Wow, I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted. It seems the older I get the faster that time passes me by.
I confess to not being very productive lately, but I think I am finally over my quilting slump. Maybe I just needed a break, but now I am back and so anxious to work on so many projects!
I have a new enthusiasm for Esther's BOM, and am working very hard to catch up with everyone. I am finally past my "I don't fuse" phase, lol. I am doing the blocks using a variety of techniques, basically "whatever works" is my new mantra.
Next week, on Monday and Tuesday, I will attend my guilds retreat. The retreat project this year is Stack n Whack, which I have never done before. I am trying to decide between two fabrics, pictures are here. I could use some feedback from someone who has done one of these quilts before!
Also next week, we have a large national sewing expo in the next town, about a half hour from here. I have attended for the past couple of years and it really is fun. I plan to attend it on Thursday and it looks like I will be able to meet up with 3 internet friends for lunch. It is always exciting to meet up with internet friends.
Another new project is Jinny Beyer's Renaissance Garden quilt. I am anxiously awaiting delivery of the fabrics that I ordered for it. The pattern is free at Jinny Beyer.com and uses a method that she calls "soft edge piecing". It is an applique technique.
That's it for this week. I hope you all have a great one!
