I have managed to finish 2 more blocks. One is for the second time around in the Jellyroll QAL and the other one is for the Layer Cake QAL. I didn't particularly car for the block 11 in the LCQAL so I decided to look for a substitute block. We have a basket and a flower and so this is what I came up with for my block 11. I'd like to know what you think of it. I used some Presencia perle cotton size 12 for the embroidery. It is the first time I have worked with this thread. I had to use a much larger needle than I usually use for embroidery, and even
I found the block pattern on the Quilter's Cache website. If you have not discovered them yet you should go and take a look. Their patterns are great!
For the Jelly roll QAL block, I loved making this block the first time and loved it just as much the second time. I am super pleased with how the block came out too. It was so easy and looks so great!
I joined a group on Flickr that swaps designer fabrics. I needed some Heather Ross fabric for a block I am making for another group I am in and I didn't happen to have any. So a new friend of mine on Flickr sent me these in the mail. Wasn't that sweet of her?
I really need to work on the two HR blocks so I may not go to quilting tomorrow and go instead to QQ's house since she needs to do the same 2 blocks for the same 2 projects. Then I could finish laying out the tumbler quilt (and maybe take some photos of that too). I would like to work on my Dreamy Stars and finish that top too, if not this week, then maybe this weekend. We only have 1 more block to go in the LCQAL and then I can begin putting those 2 quilts together. I need one of them by the end of May! Sooo much to do.
I hope you enjoyed the post about making buttons for your blog that I posted yesterday. I was able to do the whole thing using Flickr instead of Photobucket too just in case some of you would rather use your Flickr account. I know that's what I will be using in the future.
I still have 3 things available for purchase from 2 days ago. The patterns, the brown fabrics and the fabric and pattern, and bag sides for May, all in Thimbleberries fabric. If you are interested let me know. Well, back to work. Have a great Tuesday and we'll talk soon. Leave me a comment and let me know what you are up to too. ~XOP~
