We are once again at Rockport Texas for a few days. This time my machine made the trip as well. Also brought along a container of 2.5 inch squares and strips. Decided to work on Arkansas Crossroads. A great scrap quilt. My scraps range the gamut from batiks, kids, brights, you guessed it everything. The 16 patches are that-everything. This is th first five done.
Now all 19 are done. Ended up doing an extra! and the crossroad blocks are also done; 68 of those.Still need to do the border blocks. Glad I decided to toss in some fabric for background just in case I got the 16 patches done. That would have meant another trip to the quilt shop in town.Yes, another, we stopped there on Friday!
Jeanne, the owner of Golden Needles and Quilt Shop wanted a picture of the girls! It is a great little shop. Lots of coastal fabrics which we don't get at home.
We spend most of the days checking out the birding sites and back roads going through the flats. Galen gets lots of pictures. At night he is downloading his pictures from the day, getting them sorted, I'D and posted on the various groups. Good time for me to sew.
My stack of blocks. The ones with the clips are the 68. 4.5 background block with 2.5 sqs sewn on 2 opposite corners, They are not trimmed and pressed yet. Maybe tonight.
2 old quilts always travel with us for the bed so the girls can be on top
Tiki has a favorite toy-her buffalo. It also made the trip.
Over to a new site for design wall mondays
