Well I said last post that I would show you the sewing I did last week .....
First up is my "Almost Baltimore"
Almost because the other members of my group all did 9 blocks 'cept me I did 5 mainly 'cos I wanted it done in this lifetime !!! plus the other blocks leave plenty of space for handquilting...:)
Next I put together some applique blocks that I completed in 2007
They are from Kim Diehls book " Simple Blessings ".....
Close up of one of the blocks..
When we went to Carrickalinga we went to Kirkbride Quilts in Strathalbyn...where I added to my stash of Kansas Troubles material...I have been collecting it over quite a few years I like the fact that each collection is a different pattern but the same colours so it all goes together I brought 2 charm packs of Vine Creek which I made into a disappearing nine-patch
I have meterage of Seeds of Time...Meadow Waltz...& Aunt Purdys Parlour..so will use one for a border
I also made myself a pinboard
Today was my day off...so I made the most of it ...I have sandwiched the baby quilt so I can get on with quilting it..
I tidied my shelves in the sewing room
and I lined a wicker basket so I can store my wool in it without it catching...plus it looks cute.
So tea is cooking...Dahl & rice....its raining & freezing outside so its pj's on ....heater on...stitching & tv tonight...hope you all have a great weekend
