STAYING BUSY





have to--it is too hot to go out! I finished 72 log cabin blocks for my quilt! Now, I try to figure out what setting I want..




not sure what I am looking for at the moment but I have plenty of resources... and of course, my girls love to get their picture taken so i
couldnt leave them out.




on the left here is a very small Dresden plate. This is a project a friend is teaching me..It is 1/2 hand pieced and 1/2 machine and hand appliqu├ęd. I wish to make a queen sized quilt--sooo we are guessing, that I might need about a whole big group of petals. I have about 300 so far -only since Monday-they are addicting.- I made this one block so I could see how it was going to come out!

I have also been working on Dear Jane --these were made using scraps from my log cabin blocks and I recently received a bunch of reproduction strips to make more blocks...

I am also designing another doily, working on some placemats for Thimbleberries monthly project and well, I am Wippy, so I am sure I am not mentioning everything because folks would think I never clean! hehehe..Laundry is calling me...byeeee

WOW on the log cabin blocks--they are wonderful. Can't wait to see how you place them. I love log cabin. Didn't you enjoy the process? Dear Jane I am not crazy over. The dresden plate is gorgeous. Cute dogs too. You are so busy and lucky you, but the weather keeps you inside I am sure.

I love all of your blocks! You have certainly been busy! I only have 8 Dear Jane blocks finished, but I am currently working on the Civil War Diary quilt. I love it and I just love using the reproduction fabrics.

Hugs to the furbabies.
