Blech...

I've been sick since Tuesday! I have gotten some sewing stuff done but I don't feel like sharing yet. Getting the pictures ready seems like too much work. My kids have also finished projects I want to share. I'm so proud of what they've done but I'm tired. Even though I feel sick and don't feel like fixing pictures, I did design a quilt for my bed today. 
Oops, I forgot to get rid of those lines! But that's the way I feel, a bit absent minded.

I want to make a quilt for my king size bed but the size is daunting. It seems like such a large blank canvas. On top of that, I've seen sizes ranging from 96" x 96" to 120" x 120".  After looking at endless pictures on Google, I finally decided to see what I could find in big blocks at one of my favorite sites. I used the Drunkard's Chain pattern from Quilter's Cache. This is one of the variations she suggested. I'm still not sure of it because it looks like an awful lot of half square triangles. I still need to calculate yardage and maybe I'll make the blocks even bigger to make less but I still feel quite a bit of reluctance to make something I don't absolutely feel excited about. I'm also playing around with Carpenter's Wheel from her site also. I love the look of this one and it would make a great medallion quilt or in a setting of 3x3.
I ordered from Connecting Threads the other day and it's already in! I love how fast their shipping is! I'll have to post pictures and get better soon now!

Thanks for commenting! I hope to have a reply to you shortly but if not it's because I'm busy quilting.
