Here are the first three week's blocks on my design wall:
Barbara Brackman has an interesting blog with a great story each week about the women's suffragette movement, and also directions to make an 8 inch block.
It's here: http://grandmotherschoice.blogspot.com
The block for week 4 is out of my comfort zone, but I enjoy a challenge. Here's my beginning of it:
As you can see, this quilt will be a feast of cheddar fabrics!
I've also been practicing my machine quilting of feathers. I'd like to put little feathered wreaths in the white squares of the indigo and white doll quilt, as I've marked it:
Wouldn't that look great on here?
Some practice feathered wreaths are shown below, but they still need to be a little smaller than these.
Between working on the above projects, I'm tackling the weeds in my garden beds. Imagine me in a pith helmet with a knife the size of Crocodile Dundee's. I am ruthlessly attacking the weeds, and feel I am rescuing the little garden plants that have been fighting against the weeds all summer by themselves while I've been gone.
