Whew!

So I let nine days go by without posting! Even after promising myself that I would get more regular here. Sigh.

This week the church quilt got its borders, got marked and got layered. Today or tomorrow it will make its way onto the frame and I’ll take a picture of it to post here. I don’t hate it as much as I did when I was trying to put it together. (Putting together blocks made by a bunch of different people with different ideas of a quarter inch seam is very tedious – sometimes involving lots of unsewing to make them fit.) However, we are discussing maybe doing a wholecloth quilt for next year. That way we could just order one and layer it and put it on the frame in January and work on it all year. Right now it sounds really good to me. But we will see.

As soon as that is on the frame, I will finish marking the 2009 Designer Mystery BOM from the Fat Quarter Shop so I can get it on my frame. Here’s a reminder of what that looks like:

I have it all marked except that I need to finish marking the crosshatching in the border. I am looking forward to getting it on the frame so I can do some hand quilting for myself – because this quilt is for me!

I am getting ready to go to the AQS Quilt Show in Grand Rapids in about 10 days! Yay. If you are going to be there and want to meet up, let me know. I’d love to meet some of you.

Okay, I will now get back to my regularly scheduled Saturday – making a PowerPoint to use for the song lyrics in church tomorrow!

Quilt on!

    That’s a beautiful quilt! I love all of FQS’ Mystery Blocks of the Month – one of these days I’ll sign up for one! I wish I was close enough to meet you at the Quilt Show!
