Greeting from South Texas where Spring is here and the weather is wonderful – just right for a hot natured Quilter! I do not know when I will learn that medication that is good for most people is just not good for me! But I digress away from my quilting! Doing a 100% better and back to normal, thank you very much! I started about a week ago on finishing my un-named 2007 BOM – Cannot believe that I started this in Arizona in 2007…and left it sit all these years. I had 6 blocks to either design or to use EQ6 and EQ7 and 1 that had to be redone because of a discoloration on the background fabric. I chose the EQ way. Thinking of naming it Nanette’s 2007 Flower Quilt, but that may change.
But that did not make it easier. The March Block (shamrocks) had issues with the background fabric – so one more to do! Then I appliqued a single Sunflower (did not work – that is in the trash can). Another one to redo. Monday night I was down to the Oak Leaves for November – did one leaf and decided – ‘not going there’! Decision time – it is going to be a Turkey. Yesterday I had to design a Turkey of my own.
Now it is Wednesday and I am finished with all the blocks. It would be sewn together this morning, but we have to go to San Antonio today so it will be later this evening or tomorrow and it will be sewn together. I am going to take it to the quilt rack in the house and it will stay there until I make a decision on the border. Besides, I am very tired of applique for a while!
You can see that in 2007, the BOM’s were quiet different. This is a mixture of blocks that were provided by the Sierra Vista Quilt Guild each month and then the last 6 blocks I designed (well OK the Turkey) and then EQ6/7 did the rest. The last block is a beautiful Red Poinsettia. Not a good picture, may update the picture later.
Have a great day – I need to get going for Wednesday. Spring is here and Summer is just around the corner.
