So much goes into making a quilt. My son asked me how many hours it took to this point….hmmmm….I started cutting on September 17th. I am liking it now!
Well, the Optica quilt is coming along. I have all the blocks done and 7 rows now need to be sewn into strips and then together. I will be doing it this week, in the evenings as a way to unwind. I’m not seeing the optical illusion yet. Here is my friend Jen’s quilt, check out her wild colours!
Our guild is hosting an end-of-the-year project. Each member was given a charm pack of 25 squares and we have to create something with the squares. No other material can show, but if we make a bag we can use a different material inside or the back of a quilt. Any ideas?
And we went apple picking last week-end:
Life is such a whirlwind right now! But I am quilting!
…but not too quickly….I had a marathon to run 😉
Life is going full speed and I hope to get off the rollercoaster soon!
