This weekend we are getting ready to head to California on Monday for Thanksgiving. The best Thanksgiving gift may be the birth of a new grandbaby. "She" (we really don't know for sure) is due Dec. 2. Gotta get started on baby quilt soon!
In the meantime here is what I have been up to
This is a little 8 inch wool block, the first of several in what will eventually be a wall quilt. It is a replica of a particular style of Mexican tiles that I have seen in Morelia and Guadalajara. I think I photographed these in a museum in Tlaquepaque in Guadalajara. Unfortunately I did not photograph the information that went with the pictures. If anyoone can tell me more about these I would be grateful. I started this in May and just completed it a couple weeks ago - very time consuming and I only worked on it once a week.
This is the other project that I have been working on
I made the cowgirl bride in the top row and the 2 cowgirls sitting on a fence further down. This is a group quilt by the Woolies, a small handwork groupI belong to. It will be the member's only guild raffle quilt for our show in the spring. The theme of the Show will be Cowgirl Roundup. I am going to fill in the 2 missing blocks and sew it together, hopefully between now and Christmas. I am planning to set up the 2 missing blocks and take them on the road with me to work on as we drive to California.
Thanksgiving Blessings to everyone.
