Tomorrow Clay and I are going to journey to Belton, Texas for the bi-annual Ham Fest for Amateur Radio Operators. A Ham Fest is like a Quilt Show to Quilters! I have always enjoyed going with Clay – fun to talk to the guys and to look at the equipment they bring to sell and the newest radios on the market.
There is a neat quilt shop called The Sewing Basket, located in Salado, Texas and YES I will be visiting them.
In the meantime, I wanted to update a Block Change. When I work on a project, as I finish each block I put them on my design board to study. I put the 4 blocks from the Margaret Potts quilt on the design board and my eyes kept coming back to Block 11. It just did not “pop” and I knew that it was the “pink fussy cut” flowers that did not blend with the large flower. I knew then I needed to go back to the original rose petals that I had cut out for Block 11. I think this looks much better than the first version. I will be a little more selective next time. I am sure that when we Quilters do not feel good that it impacts our fabric selection – especially with Applique.
Have a wonderful week-end. I am going to take my CWB along just in case it gets “boring”. I am behind on CWB and need to catch up. Life is good!
