So my blogging skills are not what they once were. I thought finally getting a phone would help with the photos but I still have to transfer them to my computer as writing anything of length is painful on a phone and the voice translator is not my friend. Not as bad as this mind you, but still:
I have been trying to work through my WIP’s/PIGS etc. I finally quilted my Cuppa quilt, which was the Sue Spargo BOM in 2016. I really enjoyed this one! I am almost finished with Greenbrier as well, just waiting for some cooler weather!
I finished Scandinavian Christmas, a pattern by Lynette Anderson that I had been wanting to do for several years. I did it almost completely in French General fabrics and really love how it turned out:
I even entered my Austin Bluebird Sampler in our guild show finally. I quilted it just after a workshop with Cindy Needham so i was playing with all sorts of templates on it. I would love to re-do some of these blocks in different fabrics:
This year I signed up for Jen Kingwell’s Pretty Circle Game BOM and I am loving putting these blocks together. There are templates for each block which really make it simple to get an accurate block. This picture was on a rather cloudy day, but you get the idea. These are all hand pieced and have lots of luscious fabrics like lawns and double gauze. I can’t wait to see them all in the final quilt!
This BOM has turned me into a bit of an #amitieaddict, and I have started Green Beans and Sweet Tea, another Jen Kingwell pattern, this time with a bit brighter palette including Jen’s Beach Road fabrics which I just love! These propellor blocks are almost finished (again, all hand pieced!!):
For those days when I haven’t had time to prep any quilting handwork there is the Coffee Quaker sampler, a cross stitch pattern by Heartstring Samplery:
And finally, instead of a cat here is our little pup Finnegan. He’s a cute and cuddly little guy who likes to snuggle 🙂
Hopefully the next update won’t take a year…
