Line Art--a new project!

When I saw this pattern in "Quilts and More", Winter 2010, I knew I had to make it.  It uses 2 1/2" strips--perfect for a jelly roll.  Since I had one yelling  "USE ME, USE ME", I took the challenge.  I like the idea of using one color of fabrics for the pattern too.  Might try that later.

I've almost gotten all the strips sewn together, but I had to stop to go to a quilting store sale (40% off bolts if you took it all).  A great time to buy backings and also I found some small yardage of batiks.  Well, I also found a couple of other pieces too.....hey, I saved 40%, remember?!!!

Now it's ready to get ready for the Super Bowl party at my house.

My husband and I are not big football fans, but I love a reason to eat party snacks so my daughter and her family are coming over for the evening.  Should be fun!  This is a big game and I don't care who wins, but I am in a quilting "pool" where I signed five squares in hopes of winning 100 fat quarters.  The problem is they haven't filled the squares yet (the store is still open) so I don't know what scores I need to send  my "mojo" to.  You know I believe it doesn't hurt to think real hard on those scores.  LOL

So tomorrow I will finish the top of my Line Art quilt top.  Oklahoma is suppose to have ANOTHER snowstorm on Wednesday so that will definitely be a good day for sewing if I can't get it done before then.


  1. I agree Linda I love that quilt. Quick and easy but looks great.
    Enjoy your shopping. Please show use what you bought.

  2. That is a good looking quilt. I love all the colors.

  3. I would like to know more about this quick quilt as l would like to make a few for the flood relief here in QLD. I am also very proud that you managed to save 40%.
