I'm humbled by the number of bloggers that hopped here, left thoughtful comments, and shared their Jelly Roll experiences and patterns. There were so many great Jelly Roll pattern suggestions... Oh HOW will I make them all ;)
Before we celebrate our winner(s) -- let me say that I've had computer troubles all week... So we finally gave in and purchased a low end laptop that will
hopefully provide some reliability for my blogging, tutorials and patterns (thankfully I've been $saving$ for it). Any proud owner of a Windows 8 computer knows it comes with a whole lot of learning curve... I can do this! I know I can... Thanks for listening and for your patience.
A peak at the progress made on Quilting the Garden blocks since I last wrote. You can read more about Quilting the Garden (by Blackbird Designs) here and here.
Block 1 is ready for this sweet little bird to be appliquéd. The bird is fussy cut from the border fabric by 3 Sisters (Sentiments I think). Isn't he darling ? I plan to place these birds Broderie Perse style here and there on the blocks. Have I mentioned I'm addicted to birds ?
Below Coneflowers #2 and #3 and a new leaf were completed on the Autumns Hurrah block. Yippee!
For those of you on the lookout for the needle turn appliqué tutorial I promised -- thanks for your patience... I'm making progress. I think I will post in sections and plan to get section 1 out this weekend.
