I promised a pic of me showing off Gothic Windows at quilt guild this month when it was published, and it was up on the guild's site this morning. It's a rather unflattering picture, between the lighting and me being in the middle of saying something, but it does show the size of the quilt well:
I had a box arrive from joann.com yesterday. I've never ordered from them online before but they had great prices on the quilt stencil spray (I bought two cans - the store was out) and Mary Ellen's Best Press, which I love to use. They had flat-head pins on sale and none in the store, and I also bought some Machinger's gloves for machine quilting. They definitely have a more extensive selection online than in the store and if you can add a deal for a discount or free shipping it's a good route to go. I just wish the order-to-receipt process had been faster since it took well over a week and Amazon has spoiled me!
I cut the last of my border pieces for Spanish Treasure last night and might have some time to do some piecing tonight. I really, really want to cut Sunday short and be home in time to sew this weekend, but whether I will return to machine quilting Jacob's Ladder or piecing top and borders of Spanish Treasure will be the predicament!
Finally, I'm very excited that I will be testing blocks for a future Quiltmaker 100 Blocks volume! Requests for volunteers went out on Facebook yesterday, I shot a few emails agreeing to terms, and now will just wait to see what comes to me. I know I complain about being overloaded, but two weeks to test and evaluate some block patterns is not unreasonable, and will be more fun than some of the other things I have going on. I'm very excited since these magazines are a must have and I'm in on the ground floor!
