A post from Kelli–
You may have noticed that I haven’t been “around” much lately. But have no fear, I haven’t wandered far! Mom and I are always looking for new ways to expand our blog readership to share our hobbies and quilts with more and more people. To do so, I’ve been working on a few projects that we have to keep secret. But don’t you worry…as soon as we can let you in on what I’ve been working on I will.
In the midst of all of the “deadline” sewing, I got a little bit stressed and needed some “me” sewing time. I went through a few of my works in progress and when I found my version of Jamestown Landing that I started making with various French General lines, I knew what I was going to be working on.
The Jamestown landing quilt can be found in Bonnie Hunter’s fourth book, String Fling. I’m making mine with leftovers from French General fabric that Mom and I have from making these two quilts. Mom has also made this quilt with the traditional blue and neutral fabric shown in Bonnie’s book.
After sewing on this quilt for a few hours this past weekend, I think I’m definitely going to be taking a bit more “me” time for sewing on quilts with no deadlines!
YUM! I’m liking the looks of that! Can’t wait to see the finished quilt.
I took Bonnie’s Jamestown Landing class at Hershey last month. I am making mine in the traditional colors as well. After I take a Bonnie class the projects generally become my Leader/Ender projects. I just finished Tumelo Trails that way and I am now working on Smith Mountain Morning from my class with Bonnie in 2012. Next up….Jamestown Landing. It is always important to take some “ME” sewing time. You feel as if you are on vacation!
