Thursday -- Fruits of My Labor

I was able to take the day off because I had a day of comp time. I decided that today I would get a few things done and then pack and get ready for the quilting retreat that I'll be going on this weekend. I got a great start on 2011 projects.
First, here is the January block for Bunny Hill Designs "Henrietta Whiskers". This is going to be the cutest quilt. I love the piecework along with the applique. I used wool for Henrietta's body and cotton for the other appliques. I am going to handstitch the applique.

Here is the January block for the Boot Bash BOM hosted by Molly at Molly's Place. I have decided to use this background for all of the blocks. January's block has snow on it and I haven't added the snow around the boot yet.


The following is the first blocks in Barbara Brackman's Civil War quilt called "Catch Me If You Can". This quilt is to commenorate the sesquil centintennial. A new block pattern will be offered each week.

My car is packed and I'm ready to go retreating (well don't have the clothes packed yet) in the morning.

We must have a lot in common. I have all of these BOM bookmarked and plan to start them shortly. You are inspiring me to get busy.

I wanted to wait on the Civil War quilt until I could order reproduction fabric but I think I'm just going to use scraps I have and do a reproduction quilt later.
