...and a very good weekend it was. When I told Andy that Saturday was National Quilting Day, he got kind of a puzzled look on his face...when I asked him about it, his response was "Isn't everyday quilting day for you?" Well I guess he has a point, I do get to sew most days, but this was a National holiday...so I celebrated. My machine was running all day yesterday and a good bit today...as I said, a very good weekend it was.
I started with my Fat Quarter Shop Designer BOM block......once again this was a fun, fun block to do and went together perfectly...gotta love when that happens.
Then I did my Civil War Row for this month from the Temecula Quilt Company...this was the second month so I did the star row this weekend and attached it to the top row. This one also went together perfectly and they are doing a great job with this BOM. It's done with the Civil War Chronicles fabric by Judie Rothermel...they include a picture of the row they did so we can see exactly where the fabric goes...and there's plenty of fabric...makes me very happy.
This project has a fun story...when I was at the retreat at the beach with my friends back in February Beth was sitting across the table from me working on the blocks of this quilt...I told her how very much I loved these blocks. We all went to bed that night and in the morning Beth came upstairs and said that that project just wasn't making her happy and it was all mine...OMG, I almost danced on the table, now that would have been a sight first thing in the morning. She's always been a very traditional quilter and was ready to try something new...stop over at her new blog...see what she's up to...she's having a blast...and so am I...I started getting some rows together on Thursday last week and then today did a bunch more...this is just a bit over half of the quilt......I LOVE it! The pattern is Second Hand Clothes by Bonnie Blue Quilts...fun and easy!
The last thing I did came about after I did my morning blog reading...you know how you go to your regulars and then click and click and click again and end up at a brand new blog...well I ended up at Beth's (another Beth) blog...she's putting quilts together for Japan from donated blocks. The pattern is quick and easy, just a double 4 patch. I did 2 in less than half an hour...I forgot to take a picture and I already have my envelope sealed...but if you go over to Minnick & Simpson's blog you'll see the blocks that Laurie did today. Great project! Thank you Beth for allowing us to help.
I think that does it for my weekend...it was a good one! Happy Spring!
