First, last Saturday's civil war block #43 is finished. It is named the Right Hand of Friendship.
I'm a much happier camper now that I replaced the batting in the fall flannel quilt with Mountain Mist Cream Rose batting. Also, while trying to decide how to quilt it, I went to Sally Terry's site and found my solution! Her book "Hooked on Feathers" has been recommended and while I didn't want to do feathers on this quilt, I wanted to see if she had any tutorials on her web site. I clicked around for a while and came to a downloadable PDF file on "Terry Twist Squares" which proved to be my answer! It's perfect for 9-patches! If anyone wants to see the PDF file, when you open her web site, scroll down and click on the hyperlink that says, "Take up extra fabric with stencils video" and when you get to that page, scroll down to where it says, "Click here for downloadable PDF file." You can see what it looks like in the close up picture of some of the blocks. It went quite fast and easy!
Saturday, Jennifer and I will be meeting at Love's home for a day of sewing! We are really looking forward to it and I will post some pictures of our day (if I remember the camera)! Hope you have a productive sewing weekend also!
