Popping in on a hot, muggy Sunday to share my progress. WI is finally getting some summer-type weather...and how! The cool, sunny day that were so very "September like" have vanished, replaced with lots thunderstorms, rain, hail and temps in the 90's. Good time to stay inside and sew!!! Here's a Mile-A-Minute top I finished up last week. I have lots of MAM blocks from working with that hospital basin of "quilt seeds". The purple and white lattice was a donation,and already cut to 2.5"
It wouldn't be my first choice ordinarily, but it was handy, and it sort of works. Betsy thought it was perfect with the really scrappy MAMs. The top is 49" X 57" and I got a backing made today.
This poor sad picture! What am I doing to keep getting these out of focus pictures?? Mostly I'm validating that I"have a box containing 54 8.5" MAM blocks" in baby flannels. I'm going to start pairing them up this evening. I need 63 for the size I want, so I will have to scrounge up a bit more flannel.
And last of all, I saved the best for last...A lovely new parcel of orphan blocks arrived a week or so back. It was during the time I was "missing in action" from blogland. They made my day! I do love those odd bits *VBS* This donation came from Emily of Em's Scrapbag. She and I met during the New Years Eve UFO Countdown last year...at least I think that was when. She said she gave them a bit of a "go", but they just don't tickle her fancy like they do mine. I'm super excited to have more to work with and its looking like I'd better get BUSY!!
