OK, now I am more than a third done...edging toward 1/2 done! I love math (I know, twisted...), and I love to think about this in mathematical terms. 33% done, 1/3 done, .33 done. Anyway, making progress! I am so enjoying this and every day off I have, I sew a little on it. A lot of cutting has been done ahead of time...so maybe I am 1/2, .50, or 50% done!!
The edge of this blue and yellow flag was supposed to have appliqued flowers...but I changed it to hearts. Just have to be different, I guess! So, there will be eleven hearts incorporated into this quilt...thus the quilt name "Queen of Hearts". I am sure it will change, but that is what breezed through the silly brain today!
I love this applique block, it was my insomnia applique of last night. Love applique, when it is all prepped and ready to go! My pictures are a bit blurry, please forgive that.
I have been cutting through some of the stash, in preparation to use these blocks up in the 4-patch quilt blocks I showed last post. I am really looking forward to this! Should be some fun piecing.
Also, I am hand-quilting Lori's doll quilt. I wanted it to be hand quilted, as a pioneer mother would do in her spare moments for quilting. I love it! Don't you want to make one? Go see Lori at www.humblequilts.blogspot.com. Hers quilts are anything but humble!
My days and weeks are like this...I work for several days, then am off for one or two. So, I get about 4-6 hours of piecing in a week, usually. Closer to the 4 hour mark, I think. I have to catch up on housework, laundry, and errands just like all of you when I am off. I think I need a personal assistant to do all that for me...and one more assistant to go to work for me too. What do you think?? Don't you want that too? :)
One more important thing, that I was going to talk about first!! Lyn at Bluebird quilts is making a lovely quilt for her friend in need. She is asking for nine-patches...sounds like fun! I am sending her a few, maybe you would like to do this too.
Have a wonderful week!!
