I finally got started on another block for When The Wind Blows by Blackbird Designs It is the Holly Block. I've auditioned numerous fabrics on this block and have had to reject them after they are cut. It just didn't look right. I've got 3 more stems to press and then I can start applying everything. This is block # 7 (although #5, the center, hasn't been made yet). This block goes in the lower left.
Still working every afternoon on Sweet Land of Liberty. I've been surprised that I can work on this all afternoon and my wrist doesn't hurt. Now, if I put this in the frames and start quilting on it, I would only last about 90 minutes. I think there is more small hoop quilting in my future.
I can't remember if I posted about this or not. It is from the pattern "Plaidish" by Kitchen Table Quilting. The free pattern is here. It was such a fun little quilt to make. I learned a lot about value in this quilt. There are pieces that I considered light that were probably medium etc.
I also found another free pattern that I am anxious to make. It is at Butterfly Threads Quilting/Diane Knott. And you can find that pattern here. I'm sure most of you have seen these patterns already but they are new to me and I really like them.
We had a very cool night last night. September usually teases me into thinking summer is gone and then just when I am convinced, it gets hot again. So we'll see how this plays out this year.
