You'd think think that some time away from home and a chance to soak up some rays would be relaxing. I find this not so. We spent the first day of our SUN TIME getting a little baked! But I did spend time thinking about this week's posts.
We quickly develop a SUN TIME schedule. We can't sleep much past 6am local time (no matter where we are) and we are up and moving early. We get down to the beach/pool and secure our spot with towels. Breakfast/Lunch and then time relaxing till mid afternoon. We are then ready for a nap till we need to get dressed for our walk along the beach and dinner. We very rarely stay up for the shows and are usually in our rooms early for a good night's sleep.
In the meantime, I've been playing with Quilt Pro Systems and finding it a great tool for quilt designing.
Not only will it take a block, either something I've designed or one of their many, many blocks in their block libraries, but I can create and design an entire quilt. Let me show you.
I started with this four patch block with 2 half square triangles.
I created a quilt and rotated alternating blocks.
I added some sashing and borders.
I can now find out how much fabric to buy.
And how to cut each of my units for this qult.
Easy, Peasy. Quilt is planned and fabric requirements are determined. How is easy is that?
