It's been a long time since I posted because I bought a house. And while it was being remodeled I was living out of a box or two at different friends homes. Everything I own was in storage. I finally moved in recently and escrow finally closed. The top picture is about a year ago when this whole process started. The 2nd pic was about a month ago and the third pic was taken yesterday. It is a work in progress for sure. So much to do and so little money! So quilting has taken a very far back seat in my life at this point. In fact while boxing up my quilting supplies to store I realized i had more of it than I could ever use. I will definitely be scaling down in the near future. But for now my focus is both the interior and exterior of this place. The back yard is huge and is completely dirt. no grass, nothing. The grass in the front is just weeds. I want to do a low water, landscape without lawn. All I need is time and money!
Kathleen Tracy of Sentimental Quilter showed that she got a grab bag from Homestead Hearth and so I thought I had to have one too.
This book by Lynette Anderson is a wonderful book. I love dogs and it has a great dog pattern that I have been meaning to make for quite some time. I love this quilt and would like to make it someday.
Here is the 200% pattern
And here is the freezer paper torn off.
Kathy Schmitz had a block of the month going on I had to find it! It can be found at Colonial Crafts in MA. I am a huge fan of her work and bought 3 of her patterns for the BOM. I believe it starts in March and goes until Feb next year. I have a few projects that need to get done before I start but I am looking forward to starting these .
