(beware ---- long post)
Darlene is busy taking care of all the curve balls and feels that she needs to take a blogging break - well, we can't let her blog just sit.
We can't just let this blog sit - let's find a project for her to work on - we must show the world - come on, Joy, hold the blocks; no, you hold them; she's not going to be happy with us; does "Wabbit Stew" ring a bell with anyone; who's going to protect us from her (maybe her sweet hubby - he likes us, doesn't he?). Oh my goodness, I can't believe we're doing this - we're going to be in so much trouble - SIGH!!!!! Whose idea is this any way????
I was reading her e-mails last night and she's committed on Charming Girls Quilt Club Blog
to finishing an older UFO so let's put this one out and "commit" her to finishing it. teehee! Let's make this official - snicker -
Darlene is going to finish "1930's Black & White" by Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet by the end of July
It's really a cute project and I remember when she started it.
Oh my goodness she has to finish this project; it's really, really cute; and remember when she searched high and low for this pattern. Let's share the story (as we remember it)
This pattern is "1930's Black & White" by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet
. Darlene saw a picture of the quilt on somone's webshots album and couldn't get a response from the owner of the album. She knew it was by Lori Holt but had no other information, so she Googled Lori's name and found that a quilt shop in Utah might carry the pattern. Excitedly she called and was told that they carried other patterns by Lori Holt but not this particular one but would get it for Darlene. Darlene waited several days - NOTHING! I think she called Lori at home and found that Material Girls might carry the pattern so she called Nadine - - POOF in a matter of days Darlene had the pattern in her possession. She was a very happy girl and started searching for the fabric (especially the black and white prints) and made the black and white nine patches
in no time (quick like a bunny
- teehee). Then she started working on the blocks but needed a good variety of 1930's solids - ordered those from someone on the web - made four blocks and then the project sat. Huge Sigh!!!!
We're going to put the project box by her sewing machine and hopefully she'll take our BIG hint! LOL I think she'll be so excited, she'll forget about our antics and get busy sewing. LOL
