LOTL part deux....done!

weekend task of finishing up these blocks accomplished....gosh, did you ever see a batik fabric that wasn't drop-dead gorgeous?  me either...so first stop today is the post office to send these along.  these 18 plus the 24 from last year will give me a generous twin size quilt top some time later this year.  and thanks to winter weather, have almost half the hawaiian quilted...the orange part; haven't started the white background portion yet.  shameless bragging on how pretty it is and how the quilting really makes the quilt...isn't that always the way? as for the next machine project?  well, next is the 3 star blocks showcasing prussian blue civil war fabrics and then....think the amish style ocean waves flimsy really needs to be finished.  once that top is done thinking a basting day will be in order as there are more than a few that are ready.  **** and are you in for the APQ 4-patch sew along?  not sure if i'll make a full size quilt but maybe a smaller version.  have added the badge to my sidebar.  though have dropped Quilters Newsletter mag due to cost, did pick up the American Patchwork and Quilting mag in its place at half the cost; this plus Quiltmaker are more than enough to keep current on quilty stuff.  ***  been busy since 5 am so taking a short break before continuing on with the day...it's cold and sunshiny and just right to sew!

  3. I am absolutely with you on the beauty of batiks! And to think I used to wonder what people saw in them. : )
    Always busy hands at your place--that is great!
