AHIQ monthly post update
Here is the current state of my Chinese Coin quilt
I am debating on which fabric to use for the sashing piece between the main body and the borders. I have two vintage Marimekko pieces that I tried out. I think the one with the black background is a possibility
This Jay McCarroll - this is a no
This print - no
A spiderweb print - this is a maybe
Boo Crew - no - print is too small
Large skeleton print - not sure - maybe too bold
I plan on quilting this with different colors of thread so I don't want to add too much other color. I have a bit of red in a couple pieces of fabric already.
I made these most delicious chocolate sugar cookies last night for the guys at work. The recipe didn't even make 3 dozen cookies, but they were very easy to make and tasted so good!
It has been so warm that the daffodils are already forming flower heads! Crazy!
