Progress: one sixth of my owl quilt is sewn together. I want the blocks to not all look alike so I am trying to sash some, not sash some and vary the sashing some.
I worked on this block today but is not complete: I still need to applique down the branches at the corners.
I am beginning to see this beautiful quilt come together and it really gets me excited.
Well, I’m excited until I look up on the wall and see how much there is left to do. I will probably get the two little ones on the top right done this week. Then I will sew those three together and the whole top will be done. Check back next week and see how I do.
Now I am taking the opportunity to share some creativity of my sisters. She has been painting: benches, cabinets, and clothes pins. And she gifted me with these 4. They are painted green and then she decoupaged scrapbook paper on the front of them. Aren’t they pretty? My plan for them is to use them to hold notes on my ongoing projects. I just need to figure out how and where I want them to hang.
It was nice to see one of my receiving blankets being used. I’m sure the he is really enjoying it and has already told his parents how much he loves it.
And because of the new arrival, our cover/header girl has gotten a “big girl” bed. Of course I am happy to see that she, too, will be sleeping under a quilt made by ME. I do love to see my work being loved and used.
Well, that’s all from here. Hope everyone has a great week. I will, as usual, be linking to Patchwork Times. GARI
