Little Penguin

Phew! After many revisions, it's out there in the world!

I decided to try my favorite freezer paper foundation piecing technique on these tiny little sections and it worked like a dream. Lots of starching involved though. This block can stand up on its own.

I discovered a new freezer paper supplier and I really like the 54lb sheets. I love not having to pry pieces of paper out from in between my stitches!

("Little Penguin" is available as an instant download on both Craftsy and Etsy.)

The Holidays are Coming!

Between quilt retreat, Houston and catching up with orders, I haven't had much blogging time off late.
Working on a little design for the Holidays though. Stay tuned.

WIP Wednesday

I decided to go with the 3rd option in my quest to pick a border for the bright GFG. And I'm already questioning this decision.

Going forward with it though because I really, really, really, really want to get this quilt completed. So many other things to work on!

Border Decisions

All the "flowers" are attached to the Bright Grandmother's Flower Garden!
Next decision - borders.
I could use some advice on this...

I've scoured the web and came up with the following as my final choices
(The top border is cut off because I didn't think about borders when I designed the quilt in EQ7 and there doesn't seem to be a way to add rows to the top without redrawing the whole thing.):

The simplest choice and the one I'm leaning most strongly toward:

This one would lead to a very uneven border which, I think, would work great if I wanted to hang it on a wall but not so great for a useful quilt:
Too much green?
What do you think?

I Should be More Productive...

...but I'm having fun playing around with hexagon quilt layouts in EQ7.
Just posted this one as a free pattern in my Craftsy store:
