I mentioned in my last blog that I had been distracted for a week or so with another project. Thought that I would give you a little peek at what I was up to. I had bought some really great fabrics called Taxi, from Hawthorne Threads (one of my favorite online fabric stores) a few months ago. Maybe longer, since we know that times does fly. I did notice that they got some more of the fabric in just recently, so it should still be available if you are interested. http://www.hawthornethreads.com/fabric/designer/alice_kennedy/taxi
For this project I used a new set of blocks from Chantells Creations. These are made 'in the hoop' using my Babylock Ellisimo's 8"x8" hoop. I stitched out 30 of the blocks and then attached them together using a zig zag stitch, and then a satin stitch on top of that. I then bound the quilt in the traditional manner.
Here is a close up view of two of the blocks.
