Time to catch up
Has it really been this long since I posted anything here? Sometimes I wonder where the time goes............it seems to me I'm much better at reading other people's blogs than adding anything new to my own.
Probably because I don't have much to show you.
The last thing I stitched and finished was a gift for someone so I couldn't show it here in case they saw it. The stiching I'm working on now is a mailart exchange for someone else who pops in here from time to time so I can't show that either.
Instead I'll show off these quilt squares that I'm working on at my weekly quilt group meeting. They are taking me forever to do because I only ever work on them at the group meetings and the truth of the matter is that there is more talking than sewing going on there!
The fabric I'm using is by Thimbleberries. The light colour is from the Sedona Skies range and the red is from the Paintbox range I think.
I'm using a free pattern from Quilters Cache called the Goshen Star.
I have 13 of the red blocks done and two of the lighter, alternating blocks. These light blocks go faster so hopefully I'll get them done one of these days.
I don't have the least idea how to either hand quilt or machine quilt so don't hold your breath for a picture of the finished quilt!
