The Taxi quilt..... pattern by Heidi Pridemore

Since you all were betting.... I brought home a few bits of fabric the very first day of work...probably 1/3 of my wages for week..... but it really will finish up a block of the month...that I am doing this year....so not too terrible. I am including the Alabama version of the TAXI quilt ...available as a free pattern ...by Heidi Pridemore...the link is at http://www.ttfabrics.com/images/patterns/Taxi.pdf My friend chose to do it in crimson black and white. and using Alabama fabrics randomly. I adore that color combo...but any color plus black and white would be fun. I have thought about turquoise. So here is the photo of her quilt .... and I am happy to say I have begun to applique on my UFO ...very wonky 9 patch. I am continuing to hand quilt on my When oh WHEN.... as in WHEN oh when will it EVER be finished????? quilt. Hope to finish a customer quilt by tomorrow evening....then add borders to a UFO...on Sunday. Maybe get it quilted too. It is a simple quilt for a brother of mine. Now if I can resist the Fabric Temptation just a bit better next week. I have completed part 1 and have just cut all of part 2 for the DD online Quiltville Mystery Quilt. I am doing a 1/2 size version...as in half of the blocks in total. Maybe will sew on that a wee bit as well. Have a great weekend.
