Berry Picking Party

Monica and I decided that we were going to do a BOM together. Now only did we decide to do one, we decided to do two. So far I finished the first block of the one I chose. This is called "Berry Picking Party". I prepped the first one Monica picked, "Baltimore Bunnies" and I will be starting to stitch that one soon. We even picked another one after we are done with these. I was also able to finish another Redwork basket on my lunch hours. Three more to go.



That's all I have for this week. It seems like I only had time for hand stitching. I do have "Tisket a Tasket" on my sewing machine. I am about 25% into quilting it and hope to have it done next weekend.

I hope everyone has a ton of time to play this week! Have a happy, healthy week!

I love these, so often recently I have seen patterns that are incorporating embroidery in quilting blocks, more than years past I think. There are several patterns that I have my eye on for in the future!

Your blocks look great! The bobbin winder on my sewing machine quit working today. So I'm off to get one of those Sidewinder bobbin winders tomorrow. Thank goodness my machine still sews at least! :0)

Nice redwork! (that's what I call all of it...not just the "red" stuff...)

In stitches,

I agree with Crispy - you have been awfully busy...no time for Sylvia's blocks when I looked at olefrogeyes! Those stitcheries are so lovely!
I think the quilts that combine piecing and hand stitching are wonderful!

Happy stitcheries! Your new BOM projects sound like a lot of fun. I've always liked that Baltimore Bunnies one... Bunny Hill just has such wonderful designs.
