Things are actually moving along in the world of the needle! A couple of weeks ago Greg and I went on vacation and I finished another block on Shores of Hawk Run Hollow. I was happy about that!
No ironing - otherwise this post would not have happened!
I've also been sewing! I took out this old WIP (I refuse to call something a UFO for some reason) and have been working on it. As I previously talked about, I'm making this one work with what I have on hand. Since I started this early in my quilting "career", it's less than perfect. I've made some adjustments and it's now smaller at 9 blocks vs. the 12 originally intended. Would I put these fabrics together today? Probably not. There are some 30's fabrics in there along with some Kaffe and a Tula Pink plus some other odd fabrics. The quilt is from Egg Money Quilts by Eleanor Burns. Excellent step by step instructions. Some say you don't even need to read the words to understand what to do.
I'm going to try quilting this one myself. I have some vague ideas of what I'm going to do on most of the blocks but need to figure out the sashing and cornerstones (not shown). I'm not going to get better if I don't start doing it and I thought this would be a good quilt to start on!
It feels good to spend time with my needles again!
