Dawn to the Rescue
I have a funny. As some of you know, every time I run into a quilting crisis I contact Dawn and she figures my problem out for me. She also gives me great color advice, etc. Last week Bonnie posted a fantastic string quilt. I loved it but immediately thought that I would want to avoid the set in seams. I thought about emailing Dawn to see if she knew how to make 8 pointed stars without set in seams but figured I had better give her a break, so I googled my question. Guess what, google led me to Dawn’s site where I got my answer. Now isn’t that crazy! So I ended up emailing Dawn anyway and she has instructed me on how to proceed. I figured before I was to start another project I need to finish some up. I have so many near the last stages and have just set them aside. This weekend was very productive for me. I finished 4 full size quilt tops, made my doll quilt swap top for my December swap and put together this little pumpkin quilt top. I also got all my little pieces sewed into blocks from my previous post and I am now in the process of tearing the paper off. That is definitely not a fun job!
Last week at Sossity’s she gifted me with this wonderful little embroidered pumpkin block. I just love it. It is so primitive looking. I fretted all week as to what I should do with it and decided that all it needed was a nice frame. It will be my next little hand quilting project.
