I have just been playing around with my linkedin cv on - Jennifer McMichael's profile

what do you think?


edit- thank you for the helpful suggestions; the original image was automatically generated by the website, but this morning I have been working on my own infographic cv based on their concept.

I will be sending it out with a standard formatted cv with all my details on it and a couple of portfolio pages, now just to cross my fingers and hope I triple checked it well enough for spelling mistakes!

Mystery Mix Tape

This week I finished the 6" blocks to make up my new Mystery Mix Tape quilt, which is based on the Mix Tape pattern by Oh Frannson, this was my original inspiration from The CraftyBlackbird.

for my God-daughter's new brother or sister. Making a gender neutral quilt was really difficult to choose the colours for, but I decided that I couldn't go wrong with a variety blues, yellows and lime green and the simple 6" blocks should be easy to make a semi-matching quilt for the new big sister.

I broke Oh Fransson's pattern down into 4 block types
Block A

Block B

Block C

and Block D

I made a variety of these blocks from my 10 materials until I had a total of 30 blocks and rotated some of them 90 degrees in the layout so it didnt end up too regimented. (Please excuse the colours on this one, it was dark, honestly they aren't quite this vivd!)

Now all that's left is to choose the sashing colour, I am thinking a light grey, but I am not sure. I think it needs something to give your eyes a break after the yellow and green, but white doesn't sound sensible for a baby quilt. Then I can make my binding from this fabric;

I absolutely fell in love with it when I first saw it, and to be honest the colour scheme for the whole quilt was taken from this fabric!
