Getting Ready for Rochester, MN
Here's a few of the baggies of projects I have ready to put in the project box for our trip to Rochester, MN. We always rent a furnished apt (short term lease) at the same place, and the manager knows us well by now. When we arrive, she always puts a second table in the room, along with at least one more lamp! Is that great or what?
The projects are 2 reproduction baby quilts using the Minnesota Hotdish pattern by Terry Atkinson. I think they are called Minnesota Pinwheels (they are shown on the book cover in the upper left hand corner). I also have my Sunbonnet Sue Story so I can make letters ala Tonya for the border. And just in case I finish those projects before we return home, I've packed two more bags with enough fabrics to do at least two more baby quilts using the Quick Quilt book shown in the lower right hand corner. And yes, there are some little "I soy" animal blocks to put in a whacky/wonky quilt, too. As if that isn't enough, today I've added to the pile with enough things cut for a bowtie quilt from Quick Quilts. That will be my half of a raffle quilt for Duschene clinic that will be held in September. I'll have to share the story about our meeting with Duschene clinic, too.
But for now, I am going out in the yard to pull up a chair and watch all the illegal fireworks across town from my front porch:)
