First, a correction. My DIL made the All About Me quilt. I only did the hand sewing on the binding. DIL did the rest of the quilt.
Now my dilemma. I started prepping two more appliqué blocks, but I can't seem to get motivated to work on them. I'm having second thoughts on how much I like appliqué or how good I can do it. So, I've started considering that maybe I could make some of the appliqué blocks into stitchery blocks. I think I'm chickening out on the appliqué.
Last night I prepped a stitchery block. The border fabric in this block is special. A couple weeks ago I got an email from at Nancy at With Thread in Hand. She asked me for my snail mail address as she had something to send to me. You can imagine my delight when the package arrived and inside was a bag of scraps. Not just any old scraps, but scraps from Leanne herself! Nancy had won the scraps in a drawing Leanne had and she sent them to me! How sweet of Nancy! I'm so excited that I can use some Leanne's scraps in my own Butterfly Garden quilt.
So here's another question. Who would like to give me some appliqué lessons? I'm willing to travel for a weekend to get some lessons. My only constraint is I don't have my passport and traveling to another is probably too far a weekend. But, I'm willing to consider a trip somewhere in the U.S. I can justify a trip to the St. Louis area as DH has a friend who is in need of some male bonding time or just about anywhere else. Talk to me!
