Hi everyone, this weekend I participated in a Virtual Retreat on one of the Yahoo Groups that I am on.  I worked on a top that has been sitting around for way too long.  It is Nebraska Waves by Jo Morton.  I have reduced the size by one row.  I will use a black fabric for the setting blocks and border.

Nebraska Waves

I am going to leave that on the design wall for a couple of days in case I want to tweak the placement of the blocks.  So in the meantime I am working on this hand piecing project. 

Hexagon Stars I ordinarily machine piece but chose not to for this project with the small pieces.  it will be 30 x 30 when it is complete.

I saw this on Ann Hermes' blog and just had to copy the idea.  Thanks Ann!

Yardstick Hanger

The yardstick is an antique - I have no idea where it come from.  Most like from my Dad's business when Mr. Quilts closed it up after his passing.  But I found another one at Home Depot in the paint department.  It is very sturdy and after it was stained and waxed it looks old.

It is just another way I can display my quilts in my home.

Until next time...
