done--for real this time
Back to scrounging around in the fabric bins to make two more in two different color ways. I just barely managed to squeeze out what I needed for the background WOW; one had to be seamed. Any more than that and it would not have been possibly without more than one seam. Really, it didn't take all that long to pull, press, cut, sew, baste down and then blanket stitch but it did delay the celebration till this morning. I delayed walking till I got the last one done and the package readied for mailing on my way into town. (The color of the blocks is a tad off in these pictures as I have a flourescent type bulb in the desk lamp. )
The pink/rosy blocks use mostly Peppermint and Sassafras double pinks from Judie Rothermel line from Marcus Brothers about '94. I know this because I made my niece's Indiana Puzzle with those and had included little snippets in her baby shower card. The moon shape is a Hoffman though. The blues--mainly Smithsonian reproductions of the "Groom's Quilt" with a couple of recently acquired repros that I thought I might use for Gary's row robin, Maybe Wyndham Fabrics? I know a few pieces of the greens are from that line and again from the Smithsonian prints with a blade of Debbie Mumm and the stripe from a SW basket line coordinated, maybe from Springs---guess I should have turned that moon so the strips when the direction of the blades but it's too late now.
The teals are a mix of the yardage I am hoarding from the quilt shop that is now closed but I think that blade on the bottom is some that my mom shared with me. Peach block is one that I had to cut and prep last night---just stash pieces except for that moon--that was a scrap left from something one of the Belles had made. It is a little light in comparison to the others but I thought it a better choice than bright orange stuff. A little of that goes a long way.
What you will find me doing till our next meeting 5/8---the ones on the armoire are to be quilted including a top I am supposed to mark with Baptist Fans for Theramae. The ones on the hamper are finished but there is no room in my closet---I need to call Linda S and get those over to her house. Wednesday is already shot as I have a nursing CEU seminar to go to--keep my license active even if I don't really want to practice. I keep busy enough at home, thank you very much. Catch you later----------
