Rose’s Visit Post #3

We have talked and laughed more than we’ve sewed but here are Connie’s two finished blocks.

Here is what I got done.

Here are Rose’s blocks so far.

Rose brought us fabric strips that she cut with her die cutter, the Accuquilt Go.  Rose suggested going to their website to watch the tutorial.  I cannot give you any information about it since I have no experience using one successfully but Rose loves hers!

Rose wanted Ernie Joe Mauer to “bless” her quilt by the same name – see the backing fabric?

Bill and Rose are on their way home to Illinois – we had a fun “mini” camp.  Connie and I both came away with more ideas and inspiration than we had prior to Rose’s visit.  That means more unfinished projects – ugh!  But oh so much fun, too.

I believe I will start the Christmas “sew along” on Monday so we will be finished before December 1.  Our books arrived so yours won’t be far behind.  Have a great weekend, everybody!

    Picked up your new book Sew Charming and look forward to the sew along after the holiday. I will try to sew along starting on Monday but UFO’s may get in the way as these are Christmas gifts.
    thank you for blogging. Love all your stories. It makes me feel like we are neighbors.

    I absolutely love your posts! Makes my day to read them! I love my Accuquilt cutter. I have the Go and a Studio cutter as well.

    Sew Charming came in the mail today and so many great ideas. Does anybody remember “Snow Goose?” I got your blue/tan kit for it several years ago. Since there were so many bias edges in the main blocks, I put them together by hand and didn’t press until there were straight edges. The top is done, layered & basted waiting to be hand quilted….. Maybe I should get it quilted?
    Your patterns are real inspiration in the small form and I look at them and see ideas for enlarging. The different color schemes are great for those of us who have more fabric than we will ever use, but who cares?

    Our mail came very late yesterday and I didn’t go out again to see if it was there or not. Stopped at the mailbox after Church this morning and guess what was in there! My copy of “Sew Charming” AND the “Do Not Disturb #511”! Whoot Whoot!!! Can’t wait to dive in to these great patterns! Also, looking forward to the Sew-A-Long tomorrow! Let the games begin! HUGS… and stitches
