WIP Wednesday

On the table: 3 Dog Ribbon Holders – I’ve cut the background fabric and traced the letters onto the fusible web.  I hope to get almost all of the shapes appliquéd tonight so I can prepare it for quilting by the weekend.  I have a 4th one I want to try to do before I leave but not sure if I’ll have time.

Guild Meeting

Coxey’s Camp Quilt Blocks Tonight is my March guild meeting.  I finished the second BOM block last night.  We make two of the same block, one to keep one to put into the drawing for the guild.  They create a set of 12 blocks and then draw a persons ticket to see who gets to take home 12 blocks that night.  Last month there were enough participants to do 5 drawings!  I didn’t win sadly but maybe my luck will change this month. I posted this on my Twitter but I was wondering, out of these two blocks which one would you keep for yourself?  Civil war fabrics are dark and muddy colors typically so I...
