Journal of a Quilter
Hi Christine, I can't beluieve how quick you ladies are to finish things. I'm still thinking about it and your all done. Well done, I like the colours.
Christine you're so organised!!! I haven't even traced mine off yet LOL!!Hugs,Joy :o)
I can't believe that you have it done already and 8 more ready to go! You are extremely organized and they look fantastic.
it looks great! I like your fabric choice !!!
Lovely block and a great idea for preparing the blocks ahead of time.
Great idea! I like the colours of your fabrics!!
Question for you about pressing the finished blocks. I just pressed my first two Polka-Dot Girls blocks and may have ruined them. Before stitching I ironed on a Pellon interfacing, as instructed. Now, after ironing, the fabric between the stitching looks all bubble. Like the fabric and interfacing have separated. How do you press stitchery blocks?
Hi Christine. I love your first block. Great job. Your color choices are lovely.
Well, aren't you just the smart one;) I haven't even started my first block yet, but hope to get it finished by the end of the week. I like your idea of preparing all of your blocks ahead of time...I think you are right...it will save you time later;)
Ahhh... love your little block..and already done the blocks...wow... I have drawn mine out tonight so I will stitch later on... :o)
Wow -- you've really got this organized for yourself!! I plan on doing those blocks too -- guess I'd better get moving on it!
You are so organised, Christine! Good for you for planning ahead! The blocks look great, well done you! I really like the stitchery, might have to do this one... just not now...
Cnristine, that is lovely. Gr8 idea making all the blocks in advance. SueWestern Australia
Way to go Christine I'm still thinking about it I have two big stitcheries to do by Threadbare Creations, yours looks soo good I might just print now stitch later.
Slow Down!!!!!Only kidding, they look fantastic!
You are super organised Christine! The first block looks great! Can't wait to see your progress. Jo xo
Love your first block! What a great idea to make the blocks ahead of time! I think I'll have to make this BOM...yippee...another excuse to go buy more fabric!
Gosh how sensible Christine. That is being extremely organised.Deb
Your Block looks Lovely...Great fabric choice too...I Love a Gal who is Organized...Great Idea of doing all your block at once...cheers
Now that is a great idea, prepping the other blocks now so they are ready to go each month... your block looks great - thank you for sharing :) Hugs Jx
It's always a great pleasure for me seeing your fantastic works of stitchery!!!!Congrats!!!Grazia
They are beautiful! I like the colours you chose, they match so well together!
Very clever to do the rest of the blocks up in advance. I only got as far as cutting the rest of the center block and then stopped.
Your Gail Pan block looks great, I will start tomorrow. Your choice of fabric is looking great.
You're a lot further ahead with this project than me!! What a great idea to make up all the blocks now!
Beautiful! Boy, you're quick! How smart to do the blocks first, then it's only for you to add the stitchery!
I just love this sweet little block of the month. I really need to find some time and make it. I think your idea to make the blocks in advance was reallly smart.
Hi Christine,I found your blog via Gail Pan. I must say, I love your blog and your projects! I like the same things. Hope to visit your blog oftener.Have a great week :)Monika
Great idea getting them all ready for the stitching! I am definately going to do that! Wonderful job on your block!
WOW - you are rolling ahead.....I too hope to do that one....just need to finish another first...oh LOL...too many to do and so little time to do it in....Hey thanks for inspiring me too - check out this you have been nominatedhttp://mythoughtsbysonia.blogspot.com/2009/01/commentsawardsupdates-and-more.html
You really did a great job and kudos for doing it right as it was posted. Hope you can continue thru the year!!Peggy in NJ
Love the block. The fabrics you have chosen look great. And you are so well prepared for the next blocks
You are so motivated, with so many projects on the go! I love both of your new stitchery projects
I'm hoping to do this BOM. I love the way your first block turned out - beautiful choice of fabrics.Margaret
Hello, I'm new to stitching and to your blog. I just completed my first block last week.. was a BOM from '08 that I saved as I followed along..anyway your "love" block is another I am hoping to start making. I love the fabrics you choose... mind sharing what color numbers of DMC floss you used?You are smart to make the blocks up ahead of time and I see that you found some frey stoppa so taht should help.. other wise I'd suggest cutting those boarder strips a little widder.. then trim to the perfect size before piecing together if you had freyed edges.Oh, and your photos are EXCELENT! I am drooling all over my keyboard looking at those and the applique project above. :) I'll be back - bookmarking your blog for sure! Love from Texas! ~bonnie
Thanks for taking the time to comment. I appreciate your thoughts. Christine
