Let’s Get Crackin’: Finish This! • June 2017

Okay, so I used up my old list with crossing stuff off and writing stuff on.  It’s a bit dispiriting to see some quilts that never seem to launch, but I’ll give it a go.  Again.

I had fun at this web site, making these titles in a “text generator.”  Scroll down to where you type in your text (on the left), choose the kind of font you want (scroll up on the right to see the categories), add color, effects and then generate it.  As a Mac owner, I hold down the Shift+Command+4 and it turns the cursor into a crosshairs pointer so I can capture images.  I wadded them all up into one document and printed it off.  I hope soon to get to crossing off things.

I finished Mary’s star block for June’s Gridster Bee blocks. She blogs at NeedledMom and always has a lot of fun gardening things to see, besides all her stellar quilting.   The free download for her choice can be found here.  And here is our signature blocks, which we send to each other:

I use a cardboard template behind my block to help me remember what to sign (and I also back the signing place with a piece of ironed-on freezer paper and use a .08 Micron pen).  Seems to work okay.
