As I come up with blocks for my "Contentment" quilt, I just have to include one that depicts my quilting passion. I hope to include one with a sewing machine as well, at some point.
I had this great cheater piece from some Christmas fabric line that looks like tiny red/green applique blocks, so I decided to make a frame/outer border and call it a quilt!
Drawing myself, sitting on a stool, was a little tricky, and I chose to draw myself at my fighting weight back in 1983...
Since there were roses in the little cheater quilt, I decided that the block needed a red rose and some buds.
The block will finish 10 inches. If I had it to do over, I don't think I would have gone with the yellow dress, but using the cheater red/green fabric sort of painted me into a corner. I think the purple fabric choice for the numbers of the date were a little rebellious!
I hope you got a chance to sew over the Labor Day holiday. Now that September has arrived, holiday panic is beginning to creep into the back of my mind...
