Today is my friend, Debra, birthday. Happy birthday Debra!
I didn't do too much this week quilt wise. I did press, organize and label the tumbler units shown on my design wall last week. I must have done a lot of reading or playing Spades and/or Sudoku.
On Thursday the Trace n Create template arrived in the mail and I got majorly distracted and made two iPad covers for my daughter and I. We have covers with the keyboard attached, but it's kind of dirty and a little heavy when we don't need the keyboard. I made the Mickey one first using pattern instructions. It's a little too much wiggle room for me.
On the second one on the inside I added a pocket to put a note or two and a stylus. Also, because the first one was a tad too large, I modified how far in the elastic straps extended. The red strip is extra strip on the inside; the blue is the original called for by the pattern. It's so cool that it stands up this way by itself. I used layers of heavy weight Pellon inside instead of the plastic insert sheets recommended.
I squared up about 70 HSTs; still have approximately 60 more to go. I sometimes dread this step in quiltmaking. These units will go on my weed whacker quilt in the border.
