Back from an outstanding long weekend in Mineral Point, WI, at the Jones Mansion. Who wouldn't be pleased to call this gorgeous brickpile home, if even for just a few days?
Nothing like a few days of concentrated sewing in an inspirational setting to re-focus and re-light the fires. And time with quilty friends--just the best.
More pictures here.
I had a great time in Mineral Point and got a good deal done, even though there is relatively little to show at this point. Freddy Moran would say that I'm building up the Parts Department for this Double Ninepatch quilt. So, here's where I'm at:
My blocks are made, and I pounded out nearly 200 Peaky and Spike units that will become block sashing. Still needed--a raft more little ninepatches to serve as cornerstones with the sashing. This quilt is taking a good deal of pre-construction, but that's hardly a news flash.
