I won any book I wanted from Emily @ "Em Celebrates" and "Celebrating Big Girl Pants". I chose this book. I absolutely love it. I love the cow in the book (since I collect cows) and I'm thinking I can change it into a Moose (I collect them too). Thank you, thank you, thank you Em. I luv U girlfriend.
I recently joined a new group: "Quilts, Bindings and Books". We are going to read a book and then make a quilt that represents some portion of the book. The book we choose is "The Lover's Knot" by Clare O'Donohue. So I went to Amazon and ordered my book. Of course I had to check out some quilting books.....I was bad....lol
I love applique and this book is great. It has a DVD with the patterns and you can print the patterns up in 5 different sizes. But that's not all....
I am such a fan of Kathleen Tracy. I follow her blog religiously. And my DH won't throw a fit at my buying books as long as they have anything to do with the Civil War. lol
Now I did get some sewing done too.
I finished the quilt top for my nephew to be, Cowen. It was too dense with all pieced blocks so every other block is a neutral plain block. I like how it turned out. This weekend I will sandwich, pin baste and machine quilt it.
Don't think that I have forgotten my "Primitive Primer" quilt.
I've been so busy with so many projects lately. The other day I pulled this block out and started working on it again. I usually work on while the Detroit Tigers are playing. After this block is done I need to make the Starburst block and the appliqued border. I can't wait to finish it. I already have a wall I plan on hanging it.
Today would have been my Dad's 90th birthday. He passed away in February 2010 on Superbowl Sunday. How he loved the Superbowl. I miss you Dad.
Wishing you a quilty day.
