I should change the name of my blog to "Among the Missing". I don't know what's kept me so busy. Just life I guess. Kids coming over, sewing blocks, that 4 letter word WORK! One of the things I've been doing is making stars out of homepun fabric and muslin. They're for a swap on the Yahoo group I help with, Backporch Friends. I used Triangulations for the quarter square triangles. I LOVE the program. I bought it at Road to CA and it has been worth every penny I paid, which I think was just over $20. I like that it's on my computer and I can print off any size I need, day or night, whenever I get the whim to sew. :o) And this is an OLD ufo that should be finished already. These blocks are from a swap I did a few years ago called Thrifty Thimbleberries. The Thrifty block using only TB fabrics. Well, it had been a top for a really long time. A couple of months ago, I sandwiched it to quilt it on my Juki. I could've asked my friend Sherrie if I could've gone over and used her longarm but that would've been too easy! So I thought I would just grid quilt it and look at it. Pins still there. Untouched by human hands. Good grief....I need to stop being a starter and start being a finisher! If you hear anything that sounds like a sonic boom, maybe it will be the earth coming to a screaching halt from shock.....that maybe I started quilting this quilt!
It's my FAVORITE time of the year!!
