Not much sewing going on

I have been so busy putting up apples, okra, tomatoes, green beans and eggplant that I have not  been in the sewing room much, but doesn't all these jars look beautiful.

I have been trying to getting some piecework ready to take with me on the 3 days shop hop bus trip I'll be going on. So I'll take some knitting and these applique blocks.

The pattern is from this book and I know mine looks like theirs. Sometimes I see something that I just love and I cannot think outside the box. I have seen example of this pattern in antique quilts in different colors but I just love the black. You do not see much done in 30's black.
There is this one that has yellow points http://www.quiltindex.org/basicdisplay.php?kid=4C-83-402

and then there are ones like this one that have red points http://www.quiltindex.org/basicdisplay.php?kid=57-90-724

And this one has a neat use of changing the the whole look on this pattern http://www.quiltindex.org/basicdisplay.php?kid=4A-7F-B78

So I have only tonight to try to get these ready to applique and  take with me tomorrow. No rush, all I have to do is still pack, make another pouch and these. Ya  right

I'll have time to work on these in between the shops that we are going to, 11 in all in 3 days. I'm going to try to use my i-Phone to send posts on my blog, so we'll see if I can do it. If so I plan on showing each of the shops we stop at.

Till next time


  1. Everything is lovely!!! Oh, the canned goods are divine! We had no garden produce this year because of the heat! Love the quilt blocks! It will be a lovely quilt! A real treasured heirloom!
    Have fun on the shop hop!!


  2. What industry! Your appliqué block is a knock-out!
    best, nadia


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
