I also worked on the January 2011 Party With Patrick project, "Season of Love" table topper. I chose to use three fabrics rather than two as called for in the pattern. The reds are two different fabrics but have the same shadings. I think this works because the difference is very subtle.
These two projects are just tops right now. For the Raw Edge Bull's Eye lapquilt I'm still debating if I want to quilt by hand or by machine. The table topper just needs to be layered and I'm trying to decide on my quilting design possibilities.
Today is Sunday, a day of rest so I'm looking through my quilting magazines and when I take a break from that I'll work on the Prayer Shawl I'm making for a relative.
Until next time, sew on!
