The Saturday sewing time at the library was loads of fun, about 12 ladies turned up for the mystery. Hmm I wish I'd used fabrics that I had more of so I could have increased the size of the quilt when I got home. So instead I'll just add a couple of borders and use it as a little table topper.
This Thursday through to Sunday the quilt guild has a quilt camp. Somewhat like a retreat, the only difference is you don't sleep over, each person comes home at night. Probably because it's only 15 minutes away. I've decided I'll go along to that on the Friday and Saturday and see if I can get some concentrated work done on some of the ufo's....lol.... The other added bonus is there will be a vendor there with loads of discounted fabrics. Not sure my "sweetie" is too happy about that part of the weekend.....but I'm sure it will be fun. Pot Luck lunch and dinner, so I need to put my thinking cap on and come up with something that perhaps they haven't tried before.
Thank you for all your lovely encouraging words on my new embroidery blocks. Some of you asked if I was going to make the pattern available for sale once it was finished. To be honest I hadn't even thought about that until you asked. I've looked into copyright and have decided to take the plunge, so wish me luck, in the hopes I don't fall flat on my face.....lol.... This leads to a challenge for you all, the name of the quilt. All the blocks are based on 1Corinthians 13 verses 4 through 8, and sprinkled in with theses blocks that have already been designed, will be some embroidered quilting blocks. These blocks will be surrounded with pieced blocks using the Urban Indigo fabrics. The challenge is, come up with a name for the quilt that's appropiate and if I use your choice of name, then once the pattern is written up, you'll receive a free copy.
Happy Stitching, and thank you for stopping by to visit with me.
