The Red Pepper Quilts Auction Quilt is going strong and Auction details can be found here:
Thank you to all bidders who have supported this Auction ~ right now the highest bid is $475 ~ truly wonderful!
This Auction finishes at 10pm on Friday 21 January 2011. Just over 24 hours to go. Happy bidding!
Of course a little sewing, which makes me happy! It is still Summer holidays Downunder and we are all out of our normal routine. Although I do LOVE the holidays, finding time (and motivating myself) to sew is "difficult" ~ so many distractions and sunny days (finally) which all call me away from the sewing machine.
This is the start of my next quilt project. As you can see I have made more Half Square Triangles and I think you will recognize some of the red designer printed fabrics used, combined here with red basics ~ stripes, dots, ovals, solids.
The center panel is hand printed fabric from Prints Charming. The panel has been set on point and then surrounded by Half Square Triangles. (Does anyone know, or have a link to, the math associated with setting a panel on point and then adding Half Square Triangles? I totally fluked it ~ the Half Square Triangles were a perfect fit for the panel, but would love to know how to calculate it for future reference).
More Half Square Triangles needed ...
