It’s been awhile since I posted and I really don’t have a good excuse. Actually I have many, but none that I will bore you with 😉
Thanks to all who supported me by buying raffle tickets for the quilt to benefit my walk. The winner was Blaine Schnare .. I am currently working on the label & will ship it soon. Congratulations!!
I will be making another next year to raffle.. possibly 2, since my daughter, Alison will be walking with me as she will finally be old enough 🙂
Some of you may already know, but I am scheduled for a long- awaited surgery at the end of this month that will have me incapacitated for the majority of the summer. Since I do not sit still well at all, I have been busy trying to find projects to help me occupy my 6 weeks of recovery.
One of my projects is learning to English Paper Piece.
My friends at Tumbleweed Quilts have helped me get started on this process. What a great group of ladies!!!!
Making hexagons is something that I believe can only be done by hand, so it is the perfect project for me to try this summer.
Here is the beginnings of my hexagons
I found this quilt online and the pattern is Grandmother’s flower garden. I am trying to find what website that I found this on, but cannot. I will continue to try and in the meantime give credit to whomever made this beautiful quilt!
Given the nature of the quilt, I wanted to make mine with ‘antiquey’ types of fabrics. The ladies at Tumbleweed Quilts assisted me in picking out circa 1930’s reproduction prints..
With this print being the center of each flower!!
I am so excited about making this quilt. From the little bit that I have done while learning using my stash, I can tell you that these are VERY addicting.
I have other projects planned as well & will keep up to date with my progress on my blog 🙂
Thanks for reading & stayed tuned for my very next project… decorating my crutches.. I get them tomorrow.
(you didn’t think that I would have boring crutches, did you? )
