New York Beauties

My mission this week is to complete 10 New York Beauty Blocks for the 2007 raffle quilt. I have had 2 months to work on this, but the adreneline junkie that I am refused to work on them until now, when I have only 1 week to finish them! So far I have half of the arcs pieced so I am doing well. My plan is to finish the remaining 5 arcs today, sew all the background pieces on Wednesday, the 1 inch arc sections on thurs, and the small center pie sections on Fri. Then I can take them to Toni on Saturday. They are coming out very well so far - of course the batiks are beautiful. This is going to be a very colorful quilt, and I am sure we will sell lots of raffle tickets for this one!

I was excited to have someone buy Nova Nouvelle yesterday! I hope the quilt brings her a lot of joy. It is a beautiful quilt and I am happy for it to go to a new home. Now I really can make a new one with a clear conscience! Now to figure out colors - maybe some nice blues and purples.

Last but not least, I mailed out my entry for the Pacific International Quilt Festival today! In one month I will know. In the meantime I am going to try to forget about it and just stay busy sewing. I have some curtains to work on this week, and a couple of items to be mended. Not to mention the tote bags I have been creating - more on those later!
