I just love this block! It is one of the StarBurst blocks for Melissa's QAL. You can still join in - she has the project into nice doable steps, but I have a furry who wants to keep playing and napping in all my pieces - so I am working ahead of the schedule. I am using Moda's 'Little Black Dress'.
A bit of hand work almost done. This is for Sarah's Quilt Ministry - she asked those who have donated fabrics , threads, batting, blocks, and quilts for a hand block for a special quilt. They are nearing 500 quilts gifted on and this will be a commerative piece for the occasion. I need to get this done and out in Tuesday's mail.
The cross-stitch piece is done. I changed the bootery shop into a quilt shop. Hey - quilts, stitchery, and a bakery - what's not to love? Now I need to fabric frame this piece and have my Christmas Thru the Year project done.
I really have other things to do, but side tracked with a new block. Found this lovely piece of grey yardage, some left over Kona Snow jelly roll and that wonderful 2.5" pre-cut scrap barrel came out to play. Not sure how far I will play with this.
The new cute button is on the side bar for this project - 'Country Charmer' pattern by Lynn Wilder of Sew'nWildOaks. She is posting wonderful tips for us along the way - gosh, you can't go wrong with a FREE class from this pattern designer! And Lesley of The Cuddle Quilter will be keeping a schedule of monthly plans - put it is a work on as you can, no pressure, just relax, have fun, learn along the way, don't be afraid to ask questions Quilt Along.
And please check out the button on the side bar - a great way to advertise and promote your local quilt shop. I am heading out to mine for some photos so I can link them up.
And as a closing thought and so you can get your 'dot' on - January 22 is National Polka Dot Day. Gosh, wouldn't it be fun to see dots all over blogland - so get your dot on bloggers!
