New Project

I know I need to get some of the quilts quilted that I have finished but I keep forgetting to purchase batting and I'm down to a piece about 32 3/4" x 25 1/2".

Betsy blogged about this quilt yesterday and I want one. lol So Betsy and I emailed back and forth several times, then I got busy starting on my blocks. My unfinished blocks will be 6 1/2"x6 1/2" since most of my embroidery designs stitch out at 4" x 4". It takes 128 blocks and the quilt was designed by Dale Ritson. Betsy and I are going to call our quilt Things That I Love.

If you would like to send a block for my quilt I would love for my friends to be a part of my quilt. I will send a block of the same size to anyone who sends me block. If you don't have my address, I will email it to you. Any background color, any technique as long as the unfinished block is 6 1/2" x 6 1/2".

A pretty bra
A little dog that reminds me of Mary Lou.
Chocolate ice cream cone
I love Old World Santa's. It didn't turn out exactly the way it was in my mind.
I have a list of designs I want to do and I'm really excited about this quilt.

Here is a sneak peek at what else my embroidery machine is doing.
My embroidery machine worked for 6 hrs yesterday. I got worried it was going to go on strike. lol

Happy quilting

I was thinking about this all day yesterday as well! I would love to make you a block - I already know what I want to do! I'll work on it this week! Now, to start my own!

You blocks are off to a fine kick start!
