A Moment in May

This happening tomorrow, May 2, 2010. It will be at 8am on the West Coast of the US.

A Moment in May is a project where the organizers are hoping that many, many people will take a photo at the same time. “That moment will be 15:00 hours in Coordinated Universal Time or U.T.C., the contemporary equivalent of Greenwich Mean Time. In the United States, under daylight time, this would be 11 a.m. on the East Coast, 10 a.m. in the Midwest, 9 a.m. in the West and 8 a.m. on the West Coast. For local times around the world, you can consult this converter from timeanddate.com.”

I plan to photograph a quilt or something quilt related. What do you plan to photograph?


Class & Quilt Supplies
Class & Quilt Supplies

Here are some supplies I bought recently. The Jelly Roll on the left is for the Happy Zombie/Oh Fransson quilt that I am gearing up to make.  The other Jelly Roll I bought on spec. I wasn’t sure which one I would like better based on the colors on the screen.

The Tarts are ready to quilt, so that foot is an open toe walking foot, which I am going to use. Just need to baste.

The circle cutter is for the Circles class I took with Dale Fleming. I tried hers and it works great.

The Dresden plate ruler is what I will use to cut the New Wave quilt pieces. I have marked the bit on the ruler with a post it, so I know which line I am using.

Fabric & Thread
Fabric & Thread

The food fabrics are for a quilt my mom is making. She is down in SoCal taking care of Super G, so it is not high on the priority list. I am still collecting and cutting for her. I need to get some more of the potato chip fabric as Super G wants that used for her walker caddy. I never thought she would request that fabric. I had picked out a gorgeous hydrangea fabric that is very elegant and Super G wants the potato chips!

The dots are staples in my dot box and the Philip Jacobs fabric will end up being some kind of bag.

I am unfamilar with that thread, but loved the colors and thought I could use it to embellish parts of Flower Garden, which is high on my to do list.
