I really wish I had more to show! I have been working away on my hexie quilt and loving every moment of it. The top left corner is almost complete, then I will continue the dark brown border and then…well who knows? This quilt seems to be designing itself! My only goal was to use up all 5 meters of the beige background, which I have had in my stash for 8 years…8 years! Seriously, it’s time to let go!!
I have finished all of the background stippling on the eagle block of my “Friends of Baltimore”. Turns out stippling is very relaxing, soothing and almost hypnotic. Time stands still when I work on this block. Still not sure what I am going to do with those triangles…..
Because the background is so heavily quilted, everything pops out, like the flowers and leaves, which I love because it almost looks dimensional! The eagle is a little baggy and needs some quilting. So, this is the “before” picture and in my next post you will see the “after” picture.
Life is short and we are not supposed to sweat the “small stuff”. So, I am not going to worry about the cat hair anymore. I just purchased a bulk package of lint rollers and I am making really good use of them!
My new and improved website is still under construction and hopefully will be ready to launch the end of next week. You have probably figured out by now that I am a huge fan of Sue Garman and her wonderful applique patterns. So, I will be selling some of her patterns on my website. And, I will be doing one of her patterns, Bed of Roses, as a Quilt-Along, complete with fabric kits! Last night I prewashed the fabrics so I could get started on the first block. So exciting!
Til next time….

Oh Kerry, as always your work is beautiful. I am also a fan of Sue Garmen, can’t wait to see your kit for the Bed of Roses. Marge
You have been busy! Love the two quilts, the cat and the fabric in the sink. Looking forward to seeing your new website.
Your stipple quilting is to die for!! So gorgeous! I hope you’ll post lots of progress pictures of this quilt as your quilting progresses :0) The fabrics washing look very pretty – perfect for spring!
Beautiful work Kerry, I used to worry about cat hair all the time and then my kitties passed and now I truly miss all the cat hair. I must remember to count my blessings.
