Isn’t this a pretty floral? It’s decorator weight cotton, but I’m going to use it for the centre large diamond of a Jane Austen quilt. Ever since the Jane Austen Patchwork Inklingo collection came out, I’ve been thinking about making one and, as I was finishing another portion of the red and white border last night, I remembered I had this piece of fabric left over from the making of the side drapes in our living room. It will be perfect! Now I’ll just find some fabrics in my shabby stash that will play nicely and I’ll be ready to start it.
Yesterday we ran a few errands, and the weather was glorious. I can’t get over how green everything is looking so early.
One of the errands was to pick up this! I have wanted an iPad for ages and yesterday there was a fabulous sale which we took advantage of. The first thing I did once we got it home was to download the app for the Red and White Quilt show from last year. What a treat to see all those beautiful, magnificent quilts. I know it’s nothing like what it must have been to see them in person, but to have the chance to see them like this is a huge bonus.
And that’s where the title of today’s post came from – fabric for a quilt and the technology that enables me to see those beautiful quilts from last year’s exhibit.
Last weekend I picked up a cover for my eReader. They had many, many different covers available but there was something about this one that really appealed to me. I like the fact that now when I finish reading, it feels even more like a book as I close the cover.
Mr. Q.O.’s caption for this one is, “More toys for you?” Baxter was less than impressed with the sounds from the iPad. There is definitely something he sees out on the roof garden at night and, whatever it is, he absolutely does not like it. Last night he was growling at it. Mr. Q.O. couldn’t believe the noise he made and initially thought it was a motorcycle going by.
