It's been months since I have blogged. There really is no point in making excuses (I have plenty!) or rehashing the past so let's just move forward from here! LOL
Besides all the sewing I have been doing for the booth samples (which aren't very many) and all the traveling I have been doing ..... going from show to show selling my wool (which I am still in love with), I have been working on Cheri Payne's Common Threads blocks.
Simply Libby and I decided back in June to encourage each other to make Cheri's newest large quilt. There are 25 blocks in all plus a beautiful appliqued border.
I was going to try to use cotton applique to do my squares. I tried, I really did. I'd hate to lose what little needle-turn applique skills I have. But I have become spoiled by the ease of the prep of wool applique. And I do have a lot of wool LOL. So I caved in and am doing all my applique in wool.
Here are the 9 blocks that I have finished so far - not in any particular order other than they are the first 9. Libby is farther along than I am. But as she reminded me, it's not a race, although I would like to be farther along than I am. I REALLY want to finish this one.
How I will get it quilted is beyond me but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
