It’s a holiday weekend in the US as we celebrate Labor Day.
Some consider Labor Day the official end of summer but we continue sailing until it’s too cold to be on the water. So, I’m leaving a few works in progress on the design wall as we head out to the lake looking for enough wind for sailing.
I’ve been trying out Marti Michell’s Long/Skinny Sashing ruler to set these sampler blocks together. Wouldn’t you know it – I am 3 1/2″ short on my inner border fabric so I couldn’t get it finished yesterday! Quilt shop run on the schedule for Tues! These blocks were made using the Marti Michell templates featured over the past year in the Marti and Me Club that I lead at Quilting Bits and Pieces in Eudora, KS.
When I cleaned up my sewing room to prepare for my guild’s tour of member’s sewing rooms, I made a list of 59 projects that I found scattered about the room in various stages of completion. I took a few of them with me on our “Quirky Kansas Tour” to have handwork to do in the car. I am happy to show you 4 finished projects. Don’t get too impressed though; that’s 4 down 55 to go!
I’m linking to The Patchwork Times today. Visit Design Wall Monday to see what others are working on!
