So I finally had some time this weekend to get some piecing done on the "I Wooly Love Ewe" quilt. I just fell in love with this pattern when I saw it in a recent issue of Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting. I will admit I had some difficulties in getting this thing pieced, I need to hone my rotary cutting and piecing skills a bit. The applique was fun but I had a few issues in my technique - I'll have to continue discovering the different techniques - I have yet to try a fusible/turned-edge technique but I still have the applique border to complete on this quilt top before it get's quilted so maybe I'll try it on those pieces. Well anyhoo - here's a pic of the progress I've made so far.
I also put out a new quilt that Mom had given to us this past Christmas during our visit to New Mexico - Jody and I both love the colors of this quilt. It looks great on our bed and even though the temperatures go up and down here in New Orleans lately, we love snuggling under this hand-made beauty. Mom's a much better quilter than me, that's for sure!
