Remember how I said in my last post that I was gonna take down the blocks on the design wall and lay them out all over the floor??? Well... guess what I found and laid out instead!
|My Blue Heaven pattern from Marcia Hohns's Quilter's Cache Site|
These are the My Blue Heaven blocks that Crazy'boutquilts and I made and swapped with each other a couple years back. I have most of them into large units of 4 blocks but have our last mailing left as singles. It really wouldn't take much time to get these babies sewed together!
After I get them into rows and joined up - I can then hang the top up in the closet where it can wait for me to work on the pieced HST's border sections. Hanging up in the closet should be a safe place for it right? I also need to shop for the blue fabric for the outside border...
GRrr! Blogger will not let me get this photo turned right... Sorry :/ But this is the plan for the borders that Crazy designed up for me in her EQ program. Thankfully all the HSTs are already made for the border- Crazy & I made and sent extras to each other throughout the swap... now where did I stash those babies? There in a safe place somewhere.Also do you remember this big box that my children had a good time playing in last Christmas?
(I tried to look for a photo, must have posted to facebook back when... but since I gave it up for Lent you'll just have to wait until later to see the photo of all 3 of my kids in the big box)
I saved the box and have been putting shirt parts in it and it's almost all the way full.... and almost ready to be mailed to it's new home!
Have a great weekend everyone - and PS - say a little prayer for me... David is leaving for Oklahoma today and that means I'll be taking all 3 kids to church by myself on Sunday since he'll be out of town. I'm already prying that the twins behave and don't act like stinkers.
Love from Texas!
