I have been busy.... sewing that is! Completed 81 double hourglass blocks. This project will be an album of my bright happy fabrics.
|actually.... I have made more than 85 of these 8 inch blocks|
I haven't decided exactly how big this quilt will be. But it should be at least twin-sized, or maybe full. I love this pattern! I am making small ones now which are sooo sweet.
|These blocks are only 4 inches. so cute!|
|Here is a sampling of wooden spools I won at this week's Silent Auction.|
|Our quilt guild in Ridge Meadows held a silent auction last Tuesday. These are some of my treasures that I bid hard for & won ~ I adore these metal bobbins, they almost make me want to pull out my old Kenmore sewing machine!|
|A lot of members donated old notions from their sewing rooms - I loved the old vintage instructions on this Dritz Ezy-Hem. This was a great fundraiser, alot of great old sewing notions were quickly snapped up. All proceeds are for our guild library!|
I love these pieces of check fabrics - $1.00 for the three of them.
Here are more wooden spools of thread. I find looking at these very comforting. When did they stop putting thread on wooden spools anyways?
