Cancel your weekend plans and ….no wait, that was something for a winter blog when you "got" to stay inside and quilt. Now is the time to get outside, garden, go to art fairs, take long walks, plan picnics. Have some summer fun!
Since there is a lot to be done outside my house right now, I don’t have too much to show you. These two blocks are all that I’ve accomplished this week. On Stash Manicure blog, Marjorie of Appliqué Addict talked about lessons she has learned while quilting. I personally subscribe to #6, which is what I did when making these two blocks for the Around The World Quilting Bee Round #1. This first block is for Paloma. This is her final block and I’ve mailed her quilt to her. I bet she’ll be thrilled with her quilt. There are so many talented women in this group. (You’ll have to go to the Stash Manicure blog and scroll down to Stash Quilt Lesson’s Learned to see what #6 is.)

This block is for Aimee of Salt Marsh Designs. There were so many beautiful colors in her quilt and most of the block designs seemed to involve curves (can you see me sewing curves?). I had a difficult time choosing fabrics and design. I hope she likes this block. I had fun making it. As with Paloma’s block, I had to make some adjustments to the pattern, too, since I didn’t want to cover up too much of that lovely blue fabric. I think I’m done with Round #1 now, so it’s on to Round 2. I just received Paloma’s blocks today so I hope to add my block to it so I can get it in the mail Monday.
Here’s something you might find of interest. Beadlust has a free e-book that you can download. It’s about exploring creativity with bead embroidery.

Until next time,
