I can always find time to stitch……

Even when I am on vacation, I can always find time to stitch.  My husband, Paul, and I are taking a much needed vacation in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Visiting Cape Breton, especially the Cabot Trail, should be on everyone’s Bucket List.  The scenery is nothing short of breathtaking!

Of course, I take my applique with me everywhere I go!

Whenever I travel, “being packed” means having my prepped block, my thread, my scissors, and my thimble….oh and some clean clothes!

Before we left for holidays, we finally hung my quilt, Reminiscence, a pattern by Lydia Quigley, in the front entrance.

Notice how some of the nine-patches in the sashing are a darker blue?  Most people think that was done on purpose!  But here is what really happened…but remember…mum’s the word! I carefully cut, stitched and counted the many, many, nine-patch units.  When it came time to put the quilt together, I was short 15 nine-patch units.  Of course, the fabric was discontinued and I could not get any more.  I decided to make the missing nine-patches out of navy blue fabric and then place them strategically in the sashing. I am sure one day I will find a baggie full of the missing nine-patches!

Here is a close up.  The machine quilting was expertly done by Rose at Elite Quilting.  Rose brings all my quilts to life!!

And here is the label.

Til next time…..
