quilt is looking amazing. I'm thoroughly impressed. And I love your triangle quilt. It reminds me of space for some reason. It must be the colors.

Too bad you don't have a room for your wall. Is there a room to hand it from top wall? Maybe. Your triangle quilt is looking good. I agree about the piecing madness. I pieced and pieced until I had my top, lol.
