Design Wall Monday–August 18, 2017

I spent most of last week attending the Quilters by the Sea annual quilt retreat in Temecula, CA.  I can’t begin to tell you how much I look forward to spending time with all these wonderful women.  I spent a lot of time visiting but I actually had a little time for sewing.  I’ll post pictures of some of my projects later this week but in the mean time I thought I’d share my on-going project.

I’m made these blocks in the past but I continue to tweak my process.  Hopefully I’ll be teaching this next year for my Vegas trip next July.

Enjoy,

Grandma’s Kitchen–Block–7/25

I’m at a retreat in Temecula, CA this week but I had time to grab some fabric as I rushed out the door this morning.  So the first thing I did after getting all set up for several days of sewing I made my Block 7.  Here it is.

I’m really enjoying this whole process.

Grandma’s Kitchen–Block 6 - 25

Block 6 was released this morning.  I am so enjoying this.  I think it’s probably as much about the fabric as it is the idea “Grandma’s Kitchen”.  Both of my Grandma’s passed away when I was very young.  I remember them from pictures but not so much from actual memories.

One of my main goals at this point in my live is for my Grandchildren to have fond memories not only of me but also our time in the kitchen together.  I think I’m doing a pretty darn good job of that. 

The block is called Wash Day.  I remember wash day with my Mom.  I think it was Monday’s and Tuesday was ironing day.  For me, wash day works for the bedding (typically Friday) but our clothes get washed whenever. 

Here we go…………………Block 6.
