I came home from Kansas City on Saturday night and spent the day yesterday with friends wine tasting in Napa. Now that's a great way to spend a Sunday. But that means I'm terribly behind and a bit overwhelmed. Not to mention tired.
While traveling to KC, I did work on the latest JT4vr applique block and want to show you what I did.
I actually used fabric from the Cotton Club block of the month (oops) because I just love their reds. Lucky for me Pat brought me more fqs! Dont look too closely...my applique leaves room for lots of lessons.
While we were together, Pat had brought along her Lori Smith top she just finished with a fabulous wool applique in the center. Both Debbie and DarLynn are wool applique-ers (as Lori is, too), so I figured it was time to start. What better place than Quilt Market to acquire the tools and a weekend with fabulous experienced wool applique-ers to endeavor to learn?
Here is my first flower. Not overly exciting. But I'm excited to make more...This is one little flower in the whole quilt. If you want to see what it should look like, check out Pat's blog.
I wanted to show you that I really did exercise some restraint in my purchases at Market. Of course, we HAD to go out to Kansas and several other shops in Missouri to see if there was something we couldn't find at Market but had to have, too.
All the wool is at the bottom left. All the packages of fqs are tied together and most are Moda and Andover. Now to find someplace to put them!! :-) I see a giveaway in my future!~!
I have pictures to show you some of the things I saw at Market. I'll post those later.
Hope everyone had a great weekend and is having a wonderful Monday.
Love to you all,
Chief Sower, who is planning a BONUS block this week, by the way!
