The big green quilt isn't done yet but I only have the binding and label left to do. I'll have it finished by Monday for sure. Big Green started with my drawer of green hand dyed fat quarters. I had already made quilts from the purple, yellow and brown drawers so it's time to start looking for the next project. The blue drawer is pretty packed so I think I'll head there next and start looking for a project.
My favorite quilt book at the moment is Colorful Quilts. I've made more quilts from that book than any other. In fact, Big Green, is the cover quilt. I did a little internet search and found that the authors had another book. I picked up a used copy of In Love with Square and Rectangles. I flipped through it last night and I think there might be a couple of candidates for a scrappy blue quilt.
In crochet news, I'm so much better and am back to this big project that I can't share. I've purchased every type of brace and tape but I think the magic solution has been these gloves. I've never bought into the Copperfit hype but I was wrong. I've been using these for about a week and the improvement in my hands has been dramatic. I can crochet about an hour at a time now.
Today will be focused on binding Big Green and washing out the 50 yards of fabric that I dyed yesterday doing some crochet!
