I'ts been almost a month since my last post. Lots of non-quilty things not worth mentioning have been occupying my time lately. But one thing worth mentioning is my new quilting partner/supervisor. Meet Odin, or as we like to call him...Odie. Here he is peacefully napping under the desk in my studio.
Cute you say? Here's a pic of what he's like most of the time...right in the middle of all the action. Here he is inspecting my sewing machine to make sure its in good working order.
I feel guilty not having any quilty stuff to share. I have a few things in the works but progress has been slow. I am in the beginning stages of making the Elizabeth Crockett quilt as seen here on the cover of Scraps of Life by Helen Ogden Widener. This quilt is historically connected to the area I live as nearby is the final resting place of Ms. Crockett. It now resides at the Alamo but is not on display due to the fragility of it.
My version has 88 fabrics in total. All the strips are cut and the color groups for the 30 blocks decided...so now I just need to start sewing. I have one block completed but no picture to share...sorry. I'll post a picture of the next block, promise. After this quilt is completed it will go up to the quilt shop for showing. Kits will be available for sale and I think some big event is being planned at Ms. Crockett's memorial site regarding this book.
