Ice, Inspiration, and Instigation
We are in the middle of an ice storm like so many others and their bad weather - what's a quilter do do? SEW!!! I am 20th bobbin since Monday and even used a spool of thread up - blocks, blocks and more blocks.
And I guilted myself about those borders, so with the help of my assistant (not), I put one one, then made blocks - put another on, then made blocks. I have the last of the five to go, but it seems every time I lay this out, Miss Bella claims it and I get no where. So more blocks, blocks, blocks today.
Temecula Quilt Co is having a QAL with reproducing this antique flying geese quilt - so many geese a month. I need to clear some of my reproduction fabrics that won't be used in Barbara Brackman's "Diary" QAL so this works for me. Besides - I love to make flying geese.
And to instigate some more - this beauty is being offered by Wendy Shepard of Ivory Spring. You could even take a section of this and make a mini if you don't feel up to another big quilt.
I did get out yesterday for a bit (in the pouring rain) to the local library - only like a minute or two from me. They had a fun class on making an Accordion Album. I'm sure due to the weather, I was the only one who showed up. BUT what fun and I have found a project I can share with my grandkids.
I will get new buttons up for Temecula and Wendy soon, and back to my blocks.........
