Tulip Applique Quilt Finish

Once I start quilting a quilt, I like to leave my machine set up for it, so other projects go on hold.  Unfortunately these days the Singer 301, used mainly for piecing (also excels at bagmaking with the direct-drive motor) is under my work laptop, so it has been sleeping,  but some diligent effort brought […]

Another comes to light

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 […]

Nice Surprise

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 […]

Third corner

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. […]

Cloudy day

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 […]

Change of Pace

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 […]

Morewood mystery

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.

Next project

I am great at starting projects.  This quarter, I am striving to be great at finishing projects.  On my table today:  Kinship baby quilt for burying threads, January bag of the month needs the strap, Beach Ball baby quilt for basting followed by quilting, February bag on the month (oops, that’s a new project!), Frolic […]

Summer Sampler (TGIFF)

It’s a truth, that I do most of my quilting (as opposed to piecing) in the winter. I started quilting this one last winter, only to put it aside for other projects after we went into Covid lockdown. For a change, I started with the background, and I was very happy with the cone of […]

Mystery Quilting mid-way point

Here we are again, locked down due to the virus-that-must-not-be-named–this time, when I was planning to stay home anyway for the holidays. I’ll be logging in on Monday to check in on the 3 people who are also working, and putting together a proposal for a meeting I have after New Year’s. Leaving lots of […]
