I used to cross stitch a lot. That was before I started quilting. So this project started about the time I started quilting. I wish I would have recorded the start date of this. I know that I used to work on it only on Tuesday nights when the Material Girls would meet at Pam's. After we stopped meeting on Tuesdays, I took it to work and swore I'd work on it on my lunch hours. And I did.
After consulting with a friend, I decided to use the left over linen fabric it was counted cross stitched on to pipe/bind. It's not very big but makes a perfect little fall pillow. (If I want, I can take the pillow form out and use as a wall hanging too.
So after doing a lot of spring cleaning yesterday, I was able to sit and sew and got caught up on all my BOM's. I finished the Farmer's Wife blocks last week some time and the rest I cut the pieces on Friday night so I was able to just sit and sew.
First - the Fat Quarter Shops BOM - this is block 11 - so one more month and then I can put the whole thing together.
Here's Pat Sloan's Block for April and all the pieces together so far.
And Blocks 7&8 for the Fall BOM.
Happy Easter to all.
Thanks for looking.
