350 block project

Through  Prairie Moon Quilts I have been participating in the 350 block project.  This has inspired me to keep better track of the block I make.  It also tens to have me upping my productivity close to the end of each month.

I have been inconsistent in posting.  I have been gardening more.  I have been playing with Rob Appell Man Sewing's  checker cross... and my 2.5 inch scraps using  Miss Star Quilts split rail star.

I just keep pulling the fabric out and sewing..

Lions and Tigers and Bears Oh my!!!

It has been a busy month.  I participated in a free motion work shop that managed to get me over the hump. Than I went to a retreat and free motioned two baby quilts. Than the turn around had me spending two days with my college room mates. .... who are not clothies like me.

The class with Eliz Busch left me with lovely hand made fabrics and a burnign desire to get my small art quilt completed...  tired!!!

I completed the two red and white squares , but turned them in before taking a photo. So I guess you will see them when the donation quilt is finished.
I have drifted into a variety of quilts.  I learned how to make the prairie braid, which is foundation pieced. I plan to back up and finish that quilt and put it away.Today is going to be a clean up and put away day.
I have really enjoyed putting away fabric in the new piece of furniture that is especially designed for fabric.

February can be a challenge in Central Maine.  We are in this snow... break more snow pattern.  We have 18 inches promised for tomorrow.  Fun events cancelled left and right.


have gotten the 12 paper pieced blocks bordered and if I have my design wall up they would be doing the design dance.

I have been storm locked.  I had an art quilt ( self portrait that used some of this rather boring red in it...) I got a version done...and they cancelled the meeting.  I designed and finished one more Penobscot County block ( Steven Kings house) than started on Dorothea Dix...I found that pink valentine quilt also with the wonky crosses and have it in my air traffic control circling. I said yes to a three day retreat in Jackman Maine 135 for everything... food etc.. Sorry I could not resist...
