First order of business.

We have a winner in the Polar Notions Board Giveaway!

The Random Number Generator picked…Winner

That made SHARON the Winner!Sharon Winner

An email has been sent …thanks all for participating!  Don’t forget the Polar Notions Boards are on sale until Midnight (12:00am CST) tonight on the Paper Pieces website that you can find HERE.

Oh and how many boards do I have on my wall.  980!

but honestly another 50 boards just arrived so I can truly finish the wall.  You will note that the lower middle had a shelf of solid reading prints that needed to be wrapped.  So the true total when I am done will be 1030.  Remember this is a stash almost 25 years in the making.  There are some golden oldies up there.   And of course my bins of Civil War Repros and 30s Repros are still alive and over flowing.

Tomorrow is another day.

But today I vow to get the final 32 diamonds done that I need for the borders of my Castle Wall Quilt.   I really do need to get this done as I am off again on Tuesday up to Janesville, Wisconsin  for a two day visit with the Rock Valley Quilt Guild and I would like to share it with them albeit in just top form.

It will remain in top form until my last gig of the year the first week of December then it’s off to quilting so it will be ready to travel off to California when I hit the road again in January.  Whew!

And just wait to you see what I have dreamed up for my 2015 On The Road Project.    There are 30 gigs on the books so lots of hand sewing time.

But for today I will be in my studio.  Working on the outer borders.   It involves foundation piecing (yes there is a difference…paper piecing is wrapping fabric…foundation is sewing on paper).

98 diamonds are needed.  I have 32 to go.

I hope you find time to sew today to!

Enjoy your day,

    I am loving this quilt! Your border diamonds is the perfect finish. This has been an off year for me getting anything done but I am starting to get my mojo back. You are helping. Thank you!

    Are you hand sewing the border diamonds? The quilt is a true sight to behold. Thanks for sharing.

    I love your Castle Wall quilt! I find hand piecing and hand quilting so relaxing. I am vowing to finish my oldest UFO in 2015. My EPP Grandmother’s Flower Garden.
