Jane Stickle Quilt: BR-10

Jane Stickle block BR-10Block number/name: BR-10 “Nicholas’ Diamond”

Date completed: October 2, 2010

Number of pieces: 26

Notes on block: I really enjoyed working on this one. At first glance, I thought there were lots of inset seams, but upon closer inspection, not a single inset seam was required. Happy dance!

Only 6 triangles to go!

Yesterday the boys and I drove up to LaConner to check out Quilt Fest 2010. This year, quilts from The Applique Society were featured. There was some seriously gorgeous eye candy and tons of fabulous inspiration. I really wanted to go slower, but with two little ones, that just wasn’t in the cards. No photography was allowed, so I went ahead and purchased a show DVD so that I can really take my time and check out all of the fabulous quilts. As a bonus, I ran into my long-time friend Louise, who actually co-chaired the show. She was understandably busy, but was still able to take a little time out to chat and say hello, which was awesome.

I wish we could have made it to the museum exhibits, but it had already been a long afternoon of travel and walking about. Even so, I could not be happier. The boys were awesome quilt show companions. Both of them had great attitudes and I could not be more proud. I’m a pretty lucky mama!
