Make Your Own Thimble… again and Split Rail Quilt Wins

I’m in the process of making the quilt for our bed… but in the evening I’m doing a little hand quilting on a small one that I started ages back.  Hand quilting without a thimble is a bit disconcerting to say the least.   And I cannot for the life of me find my hand-made leather thimble.. 😦  So I am posting a link back to the one I made using a chamois back in 2009.  Today I will be making another one.

I finally decided I would do the Split Rail Fence quilt since this will be the first king size quilt I’ve made.  I love the way it looks!   I laid it out on the bed yesterday and was really surprised that I will love it. The blocks are 13″ block and will give ample room for specialty quilting.

It’s much cooler this week here in North Texas.  A couple of days ago it was in the upper 40s when I got up at 5am.  Little cool standing out there in my house coat waiting for Sam to make up his mind where to do his business..lol

Have a wonderful day and make something today… even if it’s just making a little noise with a song.. 🙂
