In case you are here on my blog looking for block 47, alas, it is not done yet.
In case you think I have been goofing off let me disabuse you of that notion.
Friday of last week was the first day of our quilt group three day retreat. I spent the first day cutting and stitching borders for my Grandmothers Choice blocks. See, I was trying to make progress.
On day two of the retreat I played hooky and went to the one day conference the Quilt Alliance was having in conjunction with a quilt show. One of the reasons I went was to see up close and personal all the ninety quilts that were entered in the recent TWENTY challenge the QA had - and here I am posing with the quilt that was made by a group I was part of which, much to our amazement, actually won the grand prize. (See my earlier posting on July 5 for more details about this.)
Day three of the retreat was spent working on a "secret" project - of course had you been there you would have seen the secret under construction.
Since the retreat I have had some personal family business to take care of plus I am working on a tight deadline with another quilt project (see paragraph above) that has to be completed and handed in by August 5. And I am doing hand applique on it. Sigh. Why do I do this to myself?
Guess by the time I get to the hand applique for block 47 I will be a little more practiced! Watch this space.
Gee, I hope there is an easy block for block 48 which will be posted tomorrow morning!
