A few months ago, on a hot sunny day, I visited with the ladies at St. Dunstan's and had a nice cup of tea and a biscuit. I brought books, magazines and snapshots of a dozen quilts that I had pre-selected for them to choose for their 2010 raffle quilt.
Just this week, I bought fabric and I'm cutting out a kit for this quilt and will start sewing next week. There are 10 French Country blues that will go with the white background. The blues are mostly from the same collection, so I'm sure they'll look beautiful together in this quilt. It just so happens that my only grandson wants a blue quilt too, so the left over fabric from this quilt will go into his 'Birds in the Air' quilt.
This is the quilt I will be sewing. The name of it is Nine Patch and Squares but I can't tell you what book it came from. We saw this quilt at a local quilt show and with some rough directions from the quilt maker of this quilt, I'm starting to cut my kit of fabrics. I like the larger white space in the square. This will really show off the fine hand quilting of these ladies. Also the border is room for the stunning rows of their fine stitches.
Watch in December for weekly updates on this quilt. I really find that blogging about my progress, helps me to meet deadlines that I set for myself.
What helps you get stuff done?
