Letter C of the Little Letters alphabet quilt over at Temecula Quilt Co. posted this morning. Here is the link http://temeculaquiltco.blogspot.com/2014/09/little-letters-c.html
Here are my more manly/country colored letters
and my bright ABC's. I think these will be fabulous baby quilts! I know that Val is making these over at http://myplvl.blogspot.com and we would love to know who else is working on them. Maybe we can start a link up and encourage each other to stick with them...
It is Sunday, so it is time for Slow Sunday Stitching and football. I am working on hand quilting the background for a perpetual calendar with perle cotton.
I decided to use black perle cotton which is a risk for me because my sloppy stitches will show more, but all the numbers for the calendar are outlined with black perle cotton too. I think it will all tie together this way. See what everyone else in the slow stitching world is up to here http://kathysquilts.blogspot.com
I am going to a wedding in a couple of weeks for one of the teacher's I work with, so I of course need to make a wedding quilt. I have been to her current home, but her fiancé has purchased them a different home that I have not seen. She revealed at her bridal shower last night that she moved the curtains from her current home to the new home. Her current home is country with blues, reds, greens, browns, etc. So, I started digging in my UFOs and found four blocks that I inherited from my sister. I have know idea the block's name, but it measures 10 inches and will go together fairly quickly.
I figure a decent size lap quilt will need a total of 30 blocks set 5 x 6 which means I need to make 26 more blocks. I started digging in my scrap bins and cutting away. If everything is cut, I should be able to make a few blocks every night this week and have a completed top next weekend.
It truly is a Smorgasbord of quilting going on over here at my house. I will be participating in the Around the World Blog Hop tomorrow, and I have invited quilters from near and far to join me.
