I've been keeping busy with things like the house flag quilt of which I will share more later. I've taken a small job of programs for my small quilt Chapter and the flag will be one of the things I hope to teach them next year. Programs just involves having a quilt project to teach every month. I don't have to do them all but a few. The house flag is something I've wanted to do for years. Actually there used to be a pattern like 30 years ago. It's not like mine but it's the one that gave me the idea.
I've also set up a second machine and station for learning how to machine quilt. I've been quilting since the 70's but don't machine quilt. I've cut 28 sandwiches and am told that if I practice 10-15 minutes a day that I should be fairly good before 30 days. I've been told this by two old friends that both know my skills and are both very good at machine quilting. We'll see! As most things that I want too much, it scares me. I've yet to sit down and quilt. I have promised myself that I will do it starting tomorrow. I set up the extra station today so no more excuses.
I've also started making the templates for the Christmas Applique Quilt that I've promised to share with every one. It is is the same vein as my Spooky Halloween quilt with a white cat instead of a black cat. Here is a tease:
Christmas is coming!!
