It's been a long time since I posted here. I've been so busy with all kinds of projects. I finished my third Civil War Bride border and have started on the final border. I didn't get a photograph of the third one.
I've also been making state flower blocks for a BOM that I'm designing for an online quilting group. Although I'm designing them for applique, I decided to make mine in African Folklore Embroidery. I'm making them on white fabric instead of the traditional black. Here are photos of the first two state blocks.
So much has been going on since we returned from our vacation that I haven't done much sewing. I didn't get anything done on vacation and only now started working on my Civil War Bride border. I'm on the third border and hopefully will be finished with it in a week. I did finish a quilt top the other day. It was a calendar block exchange and I had a hard time getting the blocks to come together as they weren't all the same size even though they were suppose to be 12 1/2". I'd like to get all the quilt tops finished that I have stacked up. Most of the blocks are from exchanges and I'm tired of having them in little piles everywhere. Once I'm finished with all the tops I'll either machine quilt them or send them to a longarmer. I hope to have a few photos to share with you soon.
