I was coming to the computer and thinking I must blog something today. I read an old blog post from someone else about posting the process of a quilt and decided to show you the fabrics and pattern I chose for my SIL #2 quilt for Christmas.
Until, that is, I logged on and saw a Yahoo headline about Oprah surprising her audience with a trip but the host country is also paying for it. I had to see what that was about.
Now, to my friendly Aussie's out there, I have one thing to say, "I hope to hell it works." For me, I still think that it will be hard to drum tourism for one of the places with some of the most deadly annimals/insects/etc. on earth under any circumstances. Best of luck to you!
And alright, just because I have it ready, here is the fabric (from mom's collection in my stash) and the pattern (Baby Harlequin in McCalls Quick Quilts October/November 2010 magazine) for SIL #2 quilt. I will not make strips of the diamonds, just use these fabrics to have random colored diamonds all over the quilt.
What do you think? The flowered fabric at the top and bottom will be the backing.
