Are you ready....?!?! I've been busy....!

Gosh, did I ever accomplish a lot this past week. Not only have I been productive on the quilting front, but I also took pictures.

You know, for a while there I had a glimpse of what it must feel like to be Darlene from Quilting Daze. LOL ;o) She is sooooo productive, it's amazing the quilts she accomplishes.

So.... are you ready.... here goes!

Block 2 - Attributed to Amelia Jenks Bloomer (1818-1894)



Block 3 - Mary Church Terrell (1863-1954)



Block 4 - Julia Ward Howe (1819-1910)



Block 5 - Jane Addams (1860- )



Block 6 - Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902)



Block 7 - Sojourner Truth (1797-1883)



Block 8 - Lucretia Mott (1793- )



Block 9 - Frances Perkins (1880 - )



Block 10 - Fanny Jackson Coppin (1837 - 1913)



Block 11 - Susan B. Anthony ((1820 - 1906)



I finished machine appliqueing the last one Wednesday evening.

As for block 12, I'm waiting to hear from Kansas City Star. Seems there are 2 (two) fabrics that are not used in the quilt and I'm wondering where they go. Perhaps they belong to block 12.

So, I put the blocks away! I do need a break, and am now working on another project. I have a need to do a quick project in between long ones, other wise I get bored with it. Do any of you feel the need to break in between large projects? I'm just curious!

Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!

What wonderful blocks! That is going to be one beautiful quilt. I always have more than one thing going on at a time. Short attention span I guess.

Julia said...

This is going to be absolutely stunning! Do you have any info on where I can get it? Or can I order i from you? You really need to set up an online store, so that we can join in with you on all of the fun! :~)

I love those blocks! Just great.

And YES, I do feel the same way - I find that I need to take breaks from larger projects and enjoy a couple quickies to get my mojo back sometimes.

I flit. I'm a flitter.

carole your blocks are gorgeous! love the pattern as well. I usually am working on 3-4 projects and then doing quickies inbetween...you are right feeling like you got something done inbetween helps you move on with those never ending projects even binding...LOL
