I got started early today (7 AM)--housework first--then quilting.
I am going to be demonstrating some tools at The New Ewe during the Spring Shop Hop next week and had a few items to finish up. The first was the Circle Savvy Ruler from Creative Grids. I was quite please by how it worked. I did find that using my 28 mm rotary cutter worked much better than the 45 mm cutter. I wanted to show that it could be used to make things other than quilts. I was quite please with the placemat I came up with as well as the potholder, circular napkin and jar lid cover. I still have other things in mind, but that will be enough to demonstrate how to use the tool with a rotary cutter.
I do want to make a sample for a few late spring classes I would like to promote during the shop hop.
I also took the Mickey Mouse Pinwheel quilt to the longarm quilter today. She doesn't have many items to do right now, so I may have it back soon, ready for binding and shipping to the little guy I made it for.
I will be participating in a give-away blog hop from March 8 through 14. I have added the blog logo to the side bar on my pages. I hope you will visit my blog after 12 PM on March 8. I have a nice give-away for someone.
Now, off to work on a few other things before dinner.
