Ziggy Zaggy, Ziggy Zaggy, Oi, Oi, Oi

Anyone else watch Jimmy Kimmel & Adam Carolla on The Man Show so many years ago?  At the end of the show they would hoist a beer and chant, “Ziggy Zaggy, Ziggy Zaggy, Oi, Oi, Oi”………I found the show hillarious…..granted it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it made me laugh.  So, when my husband saw my lastest quilt top he did The Man Show chant, thus naming this quilt 😉  This quilt is from  Sujata Shah, of The Root Connection’s,workshop and is from her book, Cultural Fusion Quilts.  I took the workshop along with Robin Stewart and Julie Sefton….great fun.

I’m happy with the way it turned out and it was so fun selecting the fabrics. 

I’m working on a new Bonnie Hunter quilt, Scrap Crystals from her More Adventures with Leaders and Enders.  I’m using autumn colors which are quite different that the blues & greens of Bonnie’s quilt.  Below is my design counter 😉

I’m sewing on Scrap Crystals as my main project but I have Celtic Solstice as my leader/ender project.  I love the colors Bonnie chose for Celtic Solstice so I’m not mixing the colors up on this one.  Fun times! 

I’ll be linking up with Judy’s Design Wall Monday link-up later. Edited to add: the DWM link.

 

 

Design Wall Monday

……or design bed as the case is today.  This is a framed nine patch from Jan’s tutorial here made with a bundle of fat quarters.  This is a scrap club project that I think I’ll want to make a little bigger with borders of some kind.  We’ll see.

We took a drive through some rural farming country this weekend and were looking at the animals on the farms.  DH and I both did a double take at this one:

Take a closer look:

What the heck????  Where do you get a zebra in southern Illinois?

I did a favor for a friend and she gave me a gift certificate to Hancock’s of Paducah……which explains why this was on my doorstep when I got home tonight.  Beefing up my neutrals and a beautiful purple piece 🙂  Gotta love the Hancock’s yellow/green florescent shipping bags 😉  Thanks, Margaret!!

For the Record III

A few more 2016 things I want to capture for my reference.  Hanging out with quilting friends last year I acquired some 6 yard cuts of one of my favorite fabric designers…..Jo Morton.  They were a fantastic deal, really great, but I always allow myself to buy Jo Morton because they don’t sell them in my LQS’s.    

Jo Morton did this patriotic print…..isn’t it fabulous? 

And some shirt additions…..the dark purple stripe on top has already been used in my RSC17 blocks 🙂 

And I think that wraps up what I missed blogging about in 2016 🙂
