Here we are after our recital. Bella, in pink, was born to be on stage. She did a fantastic job. Lisa and I were two of our quartet. According to the applause and the comments of our family members and some audience members, we did a fine job. We sang a medley of Broadway musical songs through time. Once we decided to just have fun, we all really enjoyed it. I am so glad I did this and can check it off the bucket list. Oh, and here is the hat. It is a bit crooked, but I think you get the idea.
I spent a few hours in my studio today and caught up on my June BOMs for 15 Minutes Play. First, I needed to make some fabric. I have a plastic bag full of scraps just for these blocks. I would like to make a quilt with the blocks at the end.
The first June block is called Beacon Lights. I have to say I have never seen this block before. I enjoyed making the block because I got practice making quarter square triangle squares. I haven't done that before. This is not my favorite block I have ever made, but it will be fine in the quilt.
The second block for June is the Courthouse Steps. I do really like this block. I am using different background material for each block. For the Courthouse Steps, I used a burnt orange. I like the way it looks with the turquoise based made fabric.
Tomorrow, I think I will start making flying geese with the Kansas Troubles Perennials. I also want to start getting everything ready for my sister-in-law's visit. She is coming from the D.C. area to spend a week with us. I am really looking forward to her visit. We are going to do many quilty things.
Until tomorrow, joyful quilting everyone.
