I've been working away on my Jubilee quilt.......and posted on the Jubilee Project blog. If you haven't been over there yet, check it out! Everyone posting is either preparing to turn 50, just turned 50, or has fond memories of 50! lol And the quilts are just a fun way to think about your life, your passion for quilting, and all the fun you can muster at this milestone!
Here is my progress on my quilt......I've de-papered and trimmed all 80 string pieced sections. And I've put together 5 blocks. They aren't trimmed down yet, I'll wait until they're all done for that.
I'm just loving everything about this quilt! Well.....except for having to take off the papers from the string piecing! There is so much static here, that they are sticking to EVERYTHING! That makes me crazy! But if that's the worst thing about my day......then life is good! :o)
And we are still in full winter-mode here......two days ago we got about 10" of snow, and last night another 3. Now we're having an icey rain,......fun!
On the right of those posts is a little stair way leading to our field. The low hanging branch is the actually about 5.5' off the ground. In the spring it's covered in beautiful white flowers.....I love it! I just barely have to duck to get under it, but everyone else always complains about it, and wants to chop it off! I just say......"You have to be smarter than the tree!" Ha!
Have a great weekend!
