Playing Catch Up

As I attempt to get back into quilting, I am reminded why I LOVE this block of the month so much! It is the Tisket Tasket series from Anne at Bunny Hill (see sidebar). Each month’s design is even cuter than the one before. I’d be hard pressed to pick a favorite.

I’ve been trying to hang out a little more in my neglected sewing room and this was the first project I ran to. I was four months behind so this week has been filled with tracing patterns onto fusible web, cutting and ironing.


Lighting is pretty poor there this morning due to overcast skies and just generally crappy illumination!!! Trying to improve the photo with a photo-editing program was no help! But here are the July, August, September and October blocks all fused. Now to add the machine blanketstitch, hand embroidery and some button embellishments and they should be ready to join the party!


Two more months of blocks to go—can’t wait!

Off to fight the rain and get a haircut.
