Yesterday Was National Quilt Day and I Took It Seriously

Got the quilting and embellishing done on the Opposites Attract needleturn applique. All it needs now is a hanging sleeve and we can tic one off for March.


First Convergence has had it's walking footwork done and a start at freemotion on two of the borders. Not sure what I'm going to do on the face of it yet. The other two borders are a different print, so obviously loosely following the fabric pattern isn't going to work. Need to put on thinking cap and rethread with green.

House is clean, laundry is done, it's been a fabulous Spring weekend, even if I spent it inside (I did have the windows open though).

All that's left is to make a back for the challenge quilt and put that together and I'll have all three pieces ready for the show drop off on April 17th. Woo hoo!

I've pulled out a wool felt Easter egg kit I bought last year and never got to, though I am seriously thinking about putting it back in the closet for next year rather than stress myself out not finishing that for Easter :)

Now if only I can shake the allergy/cold symptoms left over from last week's strep, before Friday's trip to Lancaster, life will be just peachy.


  1. Love.. Love.. Love... the black and white quilt. Really!

    My heart went pitter pat when I saw it, I swear.

    Glad you achieved a lot this weekand. It sounds like you had fun while you were doing it too.

  2. Holy Moley! Good for you for being so productive and it all looks marvelous! :D Hope you shake the crudie stuff soon.

  3. it looks like I am going to get to the show at the Fairgrounds next month even tho I now live in GA. and I never went to the Fairgrounds when I lived in Maryland. Will definitely look for your quilts there especially the black and white one. So far I have made 2 black and white ones and still have lots of black & white left over...wonder if I will ever use all of it....


I appreciate and look forward to your comments. Thanks for reading. Happy quilting!
