I have been getting quite a bit done recently. That is certainly nice for a change. I have designed 2 quilts this week and things are falling into place, getting ready for Spring Quilt Market in Pittsburgh. I finished up a quilt design today going through yards of graph paper, several pencils and one eraser. All were sacrificed for a good cause. I'm pretty happy with the design. Maybe it is all this sunshine we have been getting here in Michigan. THAT is certainly nice. Oh, it is still pretty cold, but it is blindingly bright today. Did you know that this area of Michigan gets more cloudy days than Seattle Washington? Seattle gets more rain, but we get more of the "dreary." So, the last few days have been wonderful. Now the hand drawn designs get sent to Lisa in Florida who does our pattern graphics and improves on my directions. I tell her how I made a quilt and she cuts out about 5 or 6 steps and makes it super easy. *Smack* (that is the sound of me slapping my forehead after I read how she edits my directions). She is a GENIUS.
Polly has already made the rug to go with this quilt. She is not just a genius - she is freaky fast. Let's just say that Polly is prolific. She has made a ton of rugs and has many more in her head waiting to be made. You will have to wait to see the quilt as it exists just on paper. Polly is taking orders on kits for the rug above- "Wiscasset". If you are interested - you can email her HERE.
