Progress

This is April's block for the BOM from Canton Village Quilts. No. 8 already, how the time has flown.


I have now finished and attached the third vine and started on the fourth. Adding each vine and sashing seems to give me an urge to get the next one stitched because I think it looks better each time. Even finishing a branch   and being able to pick the fabrics for the next one is enjoyable. I have set aside a basket of fabrics to use and I've made sure I have a large selection to pick     from. I don't want to run out before it's finished and I don't really know how much the leaves will take.                  



Winter has certainly arrived, it has been bitterly cold and very wet. Definately the best time to stay home,keep warm and sew.

You have such a way with putting colour together. I love the fabrics in your block. The vines are knocking my socks off. Each branch and each panel added sure does keep me going too.

Oh I forgot to say that on Susan's vine quilt, some panels have lots of blue, some have lots of cheddar etc so each panel is not a balanced mix of every fabric and it makes the quilt better to look at in my opinion.

Your work is so very beautiful. I admire how far you are on your trailing vines. I'm still at the first vine with a ways to go!

Found your blog through another and I love it.
