Wow..... August already!

I do hope that everyone is having a wonderful summer. Here, it has been buzzing with activities.

On the quilting front, I had to put Market Day on hold due to a discrepancy in the pattern instructions. The cutting instruction and the template were off by 1/4 inch. Hum... which one is right?

I did check on their web site, Oops section, for possible corrections, but it wasn't mentioned. Strange, the book has been published for quite some time. So, I wrote to the designer Terri for clarification.

Note: Terri did write back, and the template is the correct measurement. She will post the corrections on her web site.

Until I receive an answer ........

I started a new machine applique project called Sprig Rose, designed by Lorraine Hofmann.

I belong to a Primitive Folk Art group and this is one of the projects that the group is working on. This happens to be part of the center block.

On the long arm front, I loaded Pine Tree Grove. I started machine quilting this quilt on my DSM. It's been sitting in my quilting closet, waiting for me to pick it up again. Yesterday, I had the "bright?!?!" idea of completing it on the longarm. I haven't done anything except stare at it.

You know how they say that you "shouldn't" switch machines in between piecing a quilt, well I wonder if this applies to machine quilting. So, until I feel confident that I'm doing the "right" thing, I'll just continue staring at it! lol

The blocks are basted and some of the sashing has been quilted. It's the setting triangles and borders that bother me. Oh well, I'll continue to think about it! lol

I'm off to quilt! Have a great day every one. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Stop staring and get to quilting! Remember that sometimes "done" is perfect.

Go for it. You could stare at it for months and not do anything.
You could always rip out anything you don't like.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Glad that you got a quick response from your question. That is always so frustrating.

Hope the quilting goes smoothly.

Are you still staring? There is no need you can do it.
