a list of all the quilty things I need to accomplish. In the interest of accountability, I plan to keep track of my progress here. So far, I have completed two of the items on my list. The first is this Card Trick block for Leona in the Sew and Bee Happy bee. It looks complicated, but it is a fairly simple 9-patch block. Leona asked for aqua and red, which is great because I have a lot of both on hand.
Along those same lines, I recently made a quilt (to be revealed soon) and used 100% cotton batting. I normally use Warm and Natural or the Poly-fil equivalent, but this 100% cotton was on sale, so I thought I'd try it. I was very surprised at how much it shrunk. I don't normally wash my quilts before I give them away, but I did this time, and wasn't really prepared for so much shrinkage. What do you prefer?
Finally, I have received some lovely blocks recently that I haven't posted. This one was from Anna (Singing Shells) in the Fall Bee. She said it was her first attempt at hexies. Great job, don't you think?
These will both be great additions to my sampler quilt. Thanks ladies!
And now, instead of sewing, I've got to go to work. Of course, I've been sorting squares for my Granny Square blocks, so I'm covered in threads. Oh well.
Have a great day!
