new fabric and complete blocks
It's been an up and down sort of week nice to finally arrive at Friday night. I thought I would share the perfect tree word fabric I found for Nancie who was in our summer class of Tonya's-now that she has received it. Plus, I finished and mailed off 31 heartstring blocks to help in the green center short term project. I cleared this counter space and found it perfect for trimming the string blocks. You can see the nice pile of fabric debris left.
Tonight I have made the first block in a new quilt project. Once I get a few more made up I will share a photo. This is the quilt I am making for our Christmas family mom and dad. All fabric from stash, my favorite place to shop as a rule. Tomorrow I am having my one day personal retreat. I hope to cut and make a lot of blocks. One block finishes at 14.5 inches, so this should go together pretty fast. Sunday is our first Sunday of the month charity group meeting date. Karen and I plan on pinning several quilts and quilting up a storm. It is supposed to rain over the weekend and I can't think of a better thing to do than stay inside and play with fabric. And, as the quilt shop where we meet is only a mile from Alice, I think a fast visit afterwards will be in order.
