I just finished this block today. If I had to estimate the hours I worked on it, I would say 40-50. I started it may 27th. And I vowed I wouldn't do any other handwork till it was finished. This was my first try at working on only one thing. It was tough but so glad I accomplished what I set out to do. I have a few other small quilt blocks to get back to before I start block 6.
It was an amazing January weekend here in Missouri. Sunny and almost 70. We spent some time outside.
Rocket even was able to take a swim.
And then I was able to do some sewing. I finished block 4 of Down in the Garden by Leanne Beasley. This is such a lovely quilt and sew fun to do. It is very labor intensive and takes lots of hours but will be an heirloom. At least I hope so.
It was a really cold January weekend. But mellisa came to visit and we finished her first quilt. She bought Minnie fabric for her first sewing. Brave girl. She used a lot of pins and sewed it up perfectly. Then she made a couple burp rags to go with this gift.
I was working on block 7 of "At Home in the Garden". I am totally enjoying this quilt.
Today I have off for MLK Day, I'm felting some wool and hoping to work on the s'mores quilt a bit
