Now for the happy stuff! I began making the Cheri Payne Everyday Patchwork blocks and finished them all before I came back to Virginia. I love them! The directions are still on her blog. Scroll back to May 2015. She also has a darling little patriotic quilt on her blog now with the directions.
The other project I was pushing to finish is a Jan Patek design called Homespun Hearth. Altho the book is on Jan's website, it is still out of stock. Finally Karen- Log Cabin Quilter, offered me her book and so I got busy.
I have a tendency to change things and so my version is quite different from Jan's. I am pretty happy with it!
I like to fill spaces and decided that mine needed a dragonfly and a bird on the chimney, etc.
Another little project that I really got excited about was another Cheri Payne design. Again, mine got changed a bit. That seems to happen as I work and use different techniques, don't follow directions, or whatever.
So you can see that I have been keeping busy the past few months. You can just think of me stichin' and itchin'!!
