Yesterday I finally finished the top of my Fat Quarter Shop 2008 Designer Mystery BOM!! This is the last UFO I have! It is now ready for Vinnie - but first I need to practice a tad more...more later.
Mr. Squash is doing his best here to hold it up - his arms weren't much longer than mine! I set the blocks in a little different order than on the pattern. There were too many darker blocks at the end, so I mixed them up a tad differently. I really loved working with this line - Peace on Earth by 3 Sisters for Moda. I only wish there were more leftovers so I could make some matching pillowcases!
Here it is spread out across our bed.
My next project is Lil's Simpler Tymes Quilt by Jeanne Horton. It is a reproduction of a quilt her mother, Lil, had as baby! Jeanne also designed the fabric for the line. Jeanne owns a wonderful quilt store called the Country Sampler in Spring Green, Wisconsin. I love everything about this shop and hope to someday visit in person!
Practice on Vinnie is going great! I am now watching the videos I ordered from Pam Clarke. They are perfect for the way my brain thinks! She has this great idea of copying pages from her accompanying workbooks, unthreading your needle and bobbin, and stitching over the pages as practice - works great! I'm not quite ready to load a real quilt, but will be soon!
