I’m finishing up bits and pieces, collecting bits and pieces, and am covered with bits and pieces of thread (On Mondays and Wednesdays — my teaching days — I’m always worried I’ll stand up in the front of the class with snips of thread sticking to me). Above is the label, all sewn on, for my recent Schnibbles quilt: America Is A Tune (it must be sung together). Finished that up tonight.
This is the Schnibbles from last month all pinned up ready for quilting.
The blocks from the Mid-Century Modern Bee are starting to come in, and as they arrive, I iron them and smooth them up on the pinwall next to Santa. It’s so fun to see them come in, with their nifty signature blocks (we decided to do a signature block and I’m really happy we did!).
Some Other WIPs:
Lollypop Tree–it calls to me from the guest room closet where it is on a hanger, like a siren song. I ignore it, for the most part.
Friendship Quilt Blocks–I just need to sew them together. What is taking me so long? Our novel for class, Moon Over Manifest, has a signature quilt in the story line, so I took in a few blocks to show the students. As I looked at the signatures of the women, I thought of each of these ladies. This will be a gem. At some point.
Santa (above). I could start working on the houses and trees, I guess, now that I’ve finished up my Four-in-Art quilt for the November reveal. (Suppressed squeal of joy) Come back in a few days and see the gallery. We have eight total now, so it should be a fun blogging/Flickr day.
Friendship Swap Blocks with Krista–we finally worked out our schedule and are ready to go.
I also have fabric for a Halloween quilt — oops! Next year.
Not a WIP: finished my novel Light Between Oceans–loved it. Can recommend it highly.
Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced,
if she decides to run it, as I know she’s been very busy with getting things ready for market.
