I’ve been missing in action here on the blog and at home. I had a little escape to the Utah Quilt Guild’s annual Quilt Fest. I meant to get some posts up before I left but obviously that did not happen. I was busy getting things ready for a class I was taking, hand work ready to do while I volunteered, lists for the family to make sure things ran smoothly while I was away, and a few projects to work on in my spare moments.
Speaking of lists I had to laugh when a young mother in my class said her hubby forgot to take her son to preschool. And again when in a lecture by Sally Collins and she mentioned a lady in one of her classes that had left such detailed lists on what her hubby was to do while she was gone that when she called home he said he didn’t have time to talk to her, it wasn’t on the list.
So besides getting in some good laughs, learning new things, and making new friends. I was able to get caught up on my 15 minute play BOM blocks.
They were really fun to make and caught the eye of several quilters in the open sew area while I worked on them.
I’m thinking I might go back a redo a few of my earlier ones. Because even though I like the blocks I feeling that I want them all to have the same background fabric.
Then to figure out how to put them together and have the quilt done by Dec. for the challenge and voting. Weather I win in the challenge or not I’ll be a winner with this happy scrappy quilt.
