I still haven't been able to finish the Swell Moda U quilt for the shop sample. I ran out of the first rick rack, even though I bought an extra yard. I ordered a replacement from a different shop, hoping I would get it sooner than I got my first order. Yes, I got it right away, but it was smaller, thinner, and too "pink." So I went back to shop #1 and ended up ordering GIANT rick rack instead of jumbo. Oh.My.Word. I don't want the trim to overwhelm the quilt! So I had to place a fourth order last night. If this one is wrong, I think I may have to open a web site just to sell off my excess rick rack. What do you think? And yes, I am a former blonde. ;-)
In other quilty news, I finally got all 12 Web Sampler blocks and also received a finishing kit from a different shop. I am finally getting my "will to sew" back, and made 2 more blocks. I'm still progressing at a snail's pace, but I *am* progressing!
I also finished all the churn dash blocks and cut out all the setting blocks for my Peppermint Twist quilt from the Jo Morton class I took last summer. I am terrified of the applique, but poised to give it a shot. Stay tuned.
