Last night we had rain, sleet, snow and ice. So today the town in almost shut down. Terrible roadways and stranded motorists. I feel so grateful that I no longer have to get out in it or make a decision about what to do. So I stayed in my jammies all day and sewed.
About 10 days ago I went to a quilting retreat so I thought I would show you some of the little projects that I worked on.
This was a fabric challenge quilt and we had to focus on the acorns hence, the oak leaves. The applique is a freebie from Sentimental Stitches. It is from an antique quilt called Beyond the Cherry Tree. I was pleased with the end result.
I also completed these tops. I ran out of red fabric for the border on one, so I will just bind it in blue. I think that the little one is so cute. I want Mr. Quilts to make me a doll bed so I can use these little cuties.
I also worked on this wall hanging called House on the Square by Jacqueline Paton. I have since placed all of the red wool chimneys on the top. Maybe I will sew them down tomorrow because it looks like it will be a repeat of today. This was a fun quilt to make.
Until next time – stay warm.
