I've been meaning to get back into the swing of blogging with one post a week. Yeah, that's been an epic fail. I just can't seem to focus on writing an actual blog post. Let's see....instant gratification by posting pics on IG with cute little hashtagged commennts or sitting down in front of the computer and actually focusing on complete sentences and using correct grammar (well, sort of)??? Let's see.....that's sort of been a no-brainer this summer!
I really need to get back into blogging. I find that I'm much more productive with my quilting projects (and really everything else!) when I'm keeping myself accountable on the blog.
I have been working on a few projects; two of which are secrets that I've had to hit the pause button on for a few days. I can't show you much, but here's a peek.
I'm showing these in black and white because I fear the color palette will totally give it away to the soon-to-be new quilt owners! One is chock full of Anna Maria Horner though! It's all Pretty Potent and True Colors with a bit of my one and only Dowry print thrown in.
Leave it to me to realize just as I'm getting ready to quilt the AMH and finish the binding on the other one that I don't have the right color of Aurifil for the back or for finishing the binding! Since I've got no place to go buy it locally, I had to quickly place an order and now I'm waiting...
So, what does a quilter do with herself while waiting on the supplies necessary to complete two outstanding WIPs? Well, she starts another project of course! (We won't mention the 8 other WIPs waiting patiently in their boxes to be completed!)
I managed to get everything cut for this project and will start getting blocks pieced today. I'm using Deb Strain's Family Tree collection and a bunch of low-volume prints. II won't say much more since this one is also a gift. I should be able to make a dent in assembling the blocks since the Aurifil probably won't be here until Friday or Saturday (I hope!).
