I really like this block. The thought that of a jazz band playing up in heaven is very cute. This block used a lot of metalic cotton and it turned out very nice. This block is one of the longest blocks in this quilt. I was actually hoping to have it finieshed before the release of the next block. Now to press it and put it in a safe place till I have finished all the other blocks.
Well it is finished – the first block in the Stich A Long called Long time ago in Bethleham. I think it came up very well. I like the back ground fabric as it works well with the colors. I am now starting on the next wone which is called Kitchen sink camel. I can’t wait till it is also finished as it has some very nice colors and interesting parts to it.
Have you heard of the term SAL? Well I hadn’t until I picked the christmas edition of Homespun. Well while I was reading it, I found a lovely design that I liked. So I slowly brought the fabric which was Moda Primative Gathering. The pattern suggests white but I like the colors in Moda Primative Gathering as it looks like what the colors would be in the desert. Then I got the cottons and cut out the first fabric and traced the pattern out and started to create the new pattern. I’m a block behind and it is looking good. It is called Long time ago in Bethleham but as I am sewing it I keep thinking of Bone M song.
