Well, I did it...
joined in another Sew Along!
I have SOOOOOO many quilt projects that I've already started.
And twice that many more that I'd like to get to Someday.
But, when I saw all the fun that my quilter friends were getting into
with the Gwennie Inspired Medallion QAL
I dropped ahem, maybe a few things,
and joined right in! lol
On June 6th, I saw that Lori (Humble Quilts blog)
posted a link-y page for everyone that had wanted to join
in the Gwen Marston Inspired Sew Along.
The link-y page is to share the Basket Blocks that had been made.
At that time there were only 5 or 6 people that had a finished block for their quilt center.
I visited each of those blogger's posts and kept thinking I Don't Need Another Project.
I DON'T Need Another Project!
Famous last words...
The next day - the 7th, I grabbed scraps and
join in for the fun!!!
Scissors, scraps, applique pins, needle and thread, and four days later I have THIS:
I scissor cut everything freehand. Needle-turned the applique, and perfectly imperfect!
I love it!!! It is Gwennie inspired!
Like others that have joined in on this, I've known of Gwen from magazine articles that she contributed to Lady's Circle Patchwork (1980's I believe); also from her great quilt books and quilt
pictures, but I'd never met her in person. Since she's been such an
inspiration to my quilting life, and I've also been inspired by Lori, Cynthia, Cathy, Katy, and Wendy - the gals that came up with this GREAT Sew Along, I decided, I guess I DO NEED to start another project...
Then I saw this picture on Wendy's blog:
Clinched it! It's Totally me!!!
The next 'round' for the medallion basket is 'Childhood Memories', chosen by Cynthia!
More fun to share the beginning of July!
