I did my cutting for my 30's sampler yesterday and began stitching. While I had the WOW out, I cut the alternating squares and borders for Gail's memorial heart quilt that will be assembled in the coming week--good thinking, huh? 3 rows or half the quilt is joined so far. When I told DJ that I was working on something just for me, he said "you won't keep it" OH, yes I will--it goes on MY bed and it is made with my favorite fabrics, I responded. His reply? "What is wrong with the quilt you have?" Nothing, says I but it is not one that I have made all by myself. Current quilt is a bowtie top that I bought, shifted the blocks around to fit my bed and quilted. I COULD have said "which quilt?", for that matter, but the point was that I did not make it start to finish.
(Looks like he is starting the laundry so I have a couple minutes reprieve--gotta love it.
So, some more block pictures--a good many of these were for the Pioneer Sampler but Rolling Stone was a Belles BOM as was Prairie Queen (gotta have a block with that name being from ILLINOIS!). I love that Dandy simple and effective--also one I chose for the quilt group: Aunt Dinah and Propeller, too. I actually like the Propeller smaller as the pattern showed on one of the Connecting Threads catalog--the pdf pattern should still be available online in their free pattern sections. Last two, tomorrow.
There we go--what I knew was coming. Best get dressed and get moving before it gets too hot and sticky------
