Next to check off is my September UFO the pansy block that's part of Kourageous. I'm most fond of the pansy flower over any other flower, but OMG this design is incredible. I'm working on this today. I WILL have it done before the day is finished...you can help me by keeping your fingers and toes crossed that I'm successful. If things don't go well today I've still got most of the week to get through it. This block is not the pansy as you can see, it's the iris that I corrected. Look back to previous posts. Do you see my mistake?
I didn't make as much progress as I'd hoped yesterday on Kolonial. I do have a few dark stars (sounds like a sci-fi program) assembled, but still a ways to go. I'm starting to ponder my quilting thread color and design. Kerry is all lined up to get this one quilted just as soon as I'm ready.
Memory Lane Quilt Shop got some business from me on Saturday. My Mom had me shopping for a back for a Bonnie Hunter project she finished up. She's so lucky to have her giving a lecture and two day workshop in her area the second weekend of October. Show and Tell, with a little luck, will have Mom's quilt displayed when Bonnie visits. What started out being a pink backing has turned into white, black, and gray. I fought hard to go the pink, but just couldn't make it work in my mind. Next I thought a teal thread would be the way to go...but that changed too. Mom...are you ready? It is going to be fabulous with the quilt design I selected that matches the paisley in the border.
I'm all cut and ready to sew on Sunshine Quilt Guild's Setpember BOM. Thought I'd throw in a blue/rust color Fall batik. Notice how similar this background is to the Memory Lane purchase? Love it!
My stash report suffered from my Memory Lane visit; Mom it's all your fault for taking me to Memory Lane! They had a must get neutral as their bolt of the day. (You must have a nearby quilt shop that does this too.) 20% off a batik neutral...come on how can it be resisted?
