Detour

Well I know I was supposed to be working on the Jacob's Ladder. I did, I honestly did do some work on it tonight. I have cut out all the strips I need to complete the HST and have the squares cut to sew them together but I really wanted to make something with more color. This is what I came up with. Last summer I found a picture of a bargello kimono and liked it but didn't want to sew the strips together. I wanted this to be a simple project, just for the evening. I followed the picture as well as I could decipher, I thought maybe this is how it was put together. I used an Asian print I have. I like the outcome. I will quilt it and figure out who will receive this as a gift.

Now that the detour is over I will get back to my regularly scheduled program. I have sewing group tomorrow so I need to get things ready for our Christmas party. We are to bring 4 fat quarters for an exchange and some goodies to munch on while sewing. I look forward to meeting with all the ladies and sewing together. It is much fun to see what everyone is working one. Just like reading the blogs I have marked, so much fun to see and read about what everyone is up to. Have a good evening. Dot

I love detours. It gives time to regroup and refocus. That asian print is gorgeous.

How big is that quilt? I like it, I can see it on the wall or on a bed. I love that fabric.
