Can you believe that January is already almost half over with? That might be a slight exaggeration but it is almost one-third over.
Happy Wednesday – Blockheads Edition 45.
Double Dutch by Jo Morton. The quilt block, not the jump-rope game. Did you ever play that? I did and while I could keep a really good pace by myself, I always messed up with tandems. And songs? Terrible.
I’m better with the quilt block.
As with the Fig Tree block, I substituted a different background for the corner triangles on the inside geese to add another pinwheel to the block. These fabrics are from Snowberry by 3 Sisters and Lexington by Minick & Simpson.
Question of the Week ~ Do you have any exciting plans or adventures on your calendar for 2018?
Every day is an exciting adventure! That’s the easy answer. I have a few trips planned and a few “maybes”. The Quilted Moose in Nebraska in a few weeks and Old Town Fabric Shop in Ohio in March. Market in Portland? Probably. But since I try not to assume…
The most exciting thing I know of for sure is the ReStore and Quiltstock retreats here in Dallas in July. I know… Dallas in July. But it’s going to be a lot of fun – quilting, stitching, fun and games and some surprises. Lisa Bongean will be here. So will Me & My Sister – Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobson. The Martingale folks will be here. And Kathy Schmitz!
