It has been a productive week around here despite a few setbacks. I put the last stitch into the binding of my Forget Me Not quilt, but it is still waiting for a label. I did however make a label for my grandson's graduation quilt.
A couple of months ago my local guild had a mini retreat. We did Stack n Whack, which I had never done before. I managed to keep the project small and completed it just today.
Here is a picture of the original fabric. I knew when I first saw it that it would work really well for the stack and whack project, but unfortunately it matches nothing in my house! Maybe I will put it on Ebay. Not sure I would do another stack and whack, but I really did enjoy this retreat.
And finally......one more picture of Forget Me Not. I must ask Esther's permission to display it in our local quilt show in October.
And now, I am waiting for Esther's newest BOM to be announced. Meanwhile, I am working on a simple scrap quilt (well, actually 2 of them) which will become graduation presents for Allora in 2014 and Ireland in 2015! The good news is that these 2 quilts will make a dent in my stash!
So that has been my quilting week. We are enduring the sadness of my daughter having a miscarriage last week. She is improving both emotionally and physically each day, and for that we are extremely grateful.
I hope you all have a happy and productive week! Thanks for taking the time to read my blog.
