Good Morning Quilters!
I played hooky this week from the internet. Didn’t respond to your comments, didn’t comment on any of your blogs…..I am sorry. But I have great progress on an ancient UFO so I hope you will forgive me. The Jane Stickle quilt (in the Bennington, Vermont museum) has been a favorite of mine since I started quilting long ago. (Info here)
Well, this week I hauled out all of my blocks that have been constructed for some time, and decided it is time to put them together into a quilt top. I am making great progress in assembling the quilt, and have one more border of triangles, and two corner kites yet to attach. I have learned so much over the years, by making blocks for this quilt, and when I visited the museum, I just sat next to it, admiring it for the longest time. I don’t remember seeing anything else in the museum, it was that special to me.
And soon, I will have my own version of her wonderful quilt to look at. Here is a picture of my design wall today:
Every once in a while something wonderful happens, and getting this quilt moving along to the finish line was wonderful for me. I hope you are having wonderful happenings this week also. It is the season for miracles!
We are traveling this week, and I am taking a small crocheting project with me, so I will have no quilting progress to report to you next Monday. However, with my iPhone in the car, as I sit in the passenger seat, I will have plenty of time to look at all of your blogs and see your progress. And post some comments. Thank you for being so faithful with our Design Wall Monday Linky Parties.
Sign up below, and let’s get this week’s party started!
