I didn't realize it has been a week since my last post. I've been busy....or not busy.....recuperating from the fantastic show last weekend in Statesville. Thanks to all my bloggy friends and bloggy lurkers who came by the booth and introduced yourself to me. You know who you are! Forgot how much paperwork it takes to run a business, too!
I am getting better at scheduling myself and even fit in some personal quilting this past week. Remember Cheri's Soot & Ashes freebie last fall? I made mine with black, cream and changed the centers to red. She told us that there would be 15 blocks with some applique but we didn't know what the final product would look like.
This is what immediately came to mind . . . .
A 4 x 4 layout instead of Cheri's 3 x 5 layout. When I saw Cheri's, I just decided to keep mine the same way I pictured it in the beginning.
I had started to do some needleturn applique but quickly frustrated myself and switched to wool. I'll embroider some words on the bottom when I think of something catchy.
Libby mentioned that maybe I should change the name to Soot and Embers since I added the red centers. I think I like that idea. So there it is. A new quilt top!
Cold and rainy today. A good day to stay in and do some handwork. Stay warm!
