|My One Monthly Goal this month will be to get this little Palmateer Point quilt finished. |
I'm toying with the idea of hand quilting--maybe I can handle something this small?
|The main reason I want to get that little quilt off the design wall (where it's pinned up to avoid being lost!) is so I can start to play with these Little Boys Britches blocks. I got these made up at the Keepsakes Cabin retreat last month.|
|I also got the Mrs. Billings Coverlet Borders 11 and 12 sewn up. |
Some of the background triangles needed for Border 12 were missing. I was hoping that I would locate them when I got home, but no luck. And apparently no more of the Jo Morton Toast II fabric is to be found either.
I guess I am having another "make do" moment! Sigh.
|This is what I got done at the Green Lake retreat. |
I spent the entire time making the hourglass blocks and tiny stars needed for the sashings on my Primitive Garden quilt. A bonus was getting them all sewn together along with the blocks--lots of crazy partial seams, but easier than I expected. Whew!
|Finally my Patches of Blue book by Edyta Sitar has arrived--it's beautiful! I pre-ordered it months ago and didn't think it would ever get here--lots of eye candy to drool over.|
I couldn't resist showing my new book with some of the lovely gifts I received for my birthday in October: a bundle of gorgeous fabrics from my friend Miriam and a fun Edyta Sitar nail file (it's also a lint remover on the back side!) from my cousin Barb. She also made me the adorable mini Lucy Boston block pin cushion--awesome and adorable!!!
I guess I better get to work on my November goal before I'm distracted by something in my new book--ha-ha!
