It was especially nice to sit with my stitching this morning. It feels like such a busy time lately that I feel fortunate to have a hobby that takes me out of the busy times and allows me to just "be".
I've been poking away at this block, which is one of the Sarah Fielke BOM's for 2018, Simple Folk...
My go-to method of doing circles is not conducive to fussy-cutting. I'm not terribly fond of my circles on this block....it would have been a perfect opportunity to test the Appliquick method. Oh well, I'm sure there will be more opportunity in this quilt to try it...I'll live with this block, warts and all.
I'll be going on a Quilt Retreat this week and, of course, I've packed way too much....but it is good to have choices!
I hope to get the pieced blocks for Simple Folk somewhat started. This is what they will look like...
This is the big weekend of our guild's Quilt show in Simcoe, Ontario.
We had a wonderful start on Friday....and then a huge wind storm blew in with gusts of up to 120km winds.
About an hour before the show was to finish up for the day the electricity went out at the venue and we had to close early.....and the power didn't come on again 'til mid-Saturday!
So, the show did not open on Saturday....we are having the second day today. Thanks to social media, we're hoping that the word has spread.
I haven't even had a chance, myself, to take in all the quilts, as on Friday I was volunteering at the show's boutique booth. So I'll be looking forward to seeing the show today....as well as meeting a couple of fellow bloggers!
I did whip around quickly before the show started on Friday to get pictures of my quilts hanging. I love the look of my Tula Pink City Sampler and look forward to it finally being on my bed after the show...
I'm still happy with the coral sashing....even though I originally went to Quilt Junction looking for grey fabric!
One of our vendors specializes in EPP, Eagle's Wings Quilts....and she also happens to be a blogger who links up with Slow Sunday Stitching!
I haven't done much EPP in a couple of years, but I do love to do it, so I picked up this pattern to start at some point...
That's it for today...wish us luck on a successful day at the quilt show! I hope it works out after all the hard work everyone has put in :)
I am linking up with Kathy at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.
