|This blue pitcher has survived many generations in our family. It's very special to me.|
I had great plans to move full speed ahead this past week to finish some sewing projects but ended up falling a bit short. My goals are usually low pressure. I work hard at not letting my love of sewing turn into something that causes me anxiety. Many of us know how easy it is to let that happen. So I'm satisfied that I finished my Gypsy Girl pillow and quilt top. I used 2.5 inch squares from the leftover jelly roll strips and a few added scrap squares for the pillow.
I used Quiltville's Pineapple Blossom pattern and a jelly roll for the quilt. It worked perfectly. The top is 49x62 without a border.
|I'm hoping this will be finished for my next post. Mr. White Socks is eager to say hi.|
I used the same pattern for this quilt. Choice of fabric can certainly change the entire look of a quilt using the same pattern.
I've been working on some "experimental" blocks for a low volume quilt. I have about 6 blocks finished and I think I just might like it.
* My friend Jess has asked that I share news about the Tassie Bush Fire Quilt Appeal. She says: "As some of you may be aware, my home state of Tasmania has been devastated by some huge bushfires in the last week. Many, many homes have been completely destroyed and families have lost everything. The latest report is that about 200 homes have been either destroyed or severely damaged in the bushfires."
There may be a way that you can help. Please read here.
Congratulations to Diane. She was the randomly chosen winner of last week's giveaway!
