Wow, what a week! I attended the River City Quilt Guild Quilt Show in Sacramento, California on Saturday with my quilt group, Spring Chicks, and was just overwhelmed with the incredible quilts they had displayed. So many ideas, so little time!! I was so inspired by a beautiful Baltimore Album quilt I saw that I got off my tush and stopped being scared about the flowers that I had to make for one of my Baltimore Album blocks. I just followed the instructions and so far, made two beautiful flowers!! Yes! There is nothing like conquering your fear!!
I was also able to finish up a leaf block for the quilt, which was quite a pain to do but now it is done and over!! Time to move on to another challenging block. The tight curves on the leaves and those sharp turns were quite a challenge, I just took one leaf at a time (one a day keeps me going).
I also finished up another Hawaiian block, for 4 out of 10 finished! I can't decide what I am more excited about, the Baltimore Album quilt or the Hawaiian quilt. They are both so much fun. Although my friend at the quilt show did point out another beautiful applique pattern which I could not pass up and now I have 6 pending projects. That is it, I will give up sleep!!
