It’s the running joke in the office… we’re mostly quilters and stitchy-people so it’s not uncommon to walk by a table with new fabric and suddenly forget what it is you’d gotten up to go do-get-retrieve-whatever. Squirrel! It’s how being completely distracted is described… it’s a bit like “ooooh… shiny, pretty!”
When I first started making quilts, I loved strip-piecing. Nine-patches and four-patches, Irish Chains and Rail Fences – even strips that finished at less than 1″ didn’t seem that difficult. I made a Sun and Shadow quilt, a Trip Around the World and a Lone Star – it was still strip-pieced. But half-triangle squares? Not. On. The. List.
Last week I perused the blogs of some of Moda’s designers and found great information, patterns, and inspiration. (And if you’re following along on the All in a Row blog hop you’ve probably encountered more.) This week I checked out a few of the designers’ websites and the goodies available there.
