I didn't get much hand work done during the month of June.
Mostly because I burned my right hand (grabbing the wrong side of a curling iron) early on.
Happy to say - my hand healed beautifully due to LOTS of lidocaine, aloe & ice.
I did manage to complete 2 of my small 5" Dutch Treat blocks.
I also finished my Ben Biggs block for Month 5 and have Month 6 in progress.
Here's a peek at something new I'm adding to my Applique Repertoire....
This is just a preliminary sampling of fabrics that I've set aside for a special project. Dawn over at Collector with a Needle has a fabulous treasure called the Noah & Matilda Album quilt dated 1851.
She is graciously offering up the patterns for sale. I LOVE this quilt and look forward to recreating it using some of my favorite traditional red & green fabrics.
Wishing my U.S. blogging friends safe & happy Independence Day celebrations!
