Oh Yea. The sun has given me the push I needed to start doing some sewing. I started working on the blocks I was hand piecing for a quilt for my mom. I haven't done anything on these blocks since about Thanksgiving. I had seen these fabrics on clearance on one of my favorite internet sites, and bought them thinking they would make a great quilt someday. I'm so pleased with how the quilt blocks look.
These are six of the blocks I have finished. The block at the center left is called "stamp baskets". I get a lot of my blocks from Quilter's Cache. It's a really great site with some unique blocks, and there are more blocks than you can imagine. The blocks at the top are Dresden Plate on the left, and a block called Balkan Puzzle which is on the right.
These are the last four blocks which are finished. The sashing has been attached. I still have two blocks to finish. I have Bear Tracks (another block from Quilter's Cache) and Card Trick to finish. Bear Tracks is a Bear Paw variation, and I have one "paw" to finish. Card Trick is cut and marked, and I should start it today. I'm hoping that I can put this together on Tuesday, and get it ready to send to the longarm quilter this weekend. It sure feels good to be working again, and to finish up a project which should have been done long before this. Good thing my mom's a patient woman.
