This week has been very productive. I finished last weeks project and also started a couple of my own quilts and made good progress on them as well. I love this time of year, we processed some apples and they are in the freezer ready to make apple crisps and apple pie, and some cherries as well. Our tomato plants are growing like weeds and we even harvested a couple cherry tomatoes, and the vegetable stand we love is open and has all sorts of yummy veggies to purchase.I purchased these two patterns and fabric kits from Connecting Threads. I wanted some fast and easy projects finished up for upcoming gifts.I got the first one completed and I have been working on quilting it.I am brand new at quilting my own quilts so I am very much in a steep learning curve. I purchased this Quilters Select ruler some time ago, stashed it in the drawer and pretty much forgot about it. But drawing lines with various markers has been a chore. This rulers is extra thick, and it has a surface on the back of it that sticks to the fabric. I can line up ruler to the side of my machine foot and guide the stitching with no issues at all. With the large holes in the center I can grip the ruler and guild the machines foot right along the edge. This one is 2 by 8 inches, so I just ordered the larger size of 3 by 12.This is the second kit I purchased. I like this one even more than the first. In fact the pattern is so nice I have cut another out with some of my own fabric stash.And yes, last week's Project is complete, and it is off to the ladies that asked me to make it for them and they will quilt it. I will get it back to bind and do the handwork. It is destined to go to some charity event as a fund raiser and be auctioned off.
