Fragmentation of efforts!! But lots of fun!
Here I am, on the applique vines...the "Goose Vines" quilt! Thanks, Victoria for the name!! Thanks, Kathy, for the idea! And thank you so much, each one of you, for sharing your expertise and ideas with me, for my quilts...each of you is so much appreciated!! Leaves in my world I guess...are not just green and brown...but all colors!! It makes it more fun, I think...purple and pink leaves too, LOL!! These are starched edged, turned under, and will be ready to applique when the vines are done...which they are not. I am working on them at night, as dear husband watches the news. I sit on the floor and applique! And try to ignore the politics, and world strife, and dept ceiling news, and government shutdown stuff. Seems like I hear so much of this stuff, and not enough good stuff! How about you??
All the vines are prepared and pinned into place.
Rosie is OK with it...she likes it so far. Whew!!
You know I could not stay away from the sewing machine long, so I am making little string rectangles to go with the flying geese sashings I started a few posts ago. I love this stuff!! I use every little string I have, and love, love, love using them!!
I got my pattern!! This is one I saw on Pinterest, and tracked down the designer, and ordered the pattern.
Here is where I am so far. Not exactly following the pattern, but just using little blocks that I had in the orphan bin. I love it! My blocks are 12 inches finished, and now I have the pattern for more ideas for the blocks. Love it!! I just really like that the designer used so many plaids, hers is just yummy!
Everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful day!!!
