It’s almost Friday --- well, it sort of is. I have the day off tomorrow for the Independence Day holiday falling on Saturday. It’s nice to have a three day weekend. And we’re going to have a few days of summer at the same time. With weather patterns in the U.P., you never know.
Summer time rolls around and one thing I always look forward to is Primitive Gatherings Summer Block of the week. Keeping life in perspective made me realize I did not complete last year’s program. Life got busy and I started sewing for Christmas. Eric got married. I loved the project – that was not the problem. I repeat – Keeping life in perspective made me pull out last year’s project to work on instead of ordering the new 2015 project.
I finished this block on Wednesday. I love the dragonfly.
It connects with other blocks , so I will pin them away and piece the blocks together. I did not purchase the thread kit. I used threads I already had or three strands of DMC floss. With getting a block in the mail each week, a Freebie project is also included. I love getting mail.
I completely fell in love with it all over again. I’m hoping by the end of the summer to have this baby ready for quilting.
There’s a ton of 4-patch quilt-along’s going on out there. I’m also considering this one mine. Wool applique works great on the porch.
It’s going to be a great quilt.
