The tutorial is ready
My weekend plans changed! I was going to do lots of mosaic, load my next quilt, make some postcards and start a new quilt. I made a little progress on a couple of those things but mostly I spent a few days with my foot elevated because I sprained my ankle WALKING UPSTAIRS! What a klutz! I was lucky though because I had been in the basement to cut glass for a frame. When I fell I dropped the glass and it shattered in dozens of pieces and I didn't get one cut. That's a miracle that makes the sprain no big deal except that it interfered with the great exercise routine that I had going.
The sprain wasn't bad and by yesterday I was up doing some things. I pulled out my shibori scraps that were left over from Loony Moony and I'm starting to play around with some postcard ideas.
But mostly I played around on the computer. I researched and planned a couple of vacations and I got the tutorial written for this quilt. I'm calling it Bars and Stripes and the instructions are basically cutting instructions because the piecing is so easy to figure out. Click on the quilt image to go to the instructions. I even included instructions for a Quilt of Valor version.

I like how you squeezed in planning a couple of vacations! I just don't go on vacations although I probably should. I burn much of my vacation time taking days off to help with the band.

I like this style of quilt, thank you for sharing the pattern with us. It has many possibilities I think.

Thank you for putting this together -- I have lots of scrappy leftovers that could be worked into this design with very little trouble.

Putzing about on the computer is one good way to rest your ankle - and sounds like you were productive too.
