It's the week before the quilt show in Sisters and it's when we usually have a group sewing away at the cabin. This year, it's just Claire and I as my other friends had conflicts.
I didn't get much sewing during the week when we had the grandkids but once they left, it's been pedal to the metal, sort of!
I did catch up with the Moda Blockheads II. The first block is a whopping 24"!!
I had fun fussy cutting the stripes and the center from a fabric I found in Bend this week.
I have also been working on the Primitive Gatherings Freebie from last summer. It requires the tiniest quarter square triangles that finish at 1-1/2"! In hindsight, I realized I probably could've just done half square triangles... a little less work. Now I need to finish the last couple of trees before I can attach all the rows together and start working on the border appliqué.
I really do enjoy wool appliqué. I love that I don't have to turn the edges under and I enjoy doing buttonhole stitching with fun threads which I generally like to show!
Earlier this week I went with a friend to the Tour of Homes held here in Bend and saw this fabulous tile floor in a guest bathroom. Loved it!
And one home had this fabulous piece (all the homes are staged so the furnishings are always so unusual!). This one is a basket wrapped in newspapers!
And at one house, in a kid's room, they had fabulous framed pictures with various sayings. I loved this one:
Quilt show is tomorrow!! WOOHOO!
