Last weekend I was able to make a small bit of headway with some of my projects and it feels sooooooooooo good!
First off though – there was the Friday mail which just happened to be the wonderful Martinique collection by 3 Sisters – gorgeous colors. Another little stack of fat quarters to add to the ever growing collection that is just begging to be cut into.
I finished the last bit of sewing on the first block in the Home Sweet Home (self-imposed BOM) by Blackbird Designs – these blocks are huge.
Finally decided to use this little block for an exchange that is going on . . . love those pumpkins - final reveal in May!
Also finally made a decision as to what fabric I was going to use for the Autumn Houses BOM (also self-imposed). It seemed so obvious once I had made the decision.
I now have four blocks already planned out and various pieces traced and cut – I love the Bunny Hill patterns! Also have all the Snowbound blocks from Bunny Hill at the final embroidery stage so I’m feeling pretty good about that also.
I was also able to get two PhD (see side bar) quilts spray basted and I’m ready to start quilting them. All in all it’s been a very productive weekend and few days around this house. Things will all come to an end this weekend – heading to the big City again for four days of convention, so other taking along some handwork or sketching materials for the evening, there won’t be much productive stuff happening.
Newsflash! - I just discovered the “Cutting Corners College” over at Riley Blake Designs and wanted to let everyone know about this fabric company – it’s new to me . . . may have been around for quite some time and I’m just now discovering it!
If you click on the Riley Blake logo at the top of the page will take you to their home page where you will also find a tab called notions that has a link to some of their free quilt patterns – also worth a look.
Also check out their fabric lines – there are some really nice collections in there that I’ll have to watch for.
Enjoy your day,
