Though our neck of the woods here in Wisconsin has not received the 3 feet of snow as New England has, we still have our share of winter - with everything from cold rains, icy mix to good old fashion white snow. Events have been cancelled and rescheduled. A typical February in other words. All this leads to time spent at home = sewing room time.
I won't bore you with photos of the continuing lines of hand quilting on the Cherry Tree quilt - but do note the word "continuing" - progress is definitely being made and the quilt is beginning to take on its new life. As for the Wedding Quilt - the blocks are almost complete & soon will be joined in rows. And that must remain under wraps for now:o) See that sketch on the graph paper? That is simply to make sure the blocks get oriented correctly in each row. I have been known to flip log cabin blocks when assembling the rows - yikes!
Soooo - what can I share with you on this slushy, snowy morning in the north woods? If you were heading outside you would definitely need to.............
Were you quilting back in 1994? Did you like the country/lodge look that was popular? There were some group quilts made at my old quilt shop and this was a popular one.
On this Country Threads pattern we each took a section & made 12 units then exchanged with each other in the group. It has always been a favorite of mine. Have loss touch with a couple of the ladies but most of us still see and or stitch together frequently. Such fun memories!
I still have the original pattern book ...
That is my Blast From the Past - do you have a favorite "oldie but goodie" quilt you bring out from time to time or use frequently?
That is all for now from Taylorsoutback - wishing each of you a good week - if you are still shoveling out - be safe and stay cozy. If you are enjoying warm sunshine, grab some for us snowbound northerners
