Block 17 & 18

Finished two more blocks--


 I'm not doing the blocks in order--now I'm back to #11.  Still enjoying the project--today I read back through the blog, learned a few tips on some upcoming blocks--thanks everyone!

Still plugging along

Remember the fable about the tortoise and the hare?  Well, I am a very slow tortoise racing with a whole bunch of faster tortoises!

Block 8
Winter is a good time to work on my applique.  Block 8 is done,  and I have two blocks ready to work on.  This is a long term project--seeing the finished quilts has kept it from becoming a PIGS.  Cleaned my scrap box and pulled some bits for the next blocks.  I'm doing them in the order I feel like--I  have 10 blocks done. 

Hmm--I thought the above picture/post had already been done--but if you've seen it, here it is again.

I did finish another block--

Block 9
I almost did #9 twice--I may have to pull out my finished blocks and label them--I haven't been doing them in order and I'd rather not make any extra!  Lori

Still Plugging Away

After seeing the posts here and watching Sharon make quilting progress, I thought it was time to get a few more quilting stitches in mine. Yep! Long term project and there isn't anything wrong with that.

Been to the Post Office......

My BTCT is on it's way to Paducah, KY....
.....even though it will be shown at the Lancaster Quilt show next month. 
Little did I know that this will be traveling over many states before it gets hung in Lancaster. 
They check it in at the offices of Paducah and then pack it up in a truck and take them all to Lancaster. 
I liken this trip to the post office to sending my first child off to college. It was a little hard to let go.  One good thing though is that I will get to attend the show even if only for a couple of days.  I will post some pictures of it when I get there and get to see it. 
Ok....I am officially excited!
