Today is the last day to link up with Bonnie at Quiltville and the all of those who worked on Grand Illusion. I haven't made hardly any progress since I first started the mystery. I have quite a few of one part done and none of most of the others. However, I did get around to making at least one block.
Fellow quilt guild member, Jeanne from Pinehurst Projects, happened to mention Bonnie's Wild & Goosey blocks that were showing up on Facebook and of course I had to search the pattern out. Naturally I had the magazine that the pattern was published in at one time; however, it was the same issue with Lazy Sunday and since I purchased Bonnie's book that had Lazy Sunday in it I no longer needed the issue. Or so I thought! Thank goodness Wild & Goosey is available online so I could at least give it a try.
While I was making the UK inspired blocks I thought about the spool blocks that I had started awhile back and wanted to be sure to make a few blocks from the UK fabric as well. There was barely any fabric left so I was lucky to have a little to make a couple of spool blocks.
Before the holidays I had started working on a turquoise and black and white Pineapple Blossom and did get the top finished after the holidays. Not much progress on it though until this weekend when I was able to measure and sew the backing together on my vintage Singer 301 which I recently picked up at my local Volunteers of America for a mere $40.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my little distracted sewing world. I do read your comments even though I don't always get around to thanking you individually which is my bad.
