Something to Show at Last
This is going to be another favorite quilt...... I am continually amazed at how well Judy's patterns go together. While pressing the top, ideas for the quilting came to mind. I have several more to complete before this one is layered but I want to sleep under it next winter so I can't wait too long. Tomorrow morning I can add the first border and then Thursday I can add the second border. The top will be all ready to show at the Friday meeting of The Breakfast Club.
Now that siggies are done, I can work on my Faye Anderson blocks at night again. Here are the last four I have completed. We are in week fifteen of this year and I have nine blocks completed. That means that if I can pick up the pace a bit I can get caught up and perhaps even a week or two ahead.... I have never done much embroidery on quilt blocks before but I am satisfied that the work is adequate. I asked that Homestead Hearth include one of their grab bags of fabric with my "Road Less Traveled" block of the month. That is the fabric I am using for my Faye Anderson blocks. I have two other quilts I will be using the grab bag fabric for. I can sit all evening and pour over my collection of fabric and deciding which to use in each block.
Here is the third block of row one of "The Road Less Traveled". If you like jigsaw puzzles, you would enjoy putting this block together. The great advantage of having this as a BOM is that I don't have to agonize over exactly which fabric to put in each spot. If I had to do that I would never get the block done. Homestead Hearth is doing a wonderful job of fabric selection for me. I am thinking about signing up for another one of their BOM's that is starting in June.
