Ooh, mail call and Rotation update.

I just got a HUGE envelope in the mail!  Seriously, it was ginormous!  I know that's not a word but it gets the point across!  hehehe

 I had placed an order with The Stencil Company for some quilting stencils.  I have to say that they were great to deal with!

One of the stencils that I wanted was on back-order and they emailed me promptly to let me know and to give me options on how I wanted to proceed...I decided to wait for them all together.

I got a bunch of 5" stencils for a Christmas quilt top so that now I can work on quilting it.  The quilt is 10 blocks x 10 blocks and I got 12 different stencils so that there will be a bit more randomness in the finished quilt.  The stencils that I got for this quilt are:
  • Angel
  • Bells/Holly
  • Candy Canes
  • Holly Berry
  • Ornament #2
  • Ornament #3
  • Poinsettia
  • Santa
  • Snowflake #3
  • Snowflake #4
  • Snowman
  • Continuous Holly
For the borders, I got a 6" star border stencil.

I also bought two stencils for a Bullseye quilt top that I have.  The borders will be done in a continuous loop pattern and the bulk of the quilt top will have a rose stipple pattern.

I was planning to start on the Christmas quilt as soon as I finish the String Block quilt I'm so close to being done with.  Now I'm thinking that I'll do the Bullseye quilt first since it's more of a lap quilt/wallhanging size.  The Christmas quilt is quite large - I think it's about 120" square.

Rotation update:

The Randomizer app I have chose La Belle Dame Sans Merci from HAED as my next project.  I made a start on it last night.  Now I'm on page 9 of the pattern which puts me on the first page of the second row!  That bright spot by the horse's head is near the bottom of this page.  

Happy Stitching!!
