Good morning! I finished the applique block for the bright version of the Austin Bluebird quilt (applause here)! I still need to trim it down and sew the two pieced parts to it but you get the idea. This is the quilt that I decided to make in a bright version with my fabrics and also make in the traditional fabrics that came with the BOM. I wanted to do the bright version first so that, if I'm going to mess it up, it won't be on the block that came with the BOM.
Oh, I found something on Pinterest yesterday that I think you'll like! It's a very handy conversion chart for inches to mm and cm. So helpful for patterns written by my favorite Australian and UK designers.
I'd love to be able to give credit to the person who put this together but none was given on Pinterest. If you click on it you can print out a size you can read.
I also found a photo of a gorgeous antique quilt on Pinterest. No info on it either! I'd like to make a duplicate of this quilt. I love the pattern and the colors!
Well, that's all I've got today. I have to go work on my pesky "real job" and wait for "helpful" emails from "the 24 year old" a/k/a my boss. I'm writing for the website of a big, well-known store today and, sadly, they requested that the copy be written on an 8th grade level. It's adult clothing but that's what our country has come to. Can you imagine? 8th grade! I can't fathom what the world will be like for my as-yet-unborn great grandchildren. Let me know what you're doing today and cheer me up! XO from Bev
