The winner of my box of scraps is Beth C, anonymously chosen by my Random Generator Husband! Let me know your address and it will be on its way to you! Now I'll start another one!!
Don't really have much to write about.....no photos ready....but....
this is a Nine Patch quilt that I started quite a while ago, using Julie Herndrickson's "History Repeated" fabrics (browns, blues and shirtings). Her project sheet used sashing but I prefer alternating blocks. Then it seemed too boring so I decided to brighten it up with any alternating fabric I liked (it is very hard for me to make a quilt from just one line of fabric!) and then I further decided to make other pieced or applique blocks to place here and there! Eight rows are done with 5 to go. Think I'll draw a 6" Schoolhouse block and make a 6" Russian Sunflower block with Cindy Blackberg's rubber stamp......just making whatever blocks I like as I go along and when I have 13 rows, it will be done!
Part of lovely floral strip from the Women of Courage line!
Nice reproduction of an early 1800's Eagle in a Wreath!
Nice Prussian blue from Kaye England!
Can't remember why I made this Love Apple....probably just because I love it!
A bird scrap from Kaye England....too small so I just bordered it.
Eight Point Stars are a favorite to hand-piece.
A colorful toile from Judy Rothermel (I think) from many years ago.
A little sample of broderie perse.....
Thirty-six Patch block.
Love cockscomb flower....livened up a bit with applique broderie perse element.
From the 19th Century Divas book.....Pine tree
Another little touch of broderie perse with a French General fabric.
A few fabrics selected to be used as alternating blocks as I go along...it's really fun to just do whatever I feel like doing at the time! Will be interesting when it is done.........do not have a design wall so there is no "plan".........
Another batch of about 80 log cabin blocks that I work on now and then when I just feel like sewing! I think I am more than halfway to my goal of 400!
Back later with some more This and That that I've been working on........it is so funny that when I have some Time to work on something, I can't decide What to work on! I stand in my sewing room and look around at all the unfinished projects.......should vow to start nothing new until at least a few UFO's are done, but I am not that disciplined! In fact, I started a new little quilt last Sunday......will be done soon as soon as I find 20 minutes to do it!
