This is my "Snowman Collector" that I made after Christmas and promised myself that I would have it finished for this coming Christmas. To make sure it got done , I committed to putting it in our Quilt Guild's show this coming fall. Shouldn't take me too long...good thing since the show is in September.
I've been working away on my Dear Jane blocks. I am slowly becoming a paper piecing fan...now that I caught on to the "tricks" of the trade. Precision is the word...make your points match and your sewing lines. Use a shorter tension and pay attention to the order of joining. It works. Taking the paper off is not as tiresome as it used to be....maybe I am getting some patience in my old age....lol.
I bound "Sylvia's Stars" tonight. It's been ready for some time to be bound but I just couldn't find the ambition(Dear Jane got in the way). You can't see the fabric I used very well in this photo but it is an orange/brownish batik and makes the quilt look very 'fallish'. It's one I will be keeping so it got put on our bed right away. Since Tigger decided she would rather sleep in her own bed at night now I can use some of my lighter quilts without consequence.
