Well, we are at it again.....sweat shop central has opened a branch office at the cabin. My sister Gail met up with us yesterday with her sewing machine, rulers, iron and everything else she needs to help me make a new version of Heartfire. I know this looks like a block from Grammy Square's, but this block is larger and there aren't any "Y" seams involved.
We started with Hint of Print from Marcus fabrics.
We've combined the Spice Palette Cinnamon & Honey collection, also from Marcus Textiles, along with Hint of Print. You know me, variety is the spice of life!
Now you are probably wondering why we are on a mission to make a Heartfire. Well, this quilt is going to be on display in the Marcus booth at Quilt Market in May!!!
Gail here again...Note all the many blocks below. I have to admit I only can claim two of those. Lynn got a head start on me. Also I am switching from doing the Grammy Squares 6" block to the Heartfire 8" block so I really have to think about what I am doing, especially the cutting part. I know I will have to pick up the pace today so my sister doesn't send me packing!
I have just been informed that porridge is on the menu for breakfast. Oh, that's right, this is "sweat shop central". It has been disguised in the name of Irish Oatmeal. That should tide me over until reward time later. As many of you regular followers of Lynn's blog know, my reward last time was a half a cookie. Now I have my eye on a bag of apple cider donuts. Do you think I will get more than just a half?
Follow along with the Sister Act this week to see just how much we get accomplished. Only 27 more blocks to go, plus the connecting triangles.....no sweat.....in the "no sweat" sweat shop!

P.S. I had a very nice surprise this morning when I opened The Daily Blog from The Quilt Show. A slide show of my quilts is featured HERE.
