Free Block of the Week

The Golden Thimble is having a free block of the week.. Now I need a new project like I need more fabric (oh my gosh, did I just say that out aloud???) BUT this one is gorgeous! I can see this in 30's or civil war fabrics, but anyways, they are great! So please check them out!

What has Lissa been working on?


Well I did put together this quilt top.. all the white is for the redwork I am planning on doing on it.. It is a "Red Brolly-Bronwyn Hayes" pattern called "Seed Packet Quilt"... I had sorta kinda traced all the patterns about 4 years ago when I got the quilt pattern! I have since added a float and a couple more borders, and it looks fabbo.

Dad has the big 'op' this week, on Thursday, so I thougth I'd need a project to do when I am sitting at the hospital with him. He thought he was going to be in hospital overnight, turns out he didn't listen, its more like 7-10 days! so I have a top to embroider. Of course I have no pellon, so I'll have to put myself out and go to the quilt shop tomorrow to get me some pellon (I like pellon behind stitcheries)...


Well thats it for me!!

Hi Lissa! Good luck with this one - we must work on the same projects LOL. I have all the stitcheries done for the seed packet quilt but not bordered yet, and its been a good couple of years... I hope you dad is okay. Rachel

Looks yummy already! Can't wait to see the stitcheries.
Hope your Dad's op goes well.

What a shame you HAVE to go the quilt shop!!!! I HAD to go last week for calico, osnaburg, etc - but then accidentally bought some pretty fabric too! Looking forward to seeing what else you get!!!

Yes, it really does look fabbo. I look forward to seeing it with your redwork additions. Hope all goes well with your Dad's op and hospital stay.

Katherine said...

Hope all goes well with your Dad. Smart plan to have some stitchery to keep your hands busy. Can't wait to see how your quilt will look once you complete the stitchery.

I hope your dad's operation goes well. I totally understand having to have something to do while you are at the hospital.
