I have done some sewing in between running the shop for the past 5 days. I did a DJ block on Friday (it's been almost 2 months since my last one...see it on my DJ blog) and then I received one round robin back for ME and added borders.
My Lessons From Mamma Group started our own round robin in June with 5 of us participating. They have never done one before (I'm the instructor). Let me tell you, these ladies are amazing! They worked outside their comfort zones, tried new concepts and colors and created 5 beautiful quilts! I like a doh-doh bird, forgot to take pictures of everyone's finished top, but will do so next month.
We all started with making a 12" block to set a theme up for our tops. Mine was holiday based. Here's what I got back from Pam on Saturday:
Center block by me, Trees by Eva, Red stars by Jan, Mini blocks (3" each) & black border by Jane, Gold/Red border by Pam.
Well, I felt it needed just a little more green to tie it all together and so I could finished and hang it up, so I added 4":
I plan to use the green fabric from the border as the binding as well, need to find a backing today at work. I'm very happy with the end result, again this ladies did just an awsome job. I think we plan to do another round robin in the new year when we start out next BOM club.
And I'm very excited to say I'm a winner!!! Lindsay had her 2nd SHNOODLE a give away and I won!! WOO HOO!! I don't enter many give aways because I don't need more fabric/notions/books, etc...but she is making something special! I love hand made items! So, I'm excitedly waiting for it's completion!
I'm almost done with my charge of the shop, the owner will be back tomorrow so I can past the reins back to her. I'm beat! I think I'm going to sleep all day on Wednesday :)
Here's a random fall shot I took in my van on the way to work yesterday:
I think I can get one DJ block in this morning before I leave for work........
