Pumpkin Block 1- Applique Prep

Last night I traced out everything, prepped the fabric, cut and basted. I think this pumpkin-crow block is adorable but I hate the top left corner of the pumpkin. I am going to take it apart and shave off a bit of that edge. It's just too weird looking.

Happy Summer!

It has been far far too long since my last post (January). Some of my blog posts were affected by the "bug" on Blogger, and I just got annoyed and gave up for 6 months.

I haven't had much time lately to quilt- my job is quite busy and demanding. When I get home, I just want to make supper then kick my feet up for the night. It is a huge stress reducer (unless you are watching TV, miscalculate and are now an inch short of fabric that came in a kit from 4 years ago!) so I have gotten back on the wagon.

A friend at my LQS had won a Jan Patek quilt kit a while back and she didn't like it and gave it to me (SCORE!).

I don't have a light box so I use the window for tracing. 

Love these homespun fabrics!

Downton Abbey

Have you seen Downton Abbey? It's a British period drama television show. It is super popular and we have been watching since it debuted. If there is one reason to watch this show, it is Dame Maggie Smith. She is amazing. I love her quick wits. Speaking of love- I LOVE my new Downton Abbey fabric (by Andover Fabrics) that I picked up this weekend. 10 FQs! No idea what I am going to do with them but they are gorgeous.

This week's progress on the baby quilt! The cat is starting to look more and more like a tabby ;)
