Sewing along...

Salvaged Hearts: at last year's garage sale Kim Caskey donated several expired inspirations. In fairness to Kim, she probably taught this class at Earthly Goods and these were some of the myriad of samples that she had produced. Anyhooooo, I bought this package and made a few more pieces and by sundown tonight I will have a fabulous new wall hanging ready for quilting and then displaying at my office at the University of Alberta.

Birch Bark: now how much fun is this. A 45 piece random collection of 2.5" strips, with bright orange 1" orange nuggets inserted at random spots and then sewn together in that 1600" quilt fashion, but then the strata is sub-cut and rearranged. Thanks for the design goes to Hunter's Designs Studios for the pattern and to the Edmonton & District Quilters' Guild and their Charity Committee for the pre-cut strips package. This quilt will be used to support the K-Pic Program run at the Grey Nuns Hospital in Edmonton. Hope to be quilted, bound and ready to hand off at the February guild meeting at the Royal Alberta Museum.

Farm Girl at Heart: This is the established name for my Sow-a-long blocks that has been featured by Randy over that the Barrister's Block.  Given the use of the word heart, this will make it easier for my LAQ when it comes to quilting designs. She always does an amazing job and I need to get this finished and into the queue.

Several more to go, then it is time to think about setting and sashing...

Wishing you all the very best
