AH--the Dresden Plate quilt I am making! It is machine pieced and hand pieced and appliquéd. It will be hand-quilted 4 blocks at a time. There will be 110 blocks and 1320 mostly different scrappy petals. A friend is teaching me this as part of hand appliqué lessons. She says this is a good place to start--no matter- as you can see by my work thus far, it is addicting. I have made 78 plates in 1 1/2 weeks, and I have 35 centers done, all ready for their blocks--THAT part will be time consuming.
The Moose Mats are an extra project within the Thimbleberries club. the project for the month was to make two border strips--so no pic of those--no big deal. THE BIGGEST deal was completing my LOG CABIN quilt top--sorry no pic--it has been mailed to my friend in Idaho for quilting. Hang tight--you will get to see it completed before the Summer is out! I am not a pink person but the reproduction fabric screamed of log cabin so that is what it became. I am delighted with it!
currently, now that that project is out of my room, I am crazy quilting a Summer block for a swap and I am working on a purple RR that I wish I could keep! hehehe. beat me up--I have not crocheted in about 2 weeks now. just about the time I began the Dresden Plate quilt! I guess I have my priorities!
The monsoon season is upon us and I dont get to play much in the afternoons but that is ok--I have my hand works that I can do sitting anywhere. It has been nice enough in the am to walk and cool enough in the later afternoon to take the girls out for a walk.
I was all excited--we had a good 80% chance of rain today and so far, nothing. I love to watch the storms come in, smell the air after and relax! So, till it comes in today, I will pacify myself on the couch with appliquéing!
