I’m making progress knitting the Swirl jacket I began over a month ago. It’s either going to be wonderful or a big mess. Not sure at the moment. Here’s what it looks like now
Also working on a new quilting project. It’s a “repeat” of one I made a few years ago — “You Melt My Heart.” It was inspired by Movin Meat’s post: Fearful Symmetry. As before, I took the EKG (photo credit), printed it out, enlarged a small segment and used it for the quilt.
The first one never sold on Etsy, so I donated it to my old medical school for the silent auction at my 30th medical school reunion. Then I ran into a cardiologist friend, the conversation somehow turned to quilts and I showed him the photo of the quilt (based on an EKG). He commented that he would like to make a bid on it, so I “won” the quilt at the auction and gave it to him. I almost ended up in a bidding war with a young hospitalist who liked the quilt. I apologized and told her why I wanted it back, she gave in. I promised to make her another.
Since I no longer have the same fabrics as the first version, I laid out some fabrics trying to decide on how this one should look. I ended up choosing the two on the left for the heart.
I like this for the background but don’t have enough to do the binding as well, so will need to make a trip to the fabric store and try to find something that will work as well or better.
