I didn't realize that I hadn't posted in a while. Life has been busy with work, family (Grand baby #5 will arrive on the scene tomorrow) and being fully immersed in the holidays. Thanksgiving is a blur now as I prepare for Christmas. I am making quilts for my dad, brother, son-in-law and my daughter's significant other of their favorite sports teams. Unfortunately, there is a heated good-natured rivalry among the men folk in my family. My dad and son-in-law are devoted, die-hard (although somewhat unhappy) Washington Redskins fans. My brother (they must have found him in the cabbage patch) is a boisterous, fun-loving Dallas Cowboys fan and so is my daughter's boyfriend. So family gatherings are loud, raucous, and interesting to say the least. They are each receiving a lap quilt. I will post pictures a little later.
I am continuing to work on the Farmers' Wife Sampler quilt, although I have not completed nearly as much as I wanted to. I did finally complete block #13, Buckwheat. I put it together and it was wonky, so I took it all apart and re-sewed it. It looks better. It has a lot of pieces as most of the blocks in this series. But I made a commitment to do it and I will see it through. This is a photo of my second attempt.
I haven't started on the Dear Jane challenge yet because I do not know where I want to go with it just yet as in fabric choices and design. It is on the back burner until after the holidays and I can give it the time it deserves.
I completed the African Snowball quilt and my friend Carrie quilted it for me on her Tin Lizzie. She did a wonderful job. I am going to bind it this week, but here are pictures of the front and back of the quilt. It turned out quite beautiful. I have a nice zebra print that I am going to use for the binding. It should work well with this quilt.
I have a lot going on...everyone have a great week and thanks for stopping by!
