The good news is I finished up all my pattern testing commitments in time, thus freeing me up to work on some other things. I can offer a sneak peek of one of my test patterns, which was a bag that Morelli very helperfully offered to quality check for me. I’ll have more about what pattern this is once it goes public, but I can heartily endorse it.
It’s very nicely sized for a carry-on bag, and I’ll be making use of it this weekend as I travel to Ohio for my aunt’s funeral. Thank you to everyone who has sent condolences my family’s way. We will miss her terribly but are relieved she’s no longer suffering.
Meanwhile, I can now turn my attention to two projects. One is my Edyta Sitar Dresden Plate project that I probably won’t finish this quarter like I planned; I’m making it a little more complicated than originally planned but I really like the plan I’ve come up with and hope that I can execute it the way I want.
The second is the Scrapitude Mystery Quilt that Sandy is coordinating for us. I haven’t quite nailed down a palette yet, but will probably start cutting that tonight. I contacted the Quota chapter that my aunt was involved in and offered to make them a quilt for their Spring auction in her honor. Their colors are navy and white, and given the timing of the quilt along, I think I could make the Scrapitude Quilt in time for their auction. The only question would be whether the palette should be scrappy or focused on shades of blue. I think I will need some contrast in there, so maybe blues, maroons, and greens? EDITED: I pulled out fabrics from my stash and am going with scrappy coolness in blues, greens, and teals.
