Two more blocks

E-10 Five and Dime

B-9 Tinker Toy

Posted by Picasa
I also finished these blocks in Tofino. I actually sewed the four blocks of E-10 together on the machine at home before going and then just appliqued the melon pieces on top. The four squares are quite simple and large and easy to stitch on the machine. The block needs to be cut down to the 5" unfinished size yet.
I am going to try to figure out how I can link my Picasa web album to this blog and have the pictures on the side bar. I saw that on a blog somewhere - so more technology to figure out!!

A-11 Pebbles Protest

The infamous --- A-11!!

I thought I would post this one first, since it took the longest. The problem with these darn blocks - which I keep saying over and over - is they don't look like as much work as they really are!

So this one will go down in history as the one that I spent the most time on in Tofino. I am glad I am getting back to doing them. I will have to get Eric to update my Virtual Dear Jane quilt as well.

All prepared and ready to go

Jim and I -- and the dog - are heading off to Tofino on Saturday. I have 8 blocks all cut out and ready to be stitched to take along with me. I hope to get them all done!! Which will be amazing for me if I do. I have been quite neglectful of my DJ quilt these past two months. So now it is time to get a few blocks done. Wish me luck. We will be gone one week. I don't think I will be able to access the internet much while we are gone. There is a little internet cafe in Tofino, but we will be staying in a house on the beach and there is no TV, or internet at the house. So lots of time to sit and stitch!!
