And here are the blocks laid out but not yet sewn together.
I'm thrilled that there are more points that look right than there are that don't!
And another "mystery" was solved today as well. Remember the missing tree block I told you about? It showed up in my mailbox today! I am showing this picture to prove that I really did have my Bee block mailed in January like a good girl. Apparently, I just don't know how to copy down addresses correctly.
Earlier this week, I found a blog that I'm probably the last one in the world to discover, but it has tons of wonderful tutorials for free motion quilting! The blogger is Lori Kennedy at The Inbox Jaunt. She is a Free Motion Quilter enthusiast and I am looking forward to trying some of the cute things she shows.
Or this . . .
Her tutorials are very clear and easy to follow and there are lots of really fun designs. You should check them out, especially if you like doodling with thread.
This has been a very productive week. My BQF (best quilty friend) Robin, has the same machine that I do (Bernina 440QE) and she recently took hers in to have it serviced and discovered that the stitch regulator has to have regular computer updates to work correctly. So all this time I have been using this BSR and it hasn't been regulating a thing. I wondered why my quilting stitches weren't more consistent in size. Any regulating that was done was all me!
I really do like to celebrate little things sometimes. So here is my little victory for the week. You know how sometimes you need something but it just isn't that important to take the time to go to the store for? This week, for me, it was tweezers. I find that they get borrowed and not returned and then nobody knows where they are. I keep forgetting to get some and I think my brows are getting rather bushy! Look what I found today at our university bookstore where I work. Not only are they cute, they were 75% off! Yay! I hope they work.
As I was putting away my Quilting Camp kit and enjoying the colorful fabrics, I remembered that I forgot to show you the backing that goes with it.
Isn't this cute???
And this selvedge!!
As you can see, little things make me happy.
I hope I'm not boring you with minutiae.
Have a blessed day!
