Thought I would share a little of my Sis's artwork. She doesn't quilt, but she expresses herself in another way. The following are stools, highchairs and rocking chairs that she has painted for her grandchildren and for charity auctions.
Wow, is she talented or what??
Someday, hopefully in the next decade, when I have grandchildren, she will gift us with a personalized rocker. I have made each one of her grandchildren a quilt, so just maybe.
And look at this giveaway!
I would love to own him and find all the hoops I have to jump through well worth it.
My chances??--very small, but what the heck. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
The last big block of my Kim Diehl quilt is ready for hand sewing. Ok, it still needs 21 little berries, but that will not take long.
Yesterday, I had to take a long road trip south to Mesa to help my DD get to school. What a perfect opportunity to visit Zoe's and the Attic.
I found three perfect fabrics for two different reproduction projects I have swirling around in my brain. The first is the JPN project that I mentioned before. I did not get permission to run a blog group, but still plan to make a small version of it someday. That is what that aqua fabric is for.
The pink and yellow are for a quilt that Kathie at Inspired by Antique Quilts posted about this last week. I ordered the book and plan to draft my own version of the Pennsylvania sampler quilt made by Barbara Butcher Snyder in the late 1800s. I loved the black and pink border with the yellow setting blocks the best and these will be perfect. I bought all the store had left. Might have to do a web search for more.
Doreen at Aunt 'Reens Place and I are cooking up another quilt along/BOM for the next year. I may invite you to sew along with me while I make the sampler as well. So stay tuned and keep those pictures and updates coming on your SAL blocks and quilt tops.
