Thank you friends on blog land for your lovely comments regarding the newspaper article on Fibre Junction. It has been quite the year, an extremely busy one, yet quite rewarding.
Lots has been going on, I finished machine quilting Coney Island, a pattern by Fig Tree & Company. However, I cannot show it to you until I have sewn the binding on it. That's my motivation to get it done so I can show it to you! I'm anxious to call this one finis!
On the quilting front, I decided to start a new project! Well, I did almost complete one! ;o)
The quilt pattern is called Trick or Treat by Blackbird Designs. It's from their book When the Cold Wind Blows.
These are just a few that I've completed. There are 291 baskets in the quilt. So far I have completed 37 machine appliqued baskets with lots cut out. Just a few more to go! ;o)
I fell in love with this quilt and just had to make it. To quote Alma "Anytime someone tells me to cut 300 of anything, it takes my breath away ... but one look at Barb's quilt and I had to say. 'Let me get my scissors!'" My sentiments exact!
The block are machine appliqued! So, as I prepare the blocks I read a book! ;o)
Yes, it has dawned on me that I do not need to physically sit and read a book. I can have it read to me. What a relief that is! lol I love to read so now I get to do two (2) things I enjoy, read and quilt, at the same time! ;o)
Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week!
