Getting some stuff done.
Finally getting to some of my own quilting. Everything had been on hold since I was working on the wedding quilt.
I have five blocks prepped and ready to stitch for the Beyond the Cherry Tree Quilt Album (that's how far behind I am).
#15 through #19 have all the pieces (or almost all) glue basted down with Roxanne's glue. These aren't in any specific order.
This next one requires numerous cherries/grapes and from what I have heard there are over a hundred.
This next one doesn't have all its pieces glued down as there are way too many and some of them are layered so I didn't want them falling off while I was working on the block.
In between all this prepping, I made another "star birthday block" for my exchange and it is ready to be mailed.
What a good feeling to be sewing for myself again. Just maybe I can make a dent in my sewing room that seems to have been ignored for quite some time.
Hope to be back soon with a finished block.....or two.
