like I said, not much to report.
Vicki and I are getting together at her home in Williams really soon. I can't wait!! so I am trying to get things organized to take up there.
So, in saying that, I have squared up 444 3" half square triangles!
that's not all of the half squares, but it is all of the leavings from squaring up! I am proud of that little pile! LOL.....
Over the last couple of years, I have been making the evenings star block in 30's. In fact I love the block so much, I was in a swap with my Thornberries group AND my Scrappy and Happy yahoo group. I haven't counted, buy I know I have A LOT. My plan was, and still is to share with Vicki and make a quilt with it. One of the ladies from the Scrappy and Happy group put hers on point! oh my! I loved it!!!
Didn't Nola do a fantastic job? Now, I need to do some counting and figure out my game plan.....
For several years, I have been working on I done my best blocks. I think I started this one with Cyndi about 4 years ago. Cyndi and I had gone up to Payson for a retreat and saw this quilt. Our hearts started beating fast, I think
the book was no longer available, but Dorothy said she would trace it out onto fabric for us. we had to pay for the fabric. hmmmmm, YES!!!! so I worked hard and finished January through June. I got about half way done with July. and there it sat for a few years. I HAVE JULY DONE!!!!! yeah!!!!
Now that feels good. I have already started August.
Another project I have been working on for several years, is a Dear Jane quilt. I have a friend who has made at least two of these quilts and probably has enough blocks for a couple more. She has been in swaps for years. Those quilts are so beautiful, I love looking at them. So many moons again, I started my Dear Jane with several other people. only not quite the same. I am embroidering the blocks!
I just finished block F-6. I trace one row at a time. I have been trying to as soon as a block is done, I square it up. and sew it into the row. so off I go to do that......
I am on a roll.... Wish me luck....
