And along with that sentiment, let me use this space to update you on my Learning About Walking Foot Quilting project. I know, you didn’t know I had one of those but after last week’s book review, I decided to see what else I could do to learn about quilting with a walking foot. Strangely enough I already had Creative Quilting With Your Walking Foot taught by Jacquie Gering in my Craftsy class collection, so I have been watching that during my exercise bike riding stints. I also recently purchased Next Steps With Your Walking Foot also with Jacquie Gering and I’m looking forward to going through that one once I have completed my current class.

I also recently watched Garden of Quilted Possibilities (w/ Edyta Sitar) and really wanted to make that kit ASAP, but I definitely need to finish some things first. End of #ad.

Although no actual quilting happened this past Saturday, I see that I have not updated with progress from the previous Saturday, so here it is:


Yep, that’s all there was. Four of them. They are part of the 2012 Designer Mystery BOM. Of course, I did have to make all those HSTs before I could assemble the block.

I have also almost completed the Diamond Dash quilt for our church auction. I debated putting some pinwheels made from the waste HSTs into the outside sashing but have decided to stick with the plain white sashing. I also do not plan to use an outer border at this point. I’m planning to finish the top today and, hopefully get it basted so I can walking foot quilt it and get it done! Here are some pictures from the construction and pinwheel debating stages.





 One of my friends who is also a reader here suggested that I have guest book reviewers for Books on Monday over the next few weeks. That would be lots of fun so if you would like to contribute a quilty book review, please email it to gretchen@120blocks.com and I will happily add it to the site to go live during one of my hiatus weeks.

I guess that’s it for today so…

Quilt on!
