Obsession is defined as the act of letting a thought or action rule your thoughts or actions. Ok, then, call me obsessed! I have been spending my time making hexies….every waking moment.
I have even graduated to Six Pointed Stars. Yikes! What next?
My Sunday Afternoon Applique met on Sunday and we had some awesome Show and Tell. Kathy F. stitched this gorgeous quilt, depicting a gazebo and some beautiful spring and summer flowers.
Take a close look at the back. Kathy F. in am impeccable stitcher!
Next, is Dolores’s quilt made of Civil War fabrics. Once it is quilted, it will hang in her front hall. Wouldn’t that be a treat to see every time you walked in your front door?
Helene’s block is beautiful! The quilt Helene is making has 16 of this same block. Can’t wait to see it finished! Check out the background. Spiffy!
And finally, I showed the group my finished Civil War Bride.
Til next time…
This time of year, spare time is a rare commodity. But I still managed to find the time to finish this block from Sue Garman’s “Friends of Baltimore”.
And here is a close up.
My Sunday Afternoon Group meets the third Sunday of every month so that means we meet this Sunday….already! Every year we begin a new project so I offered to design next year’s quilt. Here is a preview of the first block. They haven’t seen it yet, so mum’s the word!
I am taking the plunge and using my collection of batiks. (I’ve never really used batiks but somehow I ended up with an amazing batik collection!!) So far, I love them! The colours are so vibrant and saturated. The best part is the fabric does not fray. I am now an OFB… Official Fan of Batiks!
I pre-washed every last one of them…
…and Bruin found yet another (!) cat bed!
I have started the next block of The Civil War Bride. First, I stitched some branches and some leaves..
I used every inch of the branch fabric!
The tail feathers have me very intrigued! They seem to fit together like a puzzle. I love puzzles!
And here are the tail feathers just waiting to be stitched!
Til next time…
