So lately I have not been doing much on my blog because so much of what I am doing is secret!! Several months ago I took up a challenge to test quilt blocks for Quiltmaker Magazine. One of my friends who has had a block accepted for their publication, 100 Blocks Volume 5, let us know on Facebook that they were looking for more block testers for the next publication-Volume 6. I applied and they accepted and I have been very busy since that time. I also accepted the challenge to make a quilt from one of the blocks that I tested. They gave us fabric to work with and we could choose what ever block we wanted.
I decided to make it really hard on myself and chose a line of fabric that was totally out of my comfort zone!!! Well, only one block that I have tested so far will work with this fabric and the quilt is due at the end of August. Completely done, quilted, and to arrive in Colorado at the end of this month!!! I am working on the borders now and will hopefully get it layered and pinned tonight. Then I will have one full week of machine quilting to do while working full time.
Sometimes I do wonder why I torture myself so intensely!!
I still have one more block to test for them and I am hoping that will be it. Today I must get that done also!!!
Once the publication becomes public, I will be able to share all the work I have been doing!!!
So until later, Happy Quilting, wish me luck!!, Take Care, and keep those needles sharp!! Martha
