What can we say? After a long, sad week, we are both happy to get back to work. Thank you everyone for your kind words. You know, we hesitated to put up the last post, but since we have been pretty open about our daily lives since this blog thing started - we decided to. We were comforted and moved. So was our family. You folks are the best.
So, what has transpired and what are we working on? Lots of stuff. This was delivered yesterday. These are the Bar Harbor wovens. Expect them, along with the prints, in your quilt shop next month. Oh, what a nice taste of summer these are!
I have been also plodding along on a new quilt design. I am using scraps, of course. I won't bore you with how much scraps I still have. (Ummm, more than when I started, despite the laws of physics) I changed my mind half-way through and decided on a smaller quilt. These are left over.
Any thoughts of how they should live out their half-square triangle destiny?
I also decided on the fabric I will use for Blackbird Designs beautiful applique quilt.I have been collecting reproduction Turkey Reds for a couple of years and I saw this fabric collection by Whistler Studios called Folklore. I picked out a couple to round out my stash.Note: There is probably 4 times the amount of fabric that I need to make this quilt - but collecting the stash is most of the fun, isn't it? I am looking forward to actually being able to work on a block soon. Keep coming back for updates. And, Hey, thanks for stopping by today.
Also, expect a MEGA give-away soon. Just as soon as my UPS guy gets it here.
