During my little luncheon respite, I worked on my travel EPP (Ping) project. Quilt Otaku (Have you been to her blog, she is a Doll Quilt I & II Swapper, go take a look, I'll be waiting.) pointed out that the new Pireuds are being sold as 6 inch charms... Bless their little hearts & my pocketbook - No I haven't purchased mine yet - but I will... I just know how I am... Maybe after payday?
So I am revisiting the Taupe Snowball idea - no idea what I am talking about? Take a look here:
So my question: if the main part of the snowball is 6 inches, how big are the small squares that you use to make sew-n-flip triangles? 2.5 inches?
Any bets on wether or not I cut into my nice neat stack of Taupes this weekend? :o) I have been frozen on this subject, even though I have seen quite a few ideas on how to use them successfully... & It's not like the ideas I have are beyond my abilities - therefore a waste of my precious taupe fabric. Heck I am contemplating a snowball block, for Petes sake! & the Isotaupe ( free pattern, I have seen it done with florals - I think it would be great as scrappy - I have seen it with 1 fabric for the cross hatches...) pattern in QNM isn't any harder, nor is County Lines... (Lynn's may look Japanese, mine can be... I even have a Kona Brown...) Maybe my big problem is that I have too many idea for one selection of fabric? HMMMMM No that is definately worth pondering.
Back on the Ping subject... Take a look at what Martha did with hers. So now I am thinking, I can place my ping EPP parts on the mediums instead of the lights and use the lights on the snowball quilt... (Not serious - yet. I am also seeing if I can follow through with a pattern/BOM 100% - I doubt it, because I have already decided to remove the button inserts for the center circles...) I guess the main determinant will be my taupes & how many lights I have...
