Grandma's kitchen - another day of catching up

Hi folks!

Now that I've finished the "Straight as an arrow" baby quilt, it's time to get back to the blocks from Pat Sloan's Grandma's Kitchen Quilt Along.

On Sunday, I had a long overdue quilting day with my friend who had begged me to do this quilt along with her.

We both had a rough day. I was dealing with the repeated launderings of the baby quilt and she was having a difficult time with her piecing. Things were not going well for either of us but we both persevered.

I was able to finish up blocks 8, 9, and 10.

Block 8 - Grandma's Apron Applique is not something I do very often but I'm quite pleased with how this one came together. Pro-tip: drop the speed of your machine to it's very slowest AND use a very light foot on the gas pedal and you will do just fine.

Block 9 - The Kitchen Window

Block 10 - Recipe Box The pattern for this one suggested using a different setting than the one in the pattern. So I did.

I still have more catching up to do. Blocks 11, 12, and 13 have already been published. Block 14 is due out Wednesday. I probably won't get to them again until next weekend. Busy week ahead!

As always, thanks for stopping by!
