Hey everyone….I hope you are all busy busy busy…doing your thing for Christmas…I am recovering from some girlie surgery I had on Monday…so there in not much going on here…but before the surgery I had accomplished a few things…like cleaning out some drawers and cupboards…decorating and making my favorite chocolates for Christmas….and a little present from who knows when???? I think it is a potato???I will show more decorating later…LB
Just thought I would do a quick post about a new Primitive Magazine coming out! I am so excited for these girls…go to their website and subscribe! They will be coming out with 4 issues a year starting in April I believe…and you will see projects from Primitive Gatherings and other great designers in it! Here is the link to their site…..LB
Here are most of my projects that I worked on at this past weekend retreat…bunches of blocks for a little Featherweight Club project…then I made a 6″ star block for shop hop…I don’t really care for the block. I wish the star points were the same instead of alternating…but if I would have used a different fabric to set the star in it probably would have looked better…It is made with 1/2″ triangles…THANGLES of course…then I fused and stitched the 9th block of Settler’s Pride a quilt designed by Maggie Bonanomi…I love this quilt…Can you guess where it is going to hang?..I also stitched a little table mat for my mother…it has chickens and a log cabin block…I gave it to her without taking a pic first…we are having a snow blizzard now…see what the window of my sewing room looks like? Can you say snowday tomorrow??? LB
Jan Schneider is a remarkable quilter. When I was thinking of who could pull off a bed turing for our open house, her name was one of the first on my list. I had to prod her a little and tell her is was not going to be all that bad and that once you start talking about your quilts the nervousness goes away, who knows her quilts better than her, I told her? Besides being a great and prolific quilter Jan is super nice person as well as a classy lady who supports all of the quilt shops in our area. I have tried to name and point out as many quilts, patterns, designers and so on as I could remember, but there are many I can’t recall, this is only a part of her 25 years of quilting…so enjoy!
