Marilyn had called me last night to see if she could possibly work out a swap with me for some "green" fabric. She is doing that Sentimental Journey 2010 BOM from Block Central with the JOY group. Lovely quilt, huh? But her version will use a lovely pink floral as the focus piece and I think greens, burgundies rather than reds and browns. What would I want in exchange? she asked. I knew she had a bolt of backing fabric at the meeting on Tuesday and said a yard of that would be fine provided I had something that would work. She and her mom would be over across the lane getting their hair cut at our mutual hair dresser's shop. I was not planning on going anywhere as I ran my errands yesterday.
When you are pressed for storage space, you have to stack things and maybe move two or three things to get at what you want. Look what was on top of my pizza box of completed BOM blocks! I made this originally for someone's fall row robin and then didn't use it after all for some reason that I do not recall at the moment. I have to stick this in my row quilt somewhere----or make another, just a bit smaller I know I don't have anymore of that purple fabric if I have to blend it in.
Seasoned Quilter". Looks like she still has it on the website thought in the last chance section. As you can see, the figure is holding small themed blocks that you velcro on. Actually I almost started on this pattern as my yearly calendar type project but then decided to do the Button Ups instead. I'm still not "done" and will be starting into year 3 with those, come January. I know there are 4 more I want to do and two of them are from a Joined at the Hip book. I just need to bump up the width and they will work perfectly on my Button Up base. One of these days I am going to do that "Seasoned Quilter" as I think it is just too, too cute!
And sew it goes--------
