I'll tell you a secret. I didn't get back from Avila Beach until yesterday afternoon. I got so much done, I can hardly believe it. I showed you two baby quilts in my last post. I've quilted two more, and applied the bindings. I just need to tack them down. I'll show you when they are finished.
I cut the foundation pieces, to increase the size of my "challenge" crazy quilt. I've been wanting to do that since mid-October.
I started sewing Log Cabin blocks, made from floral fat quarters gifted to me by my Best of the Valley committee after the show closed in 2011. I found the stash of fabrics when I cleared out for carpet. It was a delightful discovery. By the time I left on Friday, had 14 rounds of the 17 logs completed...on 50+ blocks!
Hartland in April 2011, I bought the background fabric in Paducah in April of this year. How long does it take to make a quilt? Sometimes
F O R E V E R!!
I know. Stop laughing!! ;)
The next day, the postmistress told me that the reason it was so beautiful was that they'd done a "controlled" burn at Montana de Oro, and it got out of control. Thanks, guys! It was lovely! (I doubt the same can be said for the park.)
And on that, I've got some binding to stitch down. More pictures soon! Goals are good!
