Since I thought decorating for Easter with diary blocks wasn't such a great idea, I decided to stop and take a break from washing, ironing, and cutting. I'll get back to it after lunch and have some blocks to show later or tomorrow. Friday morning I quickly got all my chores done and started pulling fabrics for a new quilt. Once I ate lunch I was all ready to start sewing.Easter Eggs by Cheri Payne with a few changes by me. In fact although it's the same quilt I did mine without the pattern so I used measurements that worked for me, but it's the same size as Cheri's. Got the quilt top finished Friday and then decided to go ahead and quilt it before adding the wool embellishments yesterday. I finished it up last night and it's on the wall.
I have another idea for a quick top, so I'm about the clean off the design wall and start laying out scraps and nickel scrap pieces. Before I did that, Kathie asked what was on our boards currently. Oh loads of stuff!
On the left side...four blocks from Lori Smith that will eventually get added to a orphan quilt because I will never finish the original quilt. A dresden plate block to remind me that I never got started on the BOM quilt and have the whole thing to do one day. The tumbler picture so I can sew that top together one day soon. The second block of the 4 seasons quilt that needs it's pieced parts added. The bottom panel of the Christmas Sampler yet to be finished. My civil war diary blocks so far...and that's about it at the moment.
Kathie has also listed her projects for the month and since I had my own tablet from Reproductions, Ltd and a list I thought I'd copy mine over all nice so you can take a peek at what I plan to tackle this month. Lots of blocks and keeping up with current BOM's.
Now, since during the winter months it can get dreary, we all need a little sunshine to pop up and arrive in the mail now and then, here's mine! Yes, another Annie. She's wearing one of my favorite polka dot prints and that button is just to die for. Can't beat that smile for a quick dose of happy every time I walk by her. Have fun sewing and creating! I know I will.
