And now for the jealousy part...I talked to my sister tonight and she said she is going to Kentucky for the quilt show. "You mean PADUCAH?" I exclaimed. Yep, the very same. J-e-a-l-o-u-s spells "I wanna go too, wah!" Well, living in St. Louis means she's a lot closer to Kentucky than I am so I guess its alright. But we're looking forward to another trip to the International Quilt Festival in Long Beach in late July. Anyone else planning to be there?
On the sewing/quilting front, I have now partially prepped two wool applique blocks for Greenpiece and cut out all the backgrounds. Some of the pieces are so tiny I'm already getting palpitations about having to buttonhole quilt around them. Seriously, one looks like a hole punch dot, and there are three stars no bigger than a nickel. Maybe I'll put those pieces on at the end, after I've gotten a lot more practice with my buttonhole work. Gulp.
In other news, the following is the last "squishy" item I got in the mail.
These are my received swap blocks for the Jewel Box swap through the Quiltbiddies Yahoo Group I belong to. One gal who allegedly held up the swap included some fat quarters with her package, so sweet of her!
Pardon me if I have shown this pic before of the finished center of the Quilts for Kids.org kit quilt. Now to get the borders on and get it put together. I found a perfect sized piece of batting in the leftovers pile so that's sorted.
