Sweet Sixteen

I finished all 16 Starlett blocks and I love each and every one!20170418_204407 (1)

As is, the quilt will finish at 72.5″ square which is not quite large enough to fit a queen size bed and have some drape to it.  I don’t want to add ultra wide borders so I’ll be adding sashing between the blocks and narrower borders.

I auditioned this light purple, which would work, but my customer prefers something in a blue tone.20170417_183953 (2)

Totally Off Topic & A Giveaway

When I was putting on lipstick the other day, I thought about how my sis hates the way my lipstick ends up being shaped. She says it’s ugly.  Considering how a lot of lipstick comes brand new, I think my lipstick shape is perfectly normal.

My sis’ lipstick on the other hand, is a hot mess. It looks as if she rolls it all the way up to apply and then forgets to roll it back down before putting the top back on. LOL!

Sis Ugly Lipstick

Alas, I’ll let y’all be the judge. Whose lipstick is uglier?

It got me to thinking about something I saw on Facebook awhile back. About how your lipstick shape says a little something about the type of person you are.

Mine most resembles the curved shape, so I guess that means I’m Outgoing. They don’t have a “hot mess” category, but I can tell you that my sister’s lipstick ultimately ends up flat because she throws away the 7/8 of it that breaks off, so that makes her Frank. hahaha.

It Seemed Like A Good Idea

I wanted to make a mug rug for one of my doctors.  Instead of going through any of the many books and magazines I own, (call me lazy),  I hit the internet.

Some of my books

I found this pattern, Mock Logson Quilter’s Cache.

Then I pulled this fabric. Why? Because my doctor is Asian, and this is Asian fabric.

My lovely friend Izola, @throughmyeyes on IG, sent me this beautiful fabric from Japan a few years ago. Thanks, Izola!

I cut enough fabric to make four mug rugs. And even before I started assembly, I wasn’t thrilled w/my fabric choices. It’s a bit overdone. I didn’t have to use ALL the Asian fabric I own in a little mug rug.20170225_110953

But, I sewed all four together anyway.  20170226_193306

I’ll have to force myself to finish at least one of them to see if I like it any better.  I doubt I will.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time, God bless.
