So we are are at -1....can I keep it going this way?
I am trying to get back on track with this accountability and am already several weeks behind.
And this is just where you saw it last. Some block testing and projects other than quilting has occupied my time. Winter Retreat will be this Thursday thru Sunday and hopefully, lots more to report next time.
We did present the quilts for the family for the Habitat for Humanity house. Mary, our President and two others, holding the parent's quilt.
This is based on a quilt by Becky Wright, The Civil War Quilter, called Jacob's Cot Quilt. She did a Trunk Show and Workshop for us in 2012. We all loved the block and just about everyone in the guild contributed a block. The sashing was from my stash and another member quilted it.
One for the oldest daughter.
One for the middle son.
..and for the youngest son.
I have been working on The Farmer's Wife Pony Club Swap with a Facebook Group. These are the hardest blocks I have ever done. I did an original Farmer's Wife Quilt and loved it. These blocks finish at 8 inches and there are less of them, so I thought they would be easier....not. Here is January's minus mine because I used up all the fabric I had with redoing them that I will be using something similar but not the same. In my group, we make 7, send 6 and we receive 6 each month. These were paper pieced.
And finally, doing Pat Sloan's Vacation Time Mystery BOM Quilt . Wasn't gonna, didn't have time, did not need another sampler type quilt.....but when I saw the block, just no resolve in me and it will all come from stash!
The background is actually a dark plum. Who can resist a star, not me!
