Down Time Post Race

I had a little down time after the race to prop up a knee with ice and grab a little hand work I brought along to Portland with me. I'm not sure if this is block B but it is the one I grabbed and finished.  Wool applique on brushed homespun cotton, whip stitched with cotton thread.

If you want to read more about my run check out my other blog. Thank you all for the lovely comments!! I couldn't be more thrilled!!

  7. Great block. Did you use cotton embroidery floss, or just matching regular thread?

  10. Now that's a dedicated quilter......one who runs 26 miles but needs to take a few stitches in a block when she sits down to rest. Always have some sewing in your pocket, no matter what else you're doing. I love it!!!!
