Sunday Afternoon

This is my latest Women of the Bible quilt block. It is for Hagar and I did it with reverse and needleturn applique. It was a challenge trying to get those little points pointy...unfortunately, I wasn't too successful. But, it was fun to do applique again, I haven't done it in ages. My next block, for Lot's Wife, is paper pieced, so I hope to have that done tonight.

Not much to blog about here. It was a busy week, it seems like the time flies and I don't get on the computer as much as I'd like! I quilted two customer quilts this week, so next on the machine will be Judy's last one hour a day quilt. I'm not joining in right now with the new one, although I'd love to...I've always wanted to do an autumn leaf quilt. Maybe I can jump in later...I'm going to print out the instructions for the leaf blocks. I love the variety of fabrics everyone is using....these colors are just my favorites. I like Jeanne's too, I never would have thought to make the leaves green! (Sad, isn't it?? LOL) I tend to look at patterns and think, "Yes, it's great in those colors," and then make a quilt that is somewhat similar. I don't think outside the box often, unless the colors of a quilt are WAY outside my comfort zone. Then I just use the colors I love and make the quilt that I'm comfortable with.

My goals for this week are to quilt one of my quilts, and make a few CareBags. I have some Hawaiian prints that would be great for these bags and I bought some drawstring last week so I can make them. I'll post photos when I finish. Other than that, I have a run of doctor appointments this week...this is the week my daughter returns to the surgeon and he decides if they need to do a biopsy on her lymph node. Since the swelling hasn't gone down, I'm thinking he'll want to do one.

Thanks to Cher, who has offered to share her 49ers fabric with me...isn't she sweet? I'm so very excited!

I just have to ask... is the block for Lot's wife a salt shaker? :D

Jeanne said...

Keeping your daughter and all of you in my thoughts and prayers.

I like the Hagar block. There is a little trick to getting those points to be pointy - much easier shown than explained!
