Still on the Ark

The joke is probably getting a bit tired now.....but I am out of inspiration, so it will continue until the end of the year.

Over summer I hope to get a couple of quilts to the quilter (they have been collecting dust for months) and Phebe is my project to finish. Too soon to decide what else 2013 will bring, but I'm looking forward to a fresh start for the new year.

So what two blocks have I got to show you today?

Block 3 from the Caswell quilt:


I'm enjoying this project so much, and it's giving me an excuse to buy some new fabric.  Always makes me happy.....I know you will agree.

Second project is the finished Block 8 from Imperial Blooms:


Quite a bit of stitching on this one, but it was so much fun.  Here's a close up:



Yesterday we attended the last CAG meeting for the year.  Such a great day, it's just the therapy I need. The group has become so popular, that a larger venue was needed, and it was still full!

I hope your Christmas preparations are all going well.

Much happiness,

Deb

I like the first applique block in this post. The fabric for the leaves is a nice one. Not what I would have expected for leaves but it works well.

I am doing caswell and starting imperial blooms in march with a local quilt shop! I love both. Curious if you are using fusible for either? Seam a steam or misty fuse?
