As I was going through my quilting magazines, I came across one that Janet O. had sent me along with some other things - I think I won her give-a-way. It was a Miniature Quilts Magazine (of course). She had also sent me the paper piecing pattern for the flags below which came from that magazine. When I saw it in the magazine, I got the urge to make a couple. The stripes are 1/8" and the whole flag measures 4" square. Of course, I goofed and started with white at the top instead of red, but these were test blocks anyway. I've never done any PP that had pieces this skinny! Not even with my DJ quilt!! I don't know what I'll do with them yet - possibly use them for labels on the back of patriotic lap quilts for veterans.
The latest Mode Blockhead blocks. The appliqué pieces are ironed on, but not stitched yet.
This is the finished project that I showed part of in the last post. This is also a "Test" and is a wall hanging. I have more of the blocks that came in a panel. Quite a few, in fact, so I am trying to decide how to use them. I think I'll re-figure it if I make another one. I do like the flying geese though!
It seems like a lot of my friends have seen that we are having a heat wave and it's supposed to get up to 106º today! We don't like it that hot at all, but we're thankful that the hot weather doesn't last very long here.
One of the chores that has to be done here due to all the rain that we get, is to clean the moss build up on the roof and we had that done this week. What a mess!! You can see it on the driveway. But it also got all over our flowers, and bushes that are along the front and back of our house. I even had to wash off each of my geranium leafs individually as they were coated with black stuff.
