Sunbonnet Sue & Overall Sam...

Photo 1 - This is my "Block Holder/Tote". I made it in 2006 when I joined a BOM (block of the month) at a local quilt shop, to carry my blocks to and from. The cover is a panel I came across at some point. From I know not where... Bad memory! 8-/



Photo 2 - This is the Block Holder partially opened up. Unlike most, I put flaps of fabric on the three sides, of each side, to help protect my blocks.




Photo 3 - And this is the Block Holder opened up more to reveal it's contents. On one side I have all my BOM sampler blocks that my Wonky Bits Group (then known as the Quondo Quilters) did when we first gathered as a group. Quite a few ladies were not quilters, so we thought this was a good way to introduce quilting to them. And on the other side I have my blocks from the 2006 BOM I joined at a quilt shop. Both sets are UFOs to be worked on.... soon! 8-)

Here are two of my blocks from my country group. My Sunbonnet Sue post, initiated by Hazel and JulieQ's posts, still needs some embroidery on the flower, and Overall Sam needs an embroidered flower. Click on image for closer look...

We are off to W & J's 25th wedding anniversary celebration this afternoon. At some point during Mass they will renew their vows, and after Mass have a brief reception with the parish, and then we are off to dinner with a few close friends. It will be a good time! Always is with W & J! 8-)

Till later....
