Slow Stitching Sunday

Today I am on a mission….I am going to finish this last corner block of Sue Garman’s “Friends of Baltimore”.  After that I will sew the remaining half-square triangles that will be stitched to the edge of the border.  I told my family that I am having a “me day” and if they need me, I’ll be in my sewing room…with the door shut!  I am linking up to Slow Stitching Sunday, so go on over and check it all out!!

Yesterday I stopped at a delightful quilt shop in Shelburne, Ontario called “Cobwebs and Caviar”.  I spotted this spectacular fabric and just had to have some.  I have no immediate plans for it, I just had to have some!  It is by French General.DSCN6641

And, my hexies are coming along quite nicely.  Edyta Sitar has a new book called “Handfuls of Scraps” and I am using her quilt on the cover as a bit of a road map.

  1. Oh that is so lovely! I mean the Sue Garman Friends of Baltimore, the fabric and your hexies. Love all and every single one. I would like to do an applique quilt some day but Friends of Baltimore might prove a little too much for a beginner. But I do ♥. Enjoy your “day off”. 🙂

  2. I totally understand the need for a me day once in a while! Have fun stitching and I hope you don’t have too many interruptions. Lovely applique project!

  3. Love your quilt, oh to be so talented and I love the hexes, great ideas. Could I ask, when you buy material how much do you usually buy? Thanks Barbara Jones, Cyprus

  4. I am working on that same hexagon quilt. I bought her book love it. Are you making all hexagons for background of center the same fabric,or scrappy like hers. Bunny

  5. Kerry wrote: if they need me, I’ll be in my sewing room…with the door shut! – LOL. I can so relate. When your sew day is done, would you tell me what the name is of that French General? Looked online and can’t find it anywhere. Thanks, Kerry. Of course I love your projects.

  6. Well, I would like to lock the door to the Studio, cut the phone lines, and have absolutely not one interruption for 48 hours. What a dream. I love your work Kerry… so beautiful. I am so far behind my projects, but hoping by May things will settle down in our lives and I can get with the program. In the meantime, I love your Blog. Enjoy finishing your quilt, it is absolutely beautiful! Blue Ribbon Baby!

  7. Good for you having a me day. I think we all need those once in a while. Your applique looks beautiful. I hope you got your corner finished. Is there ever a time NOT to buy French General? 😉 Your hexies are looking beautiful!
