And Another Thing...

What's new? It's been a while, here's what I've been up to.
I made some pillows, that match a quilt made with "Fandango" that a friend made.
I made some Bee blocks, here's September, based on "Map of the States" by Oh Fransson.
I love the screen printed bird fabric that Lauree sent!
And here's a house block that Heather requested.
Houses are hard!
I have been humbled by the house block. They are definitely harder than they look. This is about my sixth attempt. There were a lot of remodels before the final result.
She wanted bright, and I would absolutely live in a hot pink house. With a flower petal roof. And a pink flamingo in the yard.
Who wouldn't?
What else? I saw Kathy Griffin.
She's a tiny little pocket person, and never took a breath the whole time she was on stage.
And I went to the Pacific International Quilt Festival with my dear, dear friend.
I fell in love with this one, by Carol Taylor.
I seem to remember falling in love with another of her quilts last year at the show. I think I might be in love with Carol Taylor. I just Googled her and found out that she's going to be teaching locally in January. I need to take me some classes! I don't think it's stalking if you pay to see someone, right?
I didn't catch who made this quilt, but it's awe inspiring.
I can't begin to imagine how someone made it.
My brain doesn't work that way.
And what else?
I finished the binding on the Sultry quilt.
And I started a triangle quilt out of Origins.
I love me some Origins. It looks really yellow in this picture, but it is a yellow background, so maybe it's closer than I think.
I used the very scientific "SIAH" process to pick the background of Bella Butter fabric; Stuff I Already Had. I think it works.
You'd think I'd have more things to share, it's been so long, but I don't. I'm a pretty boring person at heart. I watch a lot of TV, I try to make my dog snuggle with me, I work full time. Today IS the Sweet Baboo's birthday though, THAT'S exciting! We're meeting friends at a Fondue restaurant tonight. Should be tons of fun.
I'll let you know.
