I already had these cut out and Sunday afternoon I just needed something to sew that didn't need my brain. Just something to chain sew. And I did all 70 of them. I love the "4 Patch Stacked Posies" pattern. It is addictive. The blocks are positioned on my muslin backed quilt "design bed". I'm thinking of the lighter pink in the roses for sashing strips and corner stones from the same focus fabric. What do you think? Doesn't the fabric remind you of the wonderful roses that are blooming here in Texas?
I make armchair pincushions to sell and I cut out four one day this week. Hopefully, I can get those sewn up today. Last Thursday I went to Post Oak to visit the Busy Bee Quilters. It's about a 45 minutes drive one way in a very rural area. It's not unusual to see wild turkey, deer, or even a cow eating on the side of the road who has found a way out of the fence. There weren't many wildflowers and I was disappointed at that. I had a wonderful time and again they helped me out with my inventory. Sorry, I forgot my camera.
I planted some zinnias, cosmos, and salvia flower seeds this week. Hopefully, they will come up and bloom for pictures this summer. Yesterday was Kraz-z Quilters. Kathleen and I stayed late after everyone else left and finished Jan's Drunkard Path Butterfly quilt. I will post a picture soon. And guess what? It's my turn to have a quilt done! Which one do I pick? Hmmmmm.
I gotta decide quick because I have to get the backing ready and thread. Oh my! Oh, can you keep a secret? Good. We are planning a surprise to honor our darling Agnes at Kraz-z Quilters. She is 95 years old and has been a member since 1992 when she moved to our area from Austin. We are making her an honorary member and will invite her family in the area. Fun, Fun!
Tomorrow, I plan on going to watch DGD and DGS play ball about an hour's drive away. DH is BBQing a pig this weekend for a golf tournament fund raiser. I'm not crazy about going with him and staying all day (it's about an hour's drive in the other direction). So I will let you know what I do.
Blessings and happy quilting,
