Block Number 4 for the Quilty Fun Sew Along are three sewing baskets. These were fun to make and I love the batiks I used for each one. What I enjoy most about this sew along is learning new techniques and the variety of blocks we get to create. Now off the work on some secret Christmas gifts…shhhhh!

This is the third block for the Quilty Fun Sew Along. The block is known as Courthouse Steps. It looks a bit wonky in the picture, but trust me, it's not :) I'm using lots of batiks for these and are finding out how different the quality is from each manufacturer. Now back to my studio for some more quilting fun!

Sorry that it has been a long time since my last post. As I've mentioned before, retirement is a lot of work lol!! We've been enjoying our new home with visits from our kids and friends, lots of traveling, off-roading, golfing, quilting, and more.
Speaking of quilting, in between all our other activities, I have been very busy making items for our new home and gifts for others. I'll post some pics if I can get my MacBook Air to cooperate with my photo program.
My latest project is for Lori Holt's ( A Bee In My Bonnet) Quilty Fun Sew Along. I've never participated in one before but love her new book (Quilty Fun) and decided to give it a go. I decided to use my collection of batiks for the blocks and Kona chestnut brown for the background. The first block has three apples and one apple core…so cute (lots of small pieces to cut and sew...a challenge to say the least). The pic is from my iPhone…not the best, but it will have to do for now. Thanks for visiting!
