Three Things for December....

1. Purchase orange fleece for the backing of this quilt

and make ready for hand quilting, pick stitch style, ala Molly Flanders!

2. Assemble one of five small quilts to be assembled from these blocks from my great grandmother Artherholt!

3. Assemble quilt top for In Color Order's Block of the Month!

This would constitute a huge month for me.....!

Thanks to Elle for the heads-up on this with Traceyjay!

I'm glad I could help! And that pick stitch tutorial was interesting - I didn't know there was a different name for that - that is how I hand-quilt, but with thread. And now i'm inspired...I miss having a hand-quilting project to work on. I need to add one to the mix, so I've got something to stitch on while watching tv with my hubby! I love that you have quilt blocks from your great grandmother! What a treasure! I have dresses my grandmother made for me when I was a baby, many hand-smocked, but alas...she wasn't a quilter. :(. Good luck with lots of big, fun projects for the month!
