While my sister was visiting she convinced me that I should join her in sewing a Postcards From Sweden quilt. I'm so glad that she did as it is such a happy, colorful quilt. I'm not sure how I will quilt it yet, but I really love it. My sister (IG@alaskanquilter) has already started hers so I am excited to see how she likes it.
|It's hard to get it all in one pictures, but you can see the gorgeous colors.|
This is the background that I have chosen for it....wild and crazy colors too.
Also while she was down, we played a bit with my years old UFO of New York Beauty blocks. I don't know why I hadn't sewn these together yet because they are some of my favorite sewn blocks. Instead of the little bits for leaders and enders that I normally sew, I used these blocks. The result is finally seeing them together.
I think I may do a Bordeaux narrow strip followed by a Flying Geese border to finish it off.
Marsha (IG@quilterinmotion) is our queen bee this month in our Gridster Bee. This was her choice of blocks for us. I love the crispness or a red, white and blue color combination. I did two blocks, but forgot to photograph the other one. ;-(
I watched a couple of the little ones this week. Toby loves it when the kids are here because it is attention overload for him.
Life is good!
