Another Amulet and more
Another amulet! This one is not in my patterns, although the previous ones and more are in my pattern "Awesome Amulets", which is available at the shops listed under "links".
This week has been busy! My husband is taking some time off, and we just picked up our new boat! So while he is busy installing electronics so that we can take it out, I've been busy working on a really large quilt. It will be an oversized king when it is finished, and so far I've made two sizes of star blocks, the largest of the half log cabin triangles, and am busy working on pinwheel blocks. I started with a large fat quarter pack of the "Gingham Rose" by 3 Sisters for Moda, but quickly realized that I needed to get some larger pieces for the border and binding, and more.
I also have a huge crazy quilt in progress that I hope to finish by the end of the year! There are twelve 20" blocks that are almost finished. They will be put together with sashing and layered with batting to help protect the backing fabric from the knots, etc. Since I am planning to do either regular quilting or sashiko style quilting in the sashing and border, it still has a lot of work to be done, and will require a regular binding to finish the edges.
Well, enough for now,
