Good Sunday Afternoon! The weather is certainly not winter time anymore here in South Texas. I certainly hope that we do not jump into them lovely beginnings of another drought and hot summer. Time will tell. I am linking to Hand Quilt Along and Slow Stitching Sunday!
I have begun the New Year this month, and am working diligently getting 3 UFO quilts sewn together into a quilt top! I have just finished Ms Potts (at least all I am going to make from that pattern) and it really feels good to have completed it. When I first started the quilt I had decided to make it with some Moda Reds and Greens, and add other colors, and throw in a few Batiks. Baltimore Applique Society (BAS) was doing a BOM with this pattern for members. I already had the pattern for a few years but never started it. I believe around last September I decided I had enough of Ms Potts (this is a very large Reproduction quilt and all hand Appliquéd). I had completed 15 blocks, but only used 13 because it is set on point. My quilt measures 43” x 43” with 10” blocks.
I have also finished Block 6 of Sweet Stitches – WHEW! I am taking a break from black embroidery thread for now! I will finish the remaining 6 before summer (I hope).
In addition, all 105 of my Mini Dresden’s for Dresden Heaven are now complete. Only 16 larger Dresden’s left to make and then the hand work starts. All will be hand appliqued to a background block! EXCITING HUH?
In my next post (I promise) I will reveal my list of projects for 2018! Some are Pipe Dreams, others are doable. I still have a few patterns left to sell if interested. See my 13 February 2018 post and contact me at LCNCCOOK@MSN.COM.
