I didn’t get a lot done this week…well at least for me. I ended with a lot of time behind the computer. We had some more family time than usual squeezed into the week too.
Here I’m helping Carver practice reading. He’s a smart cookie. Can you believe he’s four and really doing a good job? Right now we are just working on Dick and Jane books.
Kelli stayed one night and we tried to stitch…
Georgie was reading books while we stitched. She loves books.
But back to my quilting…
I told you a couple of weeks ago that I submitted a quilt to American Patchwork and Quilting. It’s a Spring quilt with Tulips. For now, I’m calling it Tulip Bed. Who knows what the magazine will call it. I’m in love with the quilt and can’t wait to tell you the whole story about it complete with LOTS of pictures. For now, I can show you this…yep, there are some chain blocks in the pattern.
Moda Fabrics was AWESOME and sent me what I need for the quilt beside the scrappy red fabrics. The second it arrived in the mail, I was cutting away.
I did manage to film a video this week. It’s a Sew with Jo. I am working on sewing the nine patches in the video. You can click to play or you can watch it HERE on the big screen.
My morning project that I’m working on is this simple block quilt for Karl. I had hoped to get it into a top, but computer work kept me from the sewing machine. Oh well…
I did make some progress so I’m going to celebrate that!!
Did you see the sneak peek of the Christmas quilt that was shipped out last week?
It’s one of those weeks when last week’s goals become this week’s goals. I’ll be honest, I had some lofty goals!! It was a reality check week. We all have them.
I did submit yet another quilt to American Patchwork and Quilting. This is after the Tulip Bed quilt. This one is called Maker’s Market. I did some background work for it getting fabric ordered and figured out. More on this quilt to come. I’m on a roll with American Patchwork and I’m loving it. I hope you have a subscription as there are going to be lots of quilts from Jo’s Country Junction in the next year!
