Like many of you, I couldn’t wait to see what the first step in Bonnie Hunter’s new En Provence Mystery quilt and start working on it. Neutrals……that is something I always look for when I visit a quilt shop and if I can find them on sale….I’ll buy yards.
I am challenging myself to work on En Provence even though I have lots of other things I’m working on. Most of the time I work with batiks and I have all these totes of quilt fabric scraps that I want to use.
Bonnie’s quilts are always perfect for that. Notice I even have a tote of salvage strips…..a project for another day. There is even a t-shirt quilt that I keep putting off working on….a project for another day.I cut out some of the squares and started working on my blocks…..I have many more to go but….who is counting. Are you working on En Provence?
Leaders and Enders, I have to laugh as I have a hard time with them…..I cut up all the scraps I had and put them in the bin next to my sewing machine so I could grab one or two when sewing.
Well, this weekend I pulled out some flannels I bought last year (probably about this time as Joann’s runs such great deals on them) and of course I haven’t used them so I cut some of them up to add to my flannel scrap Leaders and Enders quilt.Did I mention that little Sadie is now sleeping with us? I guess that means she is officially part of the family.
That is my old Log Cabin quilt that I showed earlier and yes, we use it on our bed. I looked back through my posts and remembered that I didn’t mention much about finding Sadie at first as we wanted to surprise Builder Bob’s mom when we went to visit her.
I am definitely going to do a detailed Sadie post soon. Did I mention that she “almost” has us trained…..
I forgot to share a photo from the baby shower where I gifted this baby quilt. I think she really liked it. That is what is going on in my studio this week.
