No way would I EVER be "idle". It's just not in my nature. I've had sisters-in-law and others in
my past sit, stand or follow me around touting
"I'm bored...sigh...I'm bored."
My response was always the same.
"Well, go be bored somewhere else 'cause I've got a bazillion things I'm itching to get done!"
So, even though you don't hear from me around blogland I'm active and busy with quilty things.
Busy with more blocks from my FRIENDS OF BALTIMORE project. This is the second block in the series. (I've completed 5 so far ) Wow, kind of a doozy. Stitching all those tiny black sail riggings was not fun for me, but I persevered and won the battle.
This is a fabulous quilt and there is no reason to fail, after all, it is one of Sue Garman's patterns.
Here is my binder with all the pattern pieces and her wonderful instructions. I have not had ONE question about these blocks that she has not included in the instructions. She is a master!!
TINY PIECES ~ TINY PIECES
So many tiny pieces to prep, but there's something calming sitting quietly turning down all the little edges. Trying to master the process and improve my skills with each piece.
Yes, it's fun and I love it but it can grow tedious and that is why a quilter ALWAYS has to have other projects handy to work on. Sometimes you just need to shake things up a little.
One of my breaks from the hand applique was doing some blocks for the November Block Lotto.
Loved these blocks. They would make a fantastic looking quilt.....sigh......but I didn't win this time.
I have other quilty progress to share, but we'll do that next time.
Happy stitching girlfriends!!
