This is my 500th post. I wish I had a sponsor so I could give something away to celebrate.
I have finished my Stitch Tease row. It is now ready for it's trip around the world and I will see it again next year. The first destination will be to Annabella, in Morocco. I am asking for my bee mates to pick a word and then build a strip made of blocks that represent that word. The girls might be surprised to see my word, because I originally told them it was going to be "Garden", but decided on "Bloom, because these blocks were more about flowers. When I think of a garden, I think of fruits and vegetables.
I've already showed you this block...
and this one, too.
I added this block in the center
then made these two appliqued flower blocks
After making the two paper pieced blocks I needed something a little simpler for the rest of the strip..
I always love it when you all use your darling, little children as models in your quilt photos. Mine used to be cute when they were small. This was taken in 1985. Aren't they adorable?
So, I couldn't resist having Evan and Kyle model my Stitch Tease strip when they were here for dinner yesterday. They had no problem hamming it up for the camera.
They are still pretty darn cute!
Thanks for stopping by,
