Before I tell you about my National Quilting week end I need to tell you about my sweet hubby. Friday evening he asked if I planned to sew on Saturday and if so did I need anything i.e. thread. I told him that I did intend to spend most of the day in my sewing haven; in turn he told me to play as much as I wanted and not to fret about dinner and such. His mom, Dru (may she rest in peace) raised this wonderful man - thank you, Mom!
I exercised on National Quilting Day - no not THAT kind of exercise - my prerogative! teehee! I couldn't decide what to do with the piles of fabric I showed you on Friday so I checked my closet yet again and found a huge pile of Moda's Gingham Rose fabric - I had yardage for background, border fabric, fat quarters, etc. I pulled my Frosted Squares pattern by The Pattern Basket and cut my own Layer Cake (10" squares) and got busy! Saturday I got 25 of the required 30 blocks done - woohoo!
Sunday morning I was back in my sewing haven and at the end of the day (10:00PM) I had the quilt top assembled (well, all but the top and bottom borders). I'll show you the entire quilt top after I add the top & bottom borders.
This quilt reminds me of something I'd find in an old trunk - I LOVE it so much and plan to quilt it very, very soon.
I really enjoyed working with an older line of fabric so stay tuned because I'm planning to use more the stash.
I appreciate your visit - please come again very soon.
