I'm heading out to a Halloween party this evening. A costume party with a 50's, 60's and 70's theme. For my costume, I thought I would channel my inner Joan from the series Mad Men...meaning I want to look like this tonight...
Unfortunately, I have a feeling I'm going to end up looking like this....
LOL! That's a photo of actress Andrea Martin dressed as her character Edith Prickly....let's hope there's more "Joan" than "Edith" in my costume tonight!
As for quilting, here are a few photos of the Astor Manor jelly roll project I'm working on.
|Two strips sewn together then cut into 2 1/2 inch strips, ready to make my four patches.|
|A few extra blocks were cut to make sure I had enough four patch blocks to go across the top of the quilt.|
|I put two strip of brown at the top and the bottom of the quilt center. The four patches are ready to be sewn together then added to the top.|
|A closer shot of the top portion of the quilt. I still have a few strips of fabric left, they will be used in some way for the bottom portion of the quilt.|
