National Quilt Day

Yesterday was National Quilt Day. I hope you had a great time making quilts.

I had to work. The office wasn't very busy though so I had some time to applique another Moondance block. Yes I'm getting paid while I quilt. How's that for being frugal, Michele? I'll be doing the leaves when I find / buy the green thread(s), and since some of the leaves will cross seams, some of them will have to wait until the seam is sewn.

Here's the finished ones so far. Those of you who are familiar with the Moondance quilt will notice that I am making the flowers bigger. The pattern calls for four flowers per block.

Today I have my first day off all year. I am hoping to find some time to quilt, but the housework is calling loudly.

the colours you're using for moondance are wonderful, not bright, but definately saturated and cheerful.

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha. You got me, good Missy! That's beyond good, that gooder than it oughter be! Love, love, love your blocks. You make me want to qpplique, but I'm packing ...again!...heading north to Alaska for another month of care taking fun. Now, that's off of my parents at my age ;)

Hope you didn't listen to the housework and did some quilting!
The housework has to yell pretty loud at my house to get me to respond. LOL

Yeah, let the dust settle and enjoy some sewing time. The flowers are such pretty colors and whimsical, I really like what you have here.
