Are you sitting down? Last weekend I turned on my sewing machine and actually worked on a quilt. That's right ... You heard it here first! LOL
Back in the Fibre Junction days, I hosted historical clubs. It was a gathering about The History of Women via the Needle and Thread and used Pam Buda's Prairie Women Sewing Circle (PWSC) club packets for the projects.
There was a project in PWSC 2 Gathering 5 that I loved and had actually started cutting on August 25, 2012. The only piecing that was done were the flying geese and they still needed trimming. I love that quilt/pattern and had been meaning to finish it.
It's quite a challenge to pick up a project where you left off after so many years and more so if it has a gazillion pieces. I started by organizing the pieces. I needed to figure out what I had and perhaps what was needed to construct the block.
Once I figured it all out ... I started piecing and of course .... I was missing one block! lol Thank goodness for my stash!
After hours and hours of piecing, I finally I had a finish .... Voila!
Hum ... The photograph really doesn't do it justice. It's a pretty pink and brown quilt. The pattern is called Next Door Neighbor and measures 27 1/2 x 34 1/2.
I even have a Make-do in that quilt. I do love to make-do ... it gets me thinking outside of the box ... why run to the store or cut a large piece of fabric just for a few pieces. I enjoy using my scraps and I had just enough of a scrap piece for this block. Besides, it just adds to the story of the quilt .... I love stories don't you?
Now .... if I can only get Penelope turned on .....
Thanks for stopping by. Catch you all later! Cheers!
Oh my goodness me..... Lucky I was sitting down.... To much shock for a person ..... Oh well guess you at least know it works still now you need to make a churn dash quilt ....
Great job! It’s nice to see you quilting again.
Oh, isn't Chooky funny? ;)
I have 5 of those packets of Pam's patterns, including that one. It is a very pretty quilt, Carole. I love the historical pinks and browns together. Kudos to you for pulling out this UFO and pushing through to get it pieced.
I love the "make do" as well, and Pam is a big proponent of it. Those blocks can't be very big, to fit in that finished size!
