This time of year, spare time is a rare commodity. But I still managed to find the time to finish this block from Sue Garman’s “Friends of Baltimore”.
And here is a close up.
My Sunday Afternoon Group meets the third Sunday of every month so that means we meet this Sunday….already! Every year we begin a new project so I offered to design next year’s quilt. Here is a preview of the first block. They haven’t seen it yet, so mum’s the word!
I am taking the plunge and using my collection of batiks. (I’ve never really used batiks but somehow I ended up with an amazing batik collection!!) So far, I love them! The colours are so vibrant and saturated. The best part is the fabric does not fray. I am now an OFB… Official Fan of Batiks!
I pre-washed every last one of them…
…and Bruin found yet another (!) cat bed!
I have started the next block of The Civil War Bride. First, I stitched some branches and some leaves..
I used every inch of the branch fabric!
The tail feathers have me very intrigued! They seem to fit together like a puzzle. I love puzzles!
And here are the tail feathers just waiting to be stitched!
Til next time…
