Works in Progress

 So, I have been doing a bit of sewing.  Yessiree...finished a bunch of blocks yesterday and have more cut for today.  I am using my Verna fabric.  It is a gorgeous line.  I hate to cut it, frankly.  Beautiful. 

I am using this pattern, Elsie and Paige Sisters Forever.  I was inspired to buy it by these quilts here.  (I particularly love that Strawberry Fields version in photo #2.)  You can grab yourself a copy here.  I think it is a nice pattern because the directions are concise.  There are nice diagrams.  It seems to go pretty fast.  And, there are multiple ways of doing quilts in here.  I love choices, don't you?




 Here is my favorite work in progress right here.  Isn't he a handsome guy?  I think that tooth that is missing just completes things, don't you?  He was a junior host at the wedding.  He passed out the programs.  Did a great job too.  As soon as the service started, I was told he looked at his grammie and said, "Grammie, get this flower off me now."  LOL.  You know, flowers are for girls.

Handsome boy that Buddy is! Punk is patiently waiting for her first loose tooth. Nothing yet. LOVE the quilt. It's going to look awesome!

Buddy has grown so much.. He is a cutie. I bet he would prefer to be described as handsome... I too love the Verna line. I only have a few pieces left and I am hoarding it rather than using it. What is up with that? Only a quilter would understand:)
Love the pattern..

Buddy is adorable. That pattern looks like fun and your Verna fabrics are beautiful. I can't seem to cut into my 30's fabrics either but will have to shortly to finish a quilt.
