I did manage to get three blocks done for a Quilt Along. I decided to join a few 'quilt alongs' and a mug rug swap. I really want hone my skills before I open up my own etsy shop. It's coming, I promise.
The first Quilt Along that I joined, was the Bloggers Block of the Month Quilt Along hosted by Peach Patch Quilts. This is the quilt that I made the blocks for.
|September 2012 Block ~ Fun in the Middle Block|
|October 2012 Block ~ Churn Dash|
|November 2012 Block ~ Big and Little|
The other quilt along that I joined is called "My Favorite Block Quilt Along" by Persimon Dreams. I haven't started that one yet, but it is on my list of to do's. The next blocks are coming out on Tuesday. I am really excited about that. I haven't decided on a color theme yet, but I am thinking something along the lines of 1930's or 1940's reproduction fabrics with a white background.
I also joined the "Mug Rug Swap" hosted by the Quilting Gallery using designs from The Patchsmith. I am awaiting confirmation on this one. I can't wait to receive the patterns. I am excited to do some applique. I have never done any applique and I need to get over my fear. Why not learn and share what I have learned?
On another note, I have printed out a blog planner and hope to get a little more organized in terms of blogging. I hope to get more organized in general and will blog about it if I ever get my act together enough to let you know what is working for us. I am really hopeful that I will have a bit better time management, more productive homeschool and essentially a lot more time for me. It all begins with prayer and that is where I would like to end today. I hope that you have had a wonderful weekend.
