That is, another work-in-progress has been unearthed.  Inspired by some instagram shares from others, I dug out the instructions for the Coming Home quilt (pattern by Sarah Fielke) and figured out what to cut out.  I had finished the second border but because I hadn’t decided on the third, I waffled on the colours to […]

Thankfully, my tomatoes survived the cool nights last weekend. Enough that this Scotia has set some fruit. I have several heritage varieties and one or two standard, all grown from seed. This is Indian River, I’ve never seen a double flower on a tomato like this. Allium is finishing and the columbine are adding some […]

I usually pick out the binding fabrics after I’ve done the quilting. Sometimes I use the leftovers from the backing. More often I find something in my stash that compliments the front. Scrappy bindings are good because I don’t need to use 3/4 of a yard. For the tulip applique quilt, the pink and red […]

Here we are at Tuesday again!  I worked on my tulip applique quilt project some more.  I know what I want to do for the white panels, so next to decide if I do the green panels next or save them for last. I marked the lines with my curved ruler and then used the […]

Actually, I’d rather have housework magic, like the broom in Fantasia. But I did manage to get the fourth corner quilted on my tulip applique quilt. The feathers have flattened it out which is why I plan to do something looser on the rest of the border. Trust me, the quilting will look better than […]

Late last night, I scrunched the laptop out of the way again and finished the webbing of my Frozen Grassy Creek top. While I was stitching, I received an email from Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs that I had won three patterns by participating in the Morewood Mystery quilt parade. My twin size top is […]

I know it doesn’t look that much different,but this is the third corner of ny tulip applique quilt which means just one more. I don’t want to overquilt this, so the rest of the border will get a loopy flower meander. I think that will make the feathers more interesting than doing the whole border. […]

But thankfully no rain in the forecast. As I was walking back from my 6 am walk this morning, the only traffic the waste collection team, I reminded myself how fortunate I am to live in a town where I can go for a morning walk safely. (It’ll be even better when the sun is […]

Hello! I’m going to try to post every day this week to share what I’m working on. Yesterday I started the quilting on my niece’s Tulip Applique quilt. The top had been made by someone else, and I’m not too confident in some of the stitching, so I plan to quilt fairly densely. I started […]

At least the top is done. To make it twin size, I added a top and bottom border (deliberately sized larger than in the body) of the arrow and diamond design. I would like to get this quilted before fall. Linking up to the quilt parade at Meadow Mist Designs.
