SO MUCH DONE, SO MUCH TO SHOW AND A GIVEAWAY
I sewed the sections of the house block together for my Primitive Primer. It's really coming together. I will be working on the vase of flowers while on vacation.
This is my Hybrid Tea Rose from the 15 Minutes Play BOM series. Although there are more than one block per month. They just posted the tutorial for the next block. It is fantastic. Check out the blocks and tutorials. 15 Minute Play link is on my side bar.
I now have 10 Floribunda blocks done. They are all a combination of yellows/golds and florals. I hope to make enough for a full size quilt. All different yellows and florals. Thank you Bonnie Hunter.
The latest Barbara Brackman CW block. This is the last of ongoing projects. Now for old and new finishes.
This is a quilt that was years in the making. I took a class many moons ago with Margaret Miller. I first saw her on Simply Quilts and loved what she made. The class was called "Strips That Sizzle". I was new to quilting and wanted to try everything. I made all the blocks at the class she taught. Then the blocks went in a box. Years later while living up north taking care of Dad my hubby brought me these blocks he found. Waa Laa....the finished project. I just put this one up in my living room today.
I think I've showed this one before. I pulled it out to celebrate the warm weather. I designed this quilt from orphan blocks. Please excuse how it looks....I didn't know it was so wrinkly until I looked at the photo. I definitely need to iron it.
Last but not least....this undisclosed quilt will be mailed from an undisclosed location to an undisclosed person....LOL I will show you the complete quilt after it is mailed. Can't show it now as the person it is going to reads this blog.
Now before I leave I want to tell you about a new book and a great giveaway. Mary Lou Weidman's new book "Out of the Box with easy blocks" has been released. You can read about it here on her blog. The giveaway is from Em at Em Celebrates. She has some great fabric she is giving away. So go over and leave a comment.
Well today I will be getting some projects ready to take on vacation. Probably won't get much done but it will be there if I have the time. Tomorrow I pack the suit cases and we get up early Sunday morning to leave for the Upper Peninsula. My son lives in Marquette which is on Lake Superior. Can't wait.
I will probably post vacation pictures while up there as I will be taking my computer. I just have to keep up with my blogs.
Wishing you a quilty day filled with sunshine.
