My husband is away for the afternoon so I am spending a blissful Saturday afternoon doing a little sewing...
Here are the 6 blocks I have made so far:
Only 14 to go!
I decided to not use the yellow and black swoon block that I showed you a few posts ago...the yellow just did not pop enough against the white background.
I made another swoon block with some black and white polka dots and pink today. I bought the black and white dotty fabric at the Mad About Patchwork fabric party I hosted a couple of weeks ago. I have 4/9 Swoon blocks completed and fabric picked out for the rest of them.
Last weekend, my family spent the weekend in Kingston, Ontario where we went to the Sunset Ceremony at Fort Henry.
The marching band is made up of university and college students.
I had not been to Fort Henry since I was a child when my family went to the Sunset Ceremony and toured the fort!
We also toured Bellvue House, former home of Sir John A. Macdonald, first Prime Minister of Canada.
In the bedrooms, I took pictures of the quilts on the beds.
A double Irish chain with Baptist fan quilting.
On Monday, we went on a boat cruise of the 1000 Islands from Ganonoque. There were a lot of people on the boat so it was hard to get pictures. The highlight of the trip was a view of Boldt Castle.
Some day, I would like to go back and go on a tour of the Castle.
I am working on a birthday gift for a friend now. I will show a picture of it after it has been gifted.
Have a good weekend!
