At last, back to quilting.
These are the latest squares made for my Dear Dorothy Jane. Some of them are from the Dear Jane blocks but some of them I drafted because they appealed to me. It will be interesting to see them all put together. The squares on the left are pieced with the corner stones and sashing I am going to use. I plan on adding a 4.5 inch border with applique as well...just can't resist.
This is the other thing that has been on going around here for the last 3 weeks. We've been a whole year without a deck and although we didn't miss it during the winter, we would have loved to have it this past summer. Unfortunately, our builder was booked solid and could only get to us this past month. He does really good work and we are delighted with the construction. This is on the second story of our home and as a result required extra support. It is solid! We'll enjoy it next summer...
And this is the other reason I've been too busy to blog. Our quilt show was held last weekend. This show is not judged with the exception of People's Choice and here is my ribbon. I am sooo pleased. This is Sylvia's Stars. It's nice to really like your quilts yourself , after all, you wouldn't do them if you didn't, but it is a bonus when others do too.
