A Day's Work . . . .

My Friday was pretty much spent in my sewing room, who could ask for a better day?

I made my inspiration block for Belle Meade,

and have to say, it IS and inspiration block, I love it! What a great start, I have a good feeling about this quilt.

I also made my large half square triangle units . . . .

right now I'm leaning towards going heavy on the reds.....that may change when my design wall starts filling up with finished blocks....

So for today, and probably the rest of the week,

I'll be taking these

and making 82 of these

and 82 of these.....

Sounds like a fun, drama free there's snow in the forecast, could it get any better than that?

Hope your Monday is low key and drama free!!

Nicole at Sister's Choice Quilts is also working on Belle Meade using French General fabric, be sure to check out her progress today!

Eventide update, several folks ask where they could purchase the pattern Eventide designed by Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Company, it's now out, look for it where you usually buy Miss Rosie patterns, I got mine at the Fat Quarter Shop!
