It has been cold and windy here, so I guess winter just wasn't ready to let go yet. In fact, they are calling for snow this weekend. I really hope they are wrong. I guess I will have to wait and see. (grin) It dawned on me yesterday that I have a niece graduating high school at the end of May. I will need a gift for her, so I decided to make a disappearing nine patch lap quilt for her. I found some pretty pink paisley-like fabric, some pink with tiny green specks fabric and some green fabric, all in my stash. I have all of the nine patches made and 5 of them cut. Now I need to cut the rest of them and lay them out in a pleasing manner, then sew them together. I also have some pretty pink, beige, and green floral fabric that I think will look fabulous as a border. Just hope I have enough of it. Since I want to make this all out of my stash, I will make do with what I have. I actually have several pinkish floral fabrics, so I know I will find something. LOL Here are the first 4 nine patches.
I had several pictures planned, but may not post them since blogger is uploading so incredibly slow. I have other things to do today. LOL I will try again. I took the nine patches and cut them in half both ways. Ok, this morning I updated to Internet Explorer 8. I so wish I had not done that. I have had nothing but trouble since. I can not even count the number of times I tried to move the above picture before it finally worked. When my dh gets home, I am going to see if he can help me figure out how to get IE7 back. I am hating this newer version. You know what they say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. My dh said it was my decision whether I upgraded to 8 or not, but I know he probably wouldn't have. Now if I can just get my old one back, I will be happy and content. I am going to try once more to add a picture and if I have problems, this will be it for today. I had several pictures to share, but this is just making me too frustrated.
Now that I have all of the 9 patches cut in half twice, I need to decide how to arrange them. I have 2 or 3 different arrangements or I can just mix it all up. LOLThis is the first one.I got the picture to go where I wanted, but it wasn't easy and is so slow. Boy, I hope I can get 7 back. Here is the 2nd arrangement. Ok, that is it for me today. It is just taking too long to get the pictures uploaded, then where I want them to be. Sorry to cut this short, but I have other things to do. Everyone have a good day. Hopefully if I can get rid of IE8, I will be back tomorrow. Thanks for visiting.
