Hello! I’m not sure why things are so hectic lately, but I can’t seem to get any quantity of time at the sewing machine lately the past month. I have been working on some projects, which I will share one today and another tomorrow.
For now, I’m trying to get ready to go to a 4 year old’s birthday party – then move on to a birthday party for two 40+ year olds. My brother and I share a celebration each year at my parents house – usually on the Saturday that falls closest to his (since he is after me).
But for my progress work … I have added three more Great Granny Squared blocks from the pattern book by Lori Holt of the same name.
I have started with a fat quarter bundle of Bluebird Park by Kate & Birdie Paper Company. As I work more with the blocks, I feel like I want some more punch of color – more blocks that have saturation included. I remember that somewhere … SOMEWHERE … I have either a small bundle or a layer cake of Birds & Berries by Lauri and Jesse Jung. Very similar colors and I think it would be the perfect match for what I want:
Now, I just have to find the time to go through all my boxes and closets to find this fabric … 🙂
Another progress report is from Jennifer Thacker who is sewing along with a small group of us doing the Reach for the Stars quilt, as featured in a 7 part series in Quilters Newsletter.
Jennifer has completed Block 3 and it is just beautiful! I love her fabric selections in the block. Jennifer doesn’t have a blog of her own, and I am so glad she is letting me share her progress with you on mine!
Have a wonderful Saturday and first weekend of Spring! I woke up sneezing about 10 times in a row, so that’s how mine is going.
See you tomorrow with my next update!
