Boys Becoming Men, Men Becoming Wolves.
Ok, so the subject line? No relation to anything I'm going to talk about, but if you don't watch 30Rock, you're missing out, and you might want to check out this. And that's all I have to say about that. In more, ehm, relevant craft-bloggy news, I finished the "Post-It" quilt. Next time, I think I will cut the squares a bit larger, 4" instead of 3.5". Oh well, you live and learn. I am fairly pleased with the texture of the quilting though, this photo of the quilt before the binding was sewn on shows how bunchy and imperfect the whole thing is. I am totally in love with the fabric I used for the backing, which is part of the new Urban Chicks for Moda "Blossom" line. The print comes in 4 colorways, but I'm a huge fan of this very Martha green. And when I went to the quilt shop to pick it up, I found this fabulous stuff, part of Moda's "Allspice Taperstry" line, which I really wouldn't have taken a second glance at, but this pattern is just soooo good. I already made a new covered bulletin boards out of it, that I will photograph just as soon as I paint the frame.
