URGH.....

Sick, Sick, Sick! I should be sleeping, but I can't put my head to the pillow with out feeling like my brains are going to fall out- so I thought I'd share my latest little obcession. In November '09 our shop's order contained one copy of the book The Farmer's Wife as well as a couple copies of Teach Yourself Blocks from the Past. Both books feature 6.5" blocks and work well as companions to each other. I was so inspired by this that I proposed to run a club at the shop where others who share my passion for this kind of "historical" quilting could come and spend time working on blocks together. Isn't that what quilting is all about- learning, sharing, friendship?
I am totally hooked on these little blocks and just wanted to share what is finding their way onto my design wall!! What do you think?



After a nap, I think I may put a few more sashings on my charming project of the month (Baking Day by Lynda Hall) so that it can come off the guest bed, ready for hand quilting. I'd at least like to offer one semi-finish for this month. I think I commited to just finishing the top. Then I can work on those ladder blocks and check off another UFO from way too long ago.
