A new year already.. and the first month is gone..
Well hello All,
It's been awhile. I am really hoping to get back into the swing of things this year. I've missed blogging and I still have a huge pile of quilt tops that need quilting, maybe this will be the year :)
I did finish my dd's quilt in Dec.
I just did some simple, straight line quilting on it.
All of my Cornerstone blocks (made with disappearing 9 patches and flying geese) are done, I need to order some sashing fabric for it, before I can get it all pieced together.
All the ones above are vice/verse blocks, two of each.
And these 5 are just single ones, as I needed a few more to make my design.
Lately I've been working on Pat and my '+' blocks that we exchanged in 2013. I have the blocks sewn together, now I will be adding a 2" solid border, then a scrappy border...maybe a piano key border? we'll see.
a VERY busy quilt top... but I will enjoy looking at all the pretty fabrics in it :)... which needs to be ironed, of course ;)
I think I am going to be doing this BOM/blog hop this year. I am not much of an appliquer, so I probably will only do the pieced blocks, but it looks like fun :)
Thank you Amy and all the contributers, one of which is Ms. Pat :)
I've never done a BOM before, so we'll see how it goes. I'm hoping it will help me get my sewing mojo back.
Here on the Ridge, we've been getting a lot of rain. We really need it, so it's a good thing. It's too warm this time of year here in upper California to get snow, unless you are up above 4 or 5,000 ft.... except for occassionaly we'll get a little bit, just enough to look pretty then it melts.
Have a great day.
Linking up with Lorna. Thanks Lorna!
