After working all weekend, I decided that after the housework was completed, I had earned a sew day! After all, it is raining and I can't work outside...so here I went! I completed a dozen spool blocks...and I officially love them! Many bloggers are doing these, and I made mine 3 inches finished. They are so cute and little! I will have to get one of you to look at my final layout, as I see one block is turned wrong. Good thing the blocks are not sewn together yet.
I finished the hand quilting on the folklore quilt.
But the biggest news is that I received a quilt back from Darcie!!! She is the most wonderful quilter...I love the day when I get a quilt back from her. This was the quilt I attempted to machine quilt and made a botch of it, and all of the blocks were made by friends at the hospital where I work. I love it, and have the binding on, just waiting for a moment to hand stitch it down...or several moments!
Here is a picture of the texture...she does all her quilting free hand, no pantographs, just a dance across the quilt.
Hmmm, does anyone know the name of this block? I cut out 20 of them...all in plaids for the main fabric. Some pretty BRIGHT plaids!! Should be fun to see how they come out. A great friend in Arizona has identical plaids to these.
Does size matter?? Hee! I made a tiny little quilt...out of leftover 1/2 square triangles. Precise it's not, but fun...it is!!!
Hope each of you has a wonderful day!
