Two more Prairie Schooler blocks!



I finished off 'A' last night and 'B' was actually done over several months last fall. I don't think I ever got around to putting a picture of it on here. It seemed to take forever! That means only 2 left.....Y and Z. And then I can start putting my quilt together!

I bought my fabric for the quilt last fall, its from a Moda fabric line called 'Bound to the Prairie' - very appropriate name I thought and the fabrics tie in perfectly with the PS blocks. I wanted to start putting a few of the blocks together but they need a good cleaning after my hours of pawing at them. I searched all my cupboards, and I couldn't find my treasured bottle of Orvus anywhere. I have a sneaky suspicion hubby didn't realize the value of this strange looking stuff and tossed it. Luckily Ann now carries it in her shop and was able to bring me a bottle at our last stitching get-together. So now my blocks will get a nice refreshing bath to clean them up.

Speaking of....Ann is soon on her merry way to the Nashville needlework show! She has so kindly offered to pick up any items we might (ahem) need and of course top of my list is the Ackworth Friendship Book by Ellen Chester of With My Needle. There may be a few other things that I need, its going to be difficult to keep this list short enough.

We have some very cold weather coming out way....time to get those socks knitted up!

Edited to add: Here is my Prairie Schooler album!

I had never paid any attention to "A" before... it's really nice! Do you have an album with all of your letters? I'd love to see them.

Looks like the quilt will be beautiful when you get these blocks all done and together! Bundle up and get your needlework ready, we are having the cold snap here as well and I'm going to have the fire going and I don't plan to set foot outside the house if I can help it!

You know I love this PS alphabet series! I'm amazed that anyone could have the stamina to actually finish all of them. That's my dream: to finish all of them. I can't wait to see your quilt!
