I got the connector pieces made for my Hot Chocolate BOM! In fact I have the 2nd applique block also, but haven't had time to make it yet. Thought I would share this much since lately any "little" sewing I can do is a major victory for me!
But just wait until next Tuesday! I've been working away on my 30's sunshine on my shoulders and WOW is it going to look great by next Monday night when I have my class! It will be totally pieced except for the exciting bottom row! I got really excited tonight as I started putting things together with the baskets!
And oh baby, did I get a great book in the mail today. It is "Passing on the Comfort": The War, the Quilts and the Women Who Made a Difference by Lynn Kaplanian-Buller and An Keuning-Tichelaar. Lucy told me about this book so I ordered it. I"m totally enthralled. There aren't a lot of quilt pictures, but it is the story of An and her life in the Netherlands during WWII and the things her and her husband have done to give comfort to others. Of course quilts do play a role. I won't tell you any more; 1) because I only got the book today and have just skimmed it and 2) I wouldn't want to spoil it for anyone. But already the story has me hooked. The parts I've read here and there has me wanting to read more. If you like quilt history stories I say this is a must buy!
