11 More to Go!

I am sooooo happy to have more finished than I have left to go. I'm happy to have finished this block, because I will not have time this week to do any more.  Tomorrow I'm going to dinner with Leslie, who is here from Washington, D.C., for a diversity conference, and Wednesday night I'm going to dinner with Anne and Jennifer. Thursday night I will be packing (oh, who am I kidding? I won't start packing until Friday morning when I leave!) for California. I might maybe wash Thursday night. The weekend after that I have to go to NYC to see my nephew Jeffrey starring in The Ugly Duckling. I have managed to be home for a bit, but then I have to go to Dallas and Chicago back to back. So if I manage to finish three more blocks this month, it will be a miracle.

I'm going to California because The African American Quilt Guild of Oakland is having their first quilt show. I will be showing the Liberated Shaded Nine-Patch, because I didn't finish the shoe quilt.

Hi Jeanette, the blocks are looking good. For your liberated African nine patch, did you participate in the block swap some years ago on AA yahoo group. I participated and I might be crazy but some of the blocks look familiar. I put my quilt together almost like yours. Robin

Thanks, Robin! There's a story behind the Liberated Shaded Nine-Patch! Yes, I did sign up for the swap, but I missed the deadline, along with a few of the other ladies. So we swapped amongst ourselves! When I reached out to one of the ladies, she said I had "liberated" her from the deadline. I have since met them all and we have become friends! I quilted Adinkra symbols in the negative space...I LOVE this quilt. It's one of my favorites!

Did you survive it all? What did you bring me back?
