I had a great time with my friend, Jackie, yesterday! We were sewing and talking and everything that the time just flew by so quickly. We are getting together next Wed. too. :c)
I also took a picture of a miniature (finished blocks are just over 3") quilt I made for my hubby for Christmas one year. The picture in the center is from our honeymoon when we stayed at this wonderful little cabin, thus the log cabin blocks framing it.
I have all the blocks made for my quilt! I just need to get them sewn together. Today I was working on the stairstepper quilt, in which I'm sewing rows together. This part is sort of boring, but I'm almost half way done. Tomorrow, I will be working on all three quilts again!
And if I didn't have enough projects going on, I finally decided on a pattern for some charms I got from the Eleanor Burns' presentation I saw in Paducah when I went to the AQS quilt show. So, I'm eager to give that a try.
I also couldn't resist signing up for an Ostrich Challenge! Anne's Ostrich Challenge quilt was just way too inspirational for me! http://quiltingbebbs.blogspot.com/ I just have to give this sort of thing a try! So, here is my block. It is an orphan from a quilt that my mom made for my sister. She gets a quilt... and I get a leftover block... doesn't that just speak volumes! LOL! Now, I have to go looking through my stash to see if I have any fabrics that work well with it. I'm sure I'll find something. And if you want to see what all the fuss is about, check it out for yourself... http://www.peachquilting.com/xoops/
