Well I had my finished month for Sweet Land of Liberty I was going to show, and what's on the design board: lots of everything...BUT I got the best box today from my favorite store in Missouri!
QUILTERS STATION!! SO they come first!
A box big stuffed to the gills! and they do the best job of wrapping! Tucked in the right lower corner is a bottle of Distress it! All triple wrapped in ziplock baggies!
This is the wool they sent me. It will work well for lots of things. Gray, brown plaid, navy plaid and a nice piece for a dirty Snowman! I'm going tomorrow to get a few more pieces nearby that a reader shared with me and I'm so excited. Wool...nearby...near ME??!!
Tada! A box of 34 luscious plaids. Just in case you thought I was out...hahahaha! never happen in my lifetime.
I asked for 6 creme backgrounds, 6 reds, 6 greens, 4 medium blues and 4 gold and they picked out the BEST stuff. I trust those gals with everything. They don't have bad fabric there! Everything is so yummy! I just call and say what I want and they cut, pack and ship it right to my door! Of course I'd love to live near by, but then I'd be considerably poorer.
So what's on my design wall? Lots of everything..Blocks completed and waiting for me. That's the Nativity quilt background as I add pieces. I need a dark brown wool to cut the manger strips, then I'll have a better idea of where each piece goes. There's lots more to add!
The angel goes in my SLOL BOM quilt...she's waiting. The pumpkins are waiting for quilting. The beige and beige floral is the house for my Four Seasons bom ready to go into the hoop for stitching soon...the floral just gives more space for the hoop to grab. I sew on the strips with a very large seam and remove them later. That's my little swap quilt, and the finished bird from 4 seasons waiting for his piecing parts to be sewn on. The red pile next to the TV is the batting for the pumpkins and the Angel quilt waiting for the sleeve to be sewn down. I have several things from which to choose!
So lots going on around here! I'll show the finished Sweet Land of Liberty block later in another post. Happy Quilting!
