Life keeps getting in the way.
Since I posted last I finished The Farmers Wife by Laurie Hird.
While at a retreat I sewed some of the Lost Ship swap blocks together, it will be going to the long arm quilter next week. I am not sure what I will do with the balance.
I have had a goal to document and photo my quilts for a long time. So it was time to refold the bed size quilts that are stored and I enlisted Mr. Quilts to help hang them for photos.
Blooming Nine Patch and Close Up – Traditions with a Twist by Blanche Young
Civil War Diary Quilt – Rosemary Youngs
Civil War Mystery – inspired by Harriet Tubman block designed by Kaye England
Dear Jane (My Love Hate Relationship with Jane) from the book by Brenda Papadakis
Stitches from my Heart – designed by Veda Wilhite
Women of Charm and Grace – Blackbird Designs
Women of Design – Barbara Brackman
Note: The Women of Charm and Grace was done at a local workshop/retreat with a kit provided. In my estimation this is an example of the fabric not matching the design. The workshop was not by Blackbird Designs.
I have also finished assembling my Carolina Lily Quilt and will post about it at a later date.
I am almost at the half way point on Nearly Insane from the book of the same name by Liz Lois. I have tried to maintain the integrity of the antique quilt with my fabric selections. Today I was auditioning fabric for the sashing. I am not sure if I like it or not. The colors in the book are not true, but I have other books where the colors are more accurate. So what do you think about this one – which is the second piece that I have purchased?
Thanks for dropping by.
Until next time.
