Inspiration At The Post Office
Inspiration is everywhere! I like to buy different stamps at the post office to try and make paying bills a LITTLE bit more palatable. I found these forever stamps today and immediately thought it was a quilt block....not so but I htink it could be!
Here is one of the background blocks for the Longwood Garden Quilt. It is paper pieced...which I can do and thought would be easy. NOT SO! Each block took an hour to make, thank goodness I only took 5 and not 10 like Terry and Jane. It is not squared up.....
Today I am working on a project for my sister in law, Denise. She and her husband are having a 50th birthday party for themselves on Saturday and she needed these cushions jujed up! So I volunteered to do it and have 2 down and 8 more to go.
This is the fabric she picked which is awesome....I can use the lines and not have to do much measuring. Back to work.
