Lest the reader have come to believe that this writer no longer sews and quilts, let us set the record straight!
"Summer Hours" have begun at work and this is the second week of them. During the school year, I work from 7:30 or 8:00 until 4:00 most days. Some days longer. But during winter break, spring break, and summer break, we are blessed with shorter workdays.
And, of course, I have been sewing away. Nothing is quite ready to share just yet, but know that I've been working on the baby quilt for Tom and Anastasia's friends, Matt and Ann and it will soon be ready to show you. I've also cut and pieced all 120 of the swap blocks for the Quilt for Melanie Wilkes. And the quilt that reader Amy named Emancipation Proclamation is ready to have the blocks sewn into rows. So there is great potential for a Major Reveal in the next few days. Then there's a nine-patch quilt -- someone in blogland suggested people join her in making nine patches and set them with nice plain white sashing; I had some fabrics left over from a recent quilt and have been working on that little project, too. I wish I could remember who she was -- I'd give her a link.
Yes, I guess I do have a relatively short attention span.
Today what I'm sharing is my current leader-ender project. There are two different six-inch blocks, and I need 60 of each. A perfect leader-ender, wouldn't you say? The finished quilt will be for Caroline when she moves into her big girl bed in another six or nine months.
