When I had my big day of post-mulching rest last Thursday I discovered the British Bake Off show on Netflix. That turned into a weekend of binge watching. I don't know why I like that show so much because I can't eat one thing that they make but, for some reason, it's much more fun to watch than the US versions with all of their fake drama.
But the time wasn't a total waste. I finished off a new set of flower applique blocks. I've done so many of these that they go pretty quickly now.
I've finished 40 and have 16 left to make.
I often recognize some of the fabrics from reprints that I've seem (or collected) over the years. I'm sure I had a repro of that blue one with the circles on it. I showed this one to Mom and we both think that her Mom had a dress made from this fabric. She made lots of dresses from floral prints just like this one.
I also got the repairs done on Lost My Marbles and decided to quilt a few veterans quilts before I load another quilt from my waiting list. I might get started on these today.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
