Our winner of last week's giveaway is Quiltsmiles who lives in NY. Congrats. I'll send you your papers as soon as I hear from you.
The Duarte family is now the Portland, OR family - they got there yesterday early afternoon after a two and a half day journey north. Here they are the night before they headed out - the four right of center (ps - Lily is standing on a block so she wouldn't look so small):
I miss them already! It will be a long while before I get use to this. Now I have two adult children far away.
After roaming the house feeling lost for two days, today I finally got my quilting urge back and began working on a WIP. WIP #5 to be exact.
I can see right away I'm going to have to get myself a bigger design wall - here is just some parts of the center and it's already bigger than my puny DW. I started this WIP in 2011. The pattern is from Fons and Porter published in 2003. It has 12 blocks - mine has only 4 as I have no place for such a large quilt. Those blocks are 14" finished. My plan was to try different applique methods with each block and see how I liked them. I can tell you that I like needle turn applique best, but I'm too slow at it. My next favorite method is Esther Aliu's one. She has a great tutorial on her blog. Give it a look see.
Okay, what are you up to? Whatever it is I'd love to see it. Linky below and it ends next Wednesday, midnight. I'm linking to the parties on my sidebar and also Amanda's as I did finish machine appliqueing the fourth Jubilee block yesterday.
