Meanwhile, I have decided to restart Cheri Payne Saffiote's Sweet Land of Liberty. I had done one block, years ago, then loaned my instructions to someone. This is my finished block. Lori@ Humble Quilts was having a quilt-a-long earlier this year. I have saved her instructions/measurements for the blocks and am planning to work on this. This is the block I had finished before:
Okay, this is where the squirrel comes in. I knew I had a bag of fabric in the closet that I had set aside from taking a class years ago. I thought these would be perfect for this quilt. They are primitive type fabrics. What I discovered was that the class was another of Cheri Saffiote's quilts called Crow's Feet in the book Wednesday's Best . I found that I had 13 out of 36 blocks done.
Today, I cut and sewed 10 more. Now I just have 12 more to do, then add the borders, and the applique pieces.
Meanwhile back to the Sweet Land of Liberty, I made 5 of the economy blocks.
I also prepped for my saltbox house. I need to hold off on this a bit, until I finish my applique on the Flourishes block.
I also prepped 2 more pumpkin blocks for the Great Pumpkin Quilt. These will be machine appliqued,
I tend to sew on my machine, in the daytime, and at night sitting with DH I do hand work.
I think that is all I have going on right now. Other than laundry. My machine finally got its new shock absorbers and I have 3 weeks worth of laundry to do.
Thanks for stopping by!
