Block Nine with Jovita Goldschmidt
Here we are at Block Nine. Awesome! This block has been a little interesting to work on. Interesting because Jovita lives on the other side of the pond. The time zone difference making communicating by email a slower process than usual. I think it is amazing that in our Layer Cake Quilt Along group we have people from all over the world!
Jovita’s blog is: http://jovitaspatchwork.blogspot.com/.
My love for fabrics and creating things began at a very young age as I watched my mom sew work shirts, wedding clothes, play clothes, swimwear and even underwear for myself and seven siblings while my dad worked, gardened and bartered to feed his brood at home.
As a result of their amazing inspiration, I am surrounded by craftsmen: everything from woodworking to ceramic art, tole painting and cross-stitching to knitting and more – oh, did I mention quilting? My mom and four sisters are all quilters.
I also love to garden and to cook and bake, but hate the clean-up and can really get lost in a good book – especially if it’s a historical novel but only if it’s based on true fact.
When I’m not sewing, I’m dreaming up a new design for this or that, updating the shop’s website, sitting with a cup of coffee on the porch staring at the garden with a blank notebook next to me ready to jot down, scribble or draw the next crazy idea whether it be a quilt, something to paint on the wall, a sketch of a newflower bed, something “to do” or a note to a friend . . .
. . . you get the picture right? . . . my brain never stops!
Jovita has 4 variations for her block. These blocks aren’t actually sewn together yet. She has sewn the 9 pieces together and rotated them to come up with 4 variations.
Well, any pictures posted in the flickr group by tonight will be entered into the first drawing. About 10 ish tonight (Mountain Time) I will post my Block EIGHT. All blocks BEFORE mine are those entered into the first drawing. It doesn’t matter which block – just the one’s posted before mine. If you post your block AFTER mine, then it will be entered into the next drawing. I will post the winners tomorrow.
What’s up for grabs this time?
I actually don’t know. . . . We will have two mystery prizes up for grabs this time.
