Had a quick peek to see how it got along with January, February, and March's blocks...
and I added a few green units to my growing pile of multi-coloured piano keys for the border.
I'm heading to the Ocean Waves Quilt Society's AGM in Sydney early Saturday morning(on the road by 6:30 am) so will link up at So Scrappy when I get back Saturday night. Every Saturday of the month Angela hosts a linky party on her blog for us to show our colour projects. Hope you'll pay her a visit!
And while you're surfing the net, I'll be working the registration desk, attending the business meeting, purchasing treasures from the quilt shop vendors, and oohing and aahing over Nova Scotian quilt artist Laurie Swim's trunk show. I'll be in quilt heaven...
But before I sign off, a few more notes...I'm all caught up with Barbara Brackman's Grandmother's Choice BOW. There are to be 49 blocks and I have 34 made. I did substitute a few blocks, choosing blocks she had already posted in her 2011 Civil War BOM. Here are the latest...
Block 32. Contrary Husband
Block 33. Mr. Roosevelt's Necktie
Substitute Block: Log Cabin
Substitute Block:North Star
I have lots more going on in the sewing corner. I'm especially having fun with the 9-patches and sashing for my Country Charmer quilt. I'll be back on May 1 to show you my CC progress to date and invite you to link up that day with designer "extraordinaire" Lynn from Sewn Wild Oaks and all the quilters participating in this no stress, laisy daisy CCQAL. If you haven't yet joined us, there's lots of time left. We're hoping to have a parade of our finished quilts and/or flimsies in November. But for now, all we want is to see your progress. Make sure you check out Lynn's blog...she says there are some CC kits still available for purchase and they are gorgeous! You can see them HERE.
It's a great day for quilting!
