Stitching and a finished quilt...but not mine!

I got my kit for block #4 of my BOM. It's kind of a big one and Thanksgiving, cleaning, cooking, and decorating at the end of the month for Christmas, it'll be interesting to see if I can get this one done. It sure is cute though!!

I got a total of four flowers stitched at Thursday Night Therapy (TNT) last night. Hey, it's a start. And I am trying my disappearing marker for marking my blocks. The pencil didn't come off of the last block that easy. I had to soak the block and that's a pain so we'll see how this works. I got this suggestion from a couple of ladies and I've never had problems with this marking method in the past, so we'll see.

And Sherrie popped in after her bunco night with her 'other friends'. ;o) Her husband is a USC alumni and she made this quilt, kind of for him and kind of (mostly) for her. lol It's a beauty!

She got the pattern from our Alabamie friend, Carolyn, who made this same quilt but for OU. These girls are kind of over-the-top football fans. Sherrie satin stiched the SC's in the corners as well as the Trojan in the center of the quilt. She grid quilted through the star and chain blocks, and made her first attempt at trapunto by doing the words "USC" above the Trojan and "Trojans" below him. She had four coaches sign it. It's pretty awesome. I didn't think to get any close ups. I was just happy her and Neena stood still long enough for me to take the picture. :o)

I cannot foresee me getting mine done before the next one comes. I have to concentrate on the holidays...

Sherrie's quilt is beautiful. Those girls sure are big football fans aren't they....

Hope you're enjoying your mother's visit.
