Joyce nice work on the stitches , the quilt is beautiful Barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
No quilts today. Worked on pillowcases for ConKerr Cancer. Sewed the "hot dogs" for 12 pillowcases and got them pressed and trimmed - ready to start the side and bottom seams. Won't get around to finishing them tomorrow or Friday as I have other things on the agenda.
Tomorrow is another of our applique classes. After class, I will leave my Janome with Ken at the LQS for a going over in preparation for the VB retreat.
I worked on a block of the month square today. I had to re-do one that I did yesterday because I made a boo-boo when I cut out the first block! I cut out a 12" block when the patters said to cut out a 12.5" block:-( Oh well - good thing I have lots of stash! This is a mystery block of the month quilt and I have decided to use up a lot of fat quarters I have on hand to do it. I was tired yesterday when I made my block so today I made sure I had enough steam to do it right:-)
I am about 4 blocks from the lake but as Sarah Palin said of Russia "I can see it from my house".... :)
Pam that would be so nice, I use to love going to the lake and just sitting and reading ,It was so relaxing and I always felt so good afterwords..Barbara
Joyce, love your quilt. Great colors and I love that wavy edge with the pointy corners.
Well you all know how I love teapots , So I've started a new BOM ,that has them ,I am using the oriential fabric I got from the fabric swap .there are my first three months..Barbara
Your blocks are so cute. I love teapots too
Barbara, wonderful teapots! I have a whole book of teapot blocks, which is on my bucket list.
I love yours.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Judy ,thank you but I really want to thank you for getting me started on them. When I saw the one you did on the potholder I knew I had to make them and I have not been sorry..Barbara
I worked on a quilt today, finishing piecing quilts for a wedding gift. First one is for my step daughter, second one is for her husband to be and third one is for his 8 year old son. The little boy is always wrapping up in the quilt I made for my step daughter a few years ago, so I figured he needed one of his own. I will give all three to them as a group wedding gift. Now I just have to quilt the things.
The one below will have some grassy designs quilted into the tan blocks.
The boy and his dad are avid hunters and fishermen so I thought outdoor scenes would be appropriate. When I asked my step daughter what the boy's favorite color was she said green and red. He wants to only wear those colors. .
Judy these quilts are wonderful, I love them all. Hard to pick a favorite. Barbara
Judy T-Bellingham:finishing piecing quilts for a wedding gift
These are really gorgeous wedding gifts. Wowie! They are beautiful! I would take turns sleeping under each one each night and then start again- each one is so different and I love the detail you did on them. Beautiful work!
Marge (AKA Dimples):I like the way my Scottie dog top came out.
I love your Scottie dog quilt. It is adorable. OMG I know someone who will think it is Her! LOL
Your 1600 quilt is really cool! Nice bright colors!
