Violet is taking a nap so I'm grabbing this quiet moment to show you what I've been working on lately.
I've been plugging away on the center block for the 19th Century Sampler Quilt block of the month I'm working on. Megan Carroll designed a fantastic sampler using the Palampore Panel by Mary Koval. I haven't done broderie perse in a while so I'm really enjoying it.
I've done some scrap sorting and it was nice to get those a little more organized. Violet was happy to help and I told her I'm just not one of those people who can throw away little bits of fabric if I can use them in a quilt sometime. I found some really neat pieces and set a few aside to go in my Stonefield's Quilt. It's a long term project and I left it at the cottage for the summer. I'll try to take a few pictures when I get there this weekend so you can see my blocks.
Here's a sneak peek of a few of the blocks in the new $5 Block of the Month quilts coming out in the next couple of weeks. It's taking longer than I anticipated to get instructions written. There's a big quilt, smaller quilt and a surprise too! I'll send out an email as soon as they're ready so you can sign up.
If you're headed to the Shipshewana Quilt Festival this weekend and want to see the Just Takes 2 Quilt, it's hanging inside Lolly's Fabrics. They have patterns if you haven't gotten one yet and probably every fabric you could ever want all in one store! Congratulations to Barb Perrin on her first place win in the pieced, large quilt catagory!
I've got to run. Violet just woke up and we're headed to the nursery to see if we can find a fuschia plant to take to the cottage for the hummingbirds.....
P.S. There's a SUMMER coupon code you can use until Monday for 20% off all digital patterns!
