Voting is now open for the Blogger's Quilt Festival. It's a little difficult to find all the places to vote since they are broken into different categories, but this is a link to the category I entered: Applique Quilts
Vote for your favorite--there are lots of pretty quilts!
I had a very busy week that included teaching at the Stitch Therapy meetings, a sew-in at the Breezy Point conservation center, and our new Lakes Area Long-arm Quilters meeting, among other things. Fortunately, the weather wasn't very nice, so I didn't feel one bit guilty about not being out in the garden doing some clean-up and planting.
Grandmother's Choice Block 38: Nonsense
Lots of group members have been busy on their Wish Quilts:
|Silver thread for stars!|
|Some of the members chose to embroider around the heart instead of appliqueing one.|
Smart--I'm all about shortcuts!!
|Using some alternate designs--you can search the Red Brolly site and find lots of adorable drawings !|
By the way, don't miss the new designs Bronwyn has been posting for her Le Jardin Quilt--beautiful floral embroideries!!
|Block One of Le Jardin Quilt|
|Naturally, if you make Le Jardin, |
you will want to make this adorable bag to use for your workbasket!
