This week I worked on various blocks of the month – self-planned are tan and blue applique sampler, cherry berry applique album, lori smith 30’s sampler, and Seasons.
The new internet b.o.m.s are Anne Sutton’s A Tisket A Tasket, and Pearl P. Peirara’s mystery quilt block a month.
I also sat down and sewed 84 strip pieced blocks for an interesting top – pic will follow soon. I had all the strips ready to sew, and I knew that if I didn’t get these blocks sewn soon they be destined for a dark hiding place; at least now I know the project is finishable (is that a word?).
Another idea popped into my head this week when I re-found the basket of chain blocks I had made earlier this fall/winter – I’m thinking of using some of the 30’s scraps I have to make crazy blocks with redwork accents. I have Alex Anderson’s book Shadow Redwork, which has been on my to do list for years, and I think the fruit redwork would look great in this quilt.
The Tiger Lily wallhanging is sandwiched and ready to quilt, but inspiration or energy hasn’t struck yet, but it’s ready when I am!
