I often loose track of time while I am on line surfing. Looking at quilt patterns, quilting blogs, fabric stores, etc. I am sure that you all know what I am talking about.
I wanted to get more done in life. Utilize the time I had better. I have actually not always kept up on blogs. I have had to play catch up at times and re-read items that I skimmed over before. What have I been doing………SEWING!
Here is the pic of the Christmas Traditions Quilt for the church. I need to quilt it yet. I certainly had help from the other church quilt ladies. The poinsettia print is leftovers from the soldier stockings made last year. The other fabrics came out of my stash.
After I finished getting the Christmas Traditions Quilt layered up, I picked up an older project. This other project had been my “leaders and enders” project. I worked on it quite a bit at retreat back in March. This is fabric my husband brought back from his business trip to Nebraska. I made a couple wrong cuts with the Turning Twenty Simply Sashed pattern. A few clicks of the mouse and the replacement fabric was in transit. I could not find that fabric at any of the LQS.
My version has all 4 corners the same raspberry color, thanks to my ooops (along with almost 1 yard of fabric for the stash). The fabric is “Rock Candy” by Mark H. (I can’t remember how to spell his last name.) His most notable fabric line is “Fairy Frost”. This “Rock Candy” line also has the metallic sheen “Fairy Frost” is know for.
Now to my current project….I WILL be teaching a class in November. I need to finish up the sample in the next few days. Here is the stack of goodies. The alternating block is done. I just have to sew the stack of cut fabric. There is a seam on each sides of the piece you see there, then the blocks are all done.
See how neat I am (NOT!!)
Hope to see you all in blogland.
Just keep on a quilting,
