Not enough hours in the day! The countdown in on until my son's wedding on Daydream Island on September 10th. Not enough time to get all the quilts done I a) need to get done and out of the way and b) need to get done to get some money in to help pay for the trip/holiday/wedding outfit....etc etc.
Head on over to my old friend Glenice's blog for yet another generous giveaway, she is celebrating her 300th post!
This week I did manage to finish the lovely Rachel's gorgeous quilts. I wanted to keep this one!!!Rachel's version of Lime and Soda with "Bubbles" quilted on it.
I was very lucky and Rachel and I did some bartering and I ended up with five new Melly and Me patterns.......Mrs Perkins, Fido, 1941, Elly and Phoebe. I can't wait to make them all up. If I am lucky enough to get some more quilts from Rachel I might get a book next time!
Rachel's lovely stitchery quilt has "Heartstrings" quilted on it. A very appropriate pattern for this quilt.
I also have Charlie's fabrics all ready to go but haven't yet done her organizer, so I have to get organized!
I did start to put some of Lissa's and my tumbler blocks together. I have done 8 rows of 20 across and it doesn't even look like I made a dent in our tumblers!!! As Lissa keeps telling me I think this is going to be a humungous quilt. It isn't turning out quite as I had imagined as there are a lot more lights than I thought I would have preferred some more mediums used as lights.
