Sounds like a self-help book  LOL - well I am in various stages.  My Frost on the Ferns quilt is back from the long-arm quilter.  I think she did a great job.

Frost on the Ferns 002 Today I picked up the Nebraska Waves quilt, but haven't even sewn the binding on or trimmed it.  I think I will leave the hand sewing for a retreat I am going to  in a couple of weeks.WIP's 001  It is quilted in an all-over design here is a close-up.


I have also put the last cross stitch in the Mary Wigham sampler from the Ackworth School.  I think this was one of the hardest samplers I have made. The counting was very hard.  I should have basted a grid on it.  However, it is a reproduction of what Mary did.  I am blown away how these young girls executed these samplers.  Mary was only 7  when she stitched hers.    I still need to press this before I take it to the framer.


WIP's 003

Today I finished my Burgoyne Surrounded top.  This is not the best pictureBurgoyne Surrounded it is only bordered on the top and bottom.  The pattern is from Kaye England based on an antique quilt she saw.  I think it is unique since this quilt is usually done in as a two color quilt.





Until next time.

Pat, both quilts are so lovely-can you ask your quilter the name of the pattern she did on the Nebraska Waves? I really like it. Do you have any closeups of the custom quilting she did on the Ferns?
You are a very prolific quilter!!!

Great projects Pat! So many lovely quilts, and that sampler is inspiring. When I finish Thistlewood I'm considering a Quaker sampler.
Thank you for the inspiration.
