Piece on Earth...

Steel Scraps suggested "Piece on Earth" as a saying for a church sign, and it was so good that I decided to put it on the church building rather than make a sign post.  Thank you for suggesting it!!
Just beyond the golf course and the 18th hole, a lone horse stands in a field contemplating an apple snack stack.

Block #10 of this "All Around the Town" quilt is now done!  I'm getting very close to getting all 12 blocks done so I can assemble the quilt center.  It is getting exciting!

The following pair of pets will embellish a couple of the previous blocks.  I just have them glue basted.  The doggie's bone is wrong side up so you can see where I glued the raw edges under with my trusty Elmer's glue stick and awl.  Now I just need to place them and applique in place.  I want to try and make a garden gnome for one of the yards as well.  Hee-hee-hee...
After a long time where it seemed I was not making emough progress, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel...and it isn't a train!

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  3. I have been so enthralled watching you put this top together that I have added the pattern to my list of things to buy (I'm trying to not shop for the first 6 months of the year, so my list will be long, come July).

    Thanks for sharing your progress. It's just wonderful!

  12. What a wonderful project, Teresa! It been fun to follow the construction of it. Your little town is just magical. I'm also creating a system for myself to save scraps and get to them easier. Your idea is a very good one, thanks!
