I've finished the 16 blocks of Mystery 12. I'm not going to be able to put it together for a couple of weeks. Rats. Here is my pile of blocks -- there are many different ways they can be laid out. I'm looking forward to having time to play with them. But, they won't be worked on until I get another set of blocks sewn together.
Remember this blog? http://institcheswithbonnie.blogspot.com/2010/01/help-wanted.html
I've gotten LOTS of comments on the layout choices. Hopefully I will get that into a quilt over the next month or so. After I get those into a top I have NYE 2009 mystery to quilt. And, I have a pineapple quilt to quilt for a customer! Wow! That has to take precedent in February.
I was at Milford Valley Quilt Guild tonight. We got to see the Accu Quilt Go operate. One of the cool things Noreene showed us was the applique designs. She made this darling towel by cutting the fabric with something like Wonder Under already fused on into hearts. Then, a quick zig zag stitch or machine buttonhole finishes this off. How cute is that!
We've got hearts on our minds. Diann Becker designed this block to teach machine applique at our next meeting. Again, fusible web and machine embroidery makes this a quick block. I'm going to make one of these blocks -- now which fabric should I use??? Decisions, decisions! I'll share mine with you when I get to it.
I am also planning a couple of valentine postcards... shush don't want the people who will be receiving them to know about it yet. So, before I spill the beans, I'll wish you happy quilting.
