There are so many quilts in progress here that the solution was obvious: start a new one! These are the first three blocks for Black Bird Lane from The Rabbit Factory:
Now wouldn't you think that there would be lots of fabrics to choose from for this quilt from this lovely fabric collection:
Well, there are some nice ones but not enough for one this scrappy. So I had a ball choosing fabrics Saturday at the LQS. Thanks to Kathy for her great help in choosing fabrics. She is planning to make this quilt herself and had chosen the fabrics for hers and it was all in her head. She showed us the central portion of one of Lori Smith's Christmas applique quilts that she is making, one of those really intricate ones, and it was just gorgeous. Her hand applique stitching is absolutely invisible.
Have some really heavy-duty household work to do these next few weeks, and I really resent having to spend time on keeping the house together rather than quilting but it must be done.
