WIP / BOM's Away

Found a few more linkups today....and just wanted to share about my Olympic Rings so you go.


Out of the Darkness Block #6 - Pansy Block. Grateful to Ginny Hildreth and the Discount Vac & Sew in Kennewick that let me be productive while my car was in for a needed service. When you live an hour away from the dealer, it is nice to have a place to hangout for the day and still be productive.

Finished the top for my Olympic Rings, so it is now ready to quilt (along with the rest on the list)! I wrote about this design on Monday along with some research about my Grandfather's own Olympic connection. Once it is finished I'll write more since I've now received information recorded by my cousin's husband who interviewed my grandfather as part of a class project years ago. I have also written a tutorial on how to draw the blocks in EQ7 and a few additional tips to make it. Gets me excited about the upcoming Olympic Games. Maybe I can get it quilted and finished in time for this year's big event.

Ready to Quilt
  • McCall's Mystery - Spring Time
  • McCall's Mystery - Hot Jazz (still need to make the backing)
