This month, I moved the Quilt Top in a Shoe Box project along. I finished my Texas Block. This block was based on an older block called Texas Centennial Star. It was machine appliqued, paper pieced and hand appliqued.
The first half of February is finished for the Temperature Quilts. We are away until the beginning of March, so I’ll be late getting the rest of the month done.
My new favorite thing. I purchased a panel showing all of the Kona Cotton colors. These are my favorite solids. I have no where to hang it! So, I may make it up into a shade to cover and protect my fabric bins. Watch this space.
This month I read, and finished, the very long book,”Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone” by Diana Gabaldon. The latest in her Outlander Series.
The title inspired me to finish the Queen Bee Embroidery and it will become the centerpiece of a hexies quilt. Photos below show me auditioning fabrics and the container that I use to carry my work around. These will go with me to California.
This metal piece is a thread cutter, made to be worn as a necklace. It’s airplane friendly
