Just a little update to show you where I am at with things....
This is the Chain of Faith Quilt by Moda that I am working on for my neice's wedding. I am half done...woohoo!! In the original pattern sample they ussed a red floral for the "chain". I didn't think it stood out so well so I decided to use a solid red and I am glad I did! Next post should be a completed top!
Coxcomb Medallion Update --A dozen 3.5" pinwheel blocks, a dozen 3.5" four patch blocks (they are kind of hiding under the pinwheels) and 2 Sampler Blocks.....month 3 done!! Now to get going on month 4 and have it finished before the 15th of June!!
Little 3" Rail Blocks.
So I was cruising through blogs the other day and came across a post with a picture of the new American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine. Have you seen it? Are you lucky enough to already have it in your hands? Not me :( In Canada magazines seem to come out 2 weeks later than in the states.....whats with that?! Anyhow the Quilt on the front caught my eye and I knew I had to make it.....a little tough without the magazine and instructions though!! Soooo to calm my stitchy fingers until I get my hands on the magazine, I dug into my scraps from my Courthouse Steps Quilt. Many, many 1" strips, and started sewing them together, and these tiny little blocks are the end result. I am thinking they will make a nice little table topper with an applique vine/leaf border......another work in progress!!
The wind is blowing like crazy here so it was a good day to stay inside and stitch. Tomorrow and Sunday are supposed to be sunny and warm, so outside I will be. I have tons of annuals to plant and many weeds to pick!
On another note, my oldest daughter is over in Europe travelling around and staying in Hostels. She is having a great time by the sounds of it. She has a blog to keep everyone posted. A little scary right now though with the E-coli scare in Europe. I have asked her to PLEASE don't eat raw veggies. From what I have heard they still aren't sure where it is the E-coli is coming from....scary for everyone in Europe I am sure. Hopefully they find the source soon.
Happy Stitching everyone,
