Starting two new projects that have been on my mind!!
This block is from Jeni Gaston's quilt along. It is called the Happy Garden Mystery. You can find the files below, and it is on Facebook. It combines piecing and applique, and I have chosen wool to make the blocks. Four blocks are released so far.
Also, Cheri Payne had a quilt along, "So Spooky". I decided to do this one too. You can find the blocks here, on Facebook: I think I might change that little mouth, to make it a teensy bit scarier!! There is no pumpkin face on the original pattern, but I wanted one...it reminds me of the pumpkins I used to carve with my precious son.
I hatched a plan over the weekend to finish some quilts that have been in the works, and also planned some patients quilts to make from my stash. I feel really good about thinking this all through, pulling fabrics and ideas together. Now I just need three solid months with no interruptions from work, meals or house cleaning to accomplish it all. Anyone know where I can get that? Haha!!!
A lady at work said she wanted a pink quilt...she has had breast cancer twice...yep! I will be sure she gets one!! In fact, I have one already made...so off it will go to her. That feels just exactly right!! Thank you, each of you, for your advice and heart felt wisdom about my feelings last post...thank you!
Hugs to all! Happy Monday!!
