I also received a very cute postcard in the mail yesterday from Susan for the fall postcard exchange I had arranged here on my blog .
Isn't it just the cutest " Be True to who you are" what a great statement Mr. Owl . Thanks so much Susan I love it !!
I hope those taking part in the postcard exchange have gotten their cards made and even posted , it is such fun to receive these works of art in the mail . I sent off two this week for my partners so be on the look out , they should land before too long .
Our guild the Thistle Quilt Guild had their first meeting for this year on Wednesday and Anne our program director introduced us to a BOM which we have the option of taking part in . I of course signed up , can't resist a BOM such a great way to learn new blocks , new techniques and make a great quilt all at the same time . Our blocks will all come from the public domain and this months blocks are from the Quilters Cache a great site for free patterns . We have the choice of making three blocks this month,, we can do all three or we can do just one or two , the choice is ours so I think I will try all three and see how that goes . Yesterday I made my first block ,here it is " Crosses and Losses "
It might be difficult to tell from this photo but the fabric is Christmas , not a traditional colour but I just fell in love with these FQ's and I am hoping I have enough to make a decent size quilt . We will see . I have the second block Denise's Star cut and ready to assemble .
I now have seven Charm Star shirt blocks completed which gives me 14 tiny pinwheels :-) I didn't take a photo so will do that later on . I am off now to get that second block made for our BOM , wish me luck.
Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy this beautiful fall day , it is a cool one here on the east coast but so lovely .
