Amy's Sew-n-Tell sisterhood. But rather than not post at all, I couldn't resist laying out some of my blocks for the Values quilt, because they are all trimmed and ready to be pieced, and because the colours are so pretty. These are just a few of the blocks - this quilt is going to be bigger than I realized - not massive, but fairly substantially sized. Katie, the brainchild behind this quiltalong, calls hers "Mine, All Mine", and I can completely relate to that, since I have all kinds of scraps in here from quilts that have been gifted. It's a nice reminder of all that work that I did. This was completely unstudied - whatever blocks came to hand. I think I can do a better job of matching blocks to emphasize the dark/light contrast. And this probably will not be the layout that I go with (but who knows). However, I just wanted to post something to show that I'm still slogging along! Fingers crossed, I'll have something more substantial to show next week.
Update: Seriously, what the heck? Today before noon, three of the blogs on my feed reader make reference to French General's Rouenneries line. I have been steadfastly resisting succumbing to this drop-dead gorgeous line of fabrics, but clearly, this is an omen, a message to me: "Get thee to the online fabric store." Who am I to argue with a message from the beyond?
Update re: update: I ordered one layer cake and two charm packs of Rouenneries from Hancocks of Paducah, and then saw that they had Erin McMorris' Wildwood line on sale for $5 a yard. Here in Canada we pay at least double that. After a brief struggle with my conscience, I convinced myself that I already do plenty to keep my LQS in business. Woe is my credit card.
