Busy, busy, busy

I spent yesterday doing errands and quilting on the quilts for Rosie. This is one of the quilts that was in the bunch I am working on. I have not seen this pattern before and I really liked it. It looks so old fashioned to me. I drew the pattern out and am going to try making a block to see how it works out.

Here is a photo of more of the quilt. I completed four quilts and have one loaded ready to go. I have four more in the box and will have all 12 done.

I went to the post office as part of my errands yesterday and they were having some sort of parade going on in the area so I was trapped there for awhile. Thank goodness there is a Jo Ann's by the post office. I went in to waste time and found this fabric for 1.50 a yard. It was on their clearance for 3.00 but then and additional 50% off. I will make really good backing. The original price was 8.99 so I think I got a good deal.
I am still working on the boring four patch. I have decided to call it Prairie Dust. It is coming along and growing on me, someone out there will be happy to have it. Well I best get busy. I have sewing and house chores to do today.
Good day to all. Dot
P.S. Colorado Avalanch made it into the next round for the Stanley Cup. YEAH!!!!! The only bad part is if the Red Wings get in today then I won't know who to root for. The delimas of a sport fan.

Wow Dot, you've been busy! Pretty, yet subtle quilt. Will be great to show the quilting you chose.

Gorgeous! I still think "Prairie Dust" is a beautiful quilt. Very classic!

I really like that block.

Nice quilt! I hung out at Jo Ann's the other day too, but I was in the yarn section. :)

That is an old-fashioned looking block - can't wait to see what you do with it *S*
