Country Colors . . .

My backing and border fabric arrived on Monday from Sugar House Quilt Shop in New Hampshire. What great service!

This weekend I'll be able to get my "Life" quilt the next step closer to completion. How far? We'll just have to see.

I finished the "BIG" block of the Summer Baskets II BOM. That took some maneuvering to get those wool pieces sewn down, but I think it was worth it. This is my favorite block so far I think. Two more months of blocks and then the borders, which are also appliqued.

I'm going to like this quilt when it's done . . . it's got a bit of that folksy, country thing going on and I'm really enjoying working with the wool. I have even started a little wool scrap bin . . . ehm . . . what could I make with those?

'til next time,

P.S. For anyone wondering . . . the interview date and time have not yet been set. Still waiting to hear!
