It's been a mixed bag of projects that have gotten some attention this New Years weekend. I've bounced from machine quilting, hand quilting, piecing and hand applique.This one is for a special someone.
No kidding that quilting makes the quilt. Here is the before....
And when I felt like sitting at my DSM, I have worked on a few of the sashing pieces for this block. 2 done, 70 more to go. This project requires a LOT of cutting. 288 sashing pieces, 288 corner squares, and 576 dark corner squares! The upside is that I'll end up with 576 bonus 1/2 sq triangles that will finish at 1 1/4" for a later project.
Sisters Choice by Bonnie Hunter. The center 9 patches were from my Nov swap through this Yahoo group. It's called a Nickel swap group, but it's so much more than that. It's worth checking out if you are into swapping 30's and Civil War prints and blocks.
And my shadow all weekend. Because I her, I have to get dressed and move my feet. We did a 3+ mile walk yesterday, it was beautiful, cold and sunny. We'll be doing it again today!
