On to the quilting! I am sorry to say I haven't a whole lot to show this week. I made some blocks for Fran, from my FCQEquilters group. I am very late as she was the July - August person. I didn't even start the blocks until Sept. They are made and I just need to decide on how to package them to get them to her in New Zealand. Fran, if you are reading this, I plan to mail them this week!
I began on Joan's blocks but I'll wait to show them until at least one of the 3 is done. She sent printed foundations for pineapple blocks. Lots of pieces but every piece is coming from scraps.
I did go shopping and lunching with the gal pals. I was able to buy a backing for the Christmas Redwork top. I'm trying to come up with a snappy name. I notice as I reread this I've called it two different names in the goals. Can you think of something snappy? I like Santas and Snowmen as a start.... I'll take any and all suggestions. You can see part of the top here. It needs a better picture which I will post after I finish it, hopefully this week.
That's what I did last week. Check out design walls across the country by going to Patchwork Times.
So how did I do on my goals last week?
