Here is the January block of the month, all finished and pressed, thanks to several 30 mile round trips to town, a guild meeting and a doctor’s appointment for my husband! That’s how to get handwork done!
How do you store unfinished blocks? Here is one way, an unused pizza box! You can usually purchase them at most pizza places, for just a couple dollars. This one has been in my closet for a while and measures 14″ across inside, if that is for a medium or large pizza, I have no idea!
Thought I would share one of the quilts from my book and one-woman play A Thread Runs Through It.
Took Wild Rose quilt to the quilt guild meeting to share, because my friend Sally was the speaker. She was talking about her mother’s and her own quilts. Sally appliquéd all of the roses on this quilt, so I thought it would be fun to show off another quilt, which she helped to make.
The reason she did the appliqué, was because I was close to my book deadline and running out of time. I hand-quilted it, as well, although it is machine pieced.
