Batik Cascade, Wheat Fields, Joy of Computer Work, Kat O Plenty, Hidden Stars, Step Afghan


I did some more quilting on Batik Cascade (Batik Go-Round) by Karen Combs.

I also began piecing my first quilt design. I designed this and bought all the fabric for it ages ago, but I'm only just now starting to actually make it. I took an existing traditional (I think) quilt block and played around with it to create my own block. Or, quilt designs being what they are, I may just have reinvented the wheel. At any rate, I'm saying it's mine unless I find out otherwise. I'm calling it Hidden Stars because there are no stars in the block itself, but when the blocks are sewn together the stars appear. Here's what I've got done so far:

Cross Stitch:

I've all but finished Kat O Plenty, a Mini-Kats™ design by Linda Connors of Calico Crossroads®, adapted from the artwork of Kathleen Kelly of Kats by Kelly™. He just needs whiskers and eyes.

I also did some more stitching on Joy of Computer Work which is based on artwork by Randal Spangler and adapted to cross stitch by Michele Sayetta of Heaven and Earth Designs. I didn't do any work on the text this week.

Swedish Weaving:

I did some more work on the towel based on Wheat Fields from Learn to Make Monk’s Cloth Afghans by Marilyn T. Magly.


Finally, I did some more work on the step afghan.
