Good morning Quilters! It is HQAL and a Slow Sunday Stitching day all in one! Take the time to click on the ladies (links below) who participate in HQAL and review their latest projects.
We are now the new Desert for sure – 66 days without rain, and 141 days with some rain, but nothing over an inch or two! Setting up a piggy bank for tree cutting – maybe I need to get a part time job because the tree cutting business is beginning to really boom in South Texas and probably all across the state. The area lakes are down about 49 feet! We will just pray for rain because there is nothing in the forecast forthe remainder of April.
I have FINALLY started Dresden Heaven. I believe there are 105 mini and 10 large Dresden Plate blocks to applique to background squares. The small ones are appliqued to 5” Squares. I cut a section of the background fabric and draw a grid. This makes it much easier to applique when working with small blocks.
Now on to Jacobean Holidays. I finally have it on the Design Wall and know what I will do with it! The last 4 blocks (along with a few that were finished but did not make the Design Wall) are in the “trash drawer” never to be used! I think I just may hand quilt this puppy as the background fabric is very light weight and probably would not be a good candidate for the long arm machine. I have one more border to add and then I will do a post tomorrow for To Do Tuesday.
Counting down the time to head to our favorite Casino! Cannot wait! Have a great week!
