In my defense, look at this quilt all finished.
How could I resist? The blocks are 3″ x 3″ and quilt finishes at 21″ x 27″. I love it. I don’t know if I will ever finish the quilt, but I do know I am going to try at least one log cabin block. If I hate it really bad, I will turn the block into a pincushion. If I hate it just a little bit, I might make another block. If I love the block SO much that I can ignore how much I dislike the paper piecing, then I just may finish the quilt. I still can’t believe I bought a paper piecing pattern especially after all my rants about not liking paper piecing. I still don’t like it….but oh, I love that little quilt. It’s a masterpiece. I wish you could see it in person, you probably would have bought the pattern too. It’s that darn cute.
I also bought the frame for this wool project.
I’ve had the pattern and have wanted to make it. Remember that I keep insisting that I want to finish some wool projects. I figured if I bought the frame, I’d be more likely to finish the project. Here’s what that project will look like all finished.
I still love this.
I also bought some glue so I can finish up some punch needle projects I have around here. There are two charm packs there too…
They are packaged up so nicely. The label says, “The Good, The Bad & the Ugly.” Being the word “ugly” was in bold. That means that the charm squares in the package are suppose to be ugly. I haven’t opened the packages up yet but from what I can see they are just great. I only picked the “ugly” packages. The “good” packages and the “bad” packages, were more expensive. The cheapskate in me decided to go with the “uglies” and save money.
It was a great trip to Country Threads…My goal is to have one paper pieced block done before I go back to Country Threads again (I know it’s a SMALL goal but at this point, I’d be happy if I made just one..remember it’s me and it’s paper piecing. One is good.)…oh, I need to finish a wool project by then too.
