Last night I completed my work on Nicki Lee’s All Things Pretty round robin block. It is a six-inch block and part of a “do your block round robin” hosted by World Wide Crazy Quilting. I love the colors Nicki Lee used which added to the pleasure of working on the block. There are a couple of things I tried with this round robin that are new to me. I’ve never embellished a silkie (the picture in the center). I laid aside my fear of messing it up and just did it. All in all…what I did worked. I also used the beaded fringe stitch for the first time. The fringe gives the block a bit of a 1920′s flavor.
Nicki Lee’s block…
Last month I went to my mailbox and found a delightful surprise when I looked inside. My friend Pam sent me a cheerful, fabric postcard for Valentine’s Day. It made me smile all the way back to the house. I tried to post a picture last month, but WordPress did not cooperate.
Receiving Pam’s card inspired me to make one to send to her…it’s my first.
That’s it for today…thank you for stopping by. I hope you let me know you’ve been here, and do come again.
Until next time…
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Psalm 23:4
