Borders


The top is finished!  Now to wait for DH to get the Gamill put back together and think about how to quilt it.  Maybe will use 1 Kings 7:36 as inspiration …

1 Kings 7:36  On the surfaces of its stays and on its borders he carved cherubim, lions, and palm trees, where each had space, with wreaths all around.

2080 Favourite Things


One day of the month left, I am determined to have this year’s first quilt top finished.  The main piecing was finished last weekend.  I am currently in the process of adding the second border.  It contains 2080 pieces, much of the fabric is from previous projects.  A friend called is a sea of love, I responded it is my palette of memory.  I was thinking of calling it The Sound of Music because it contains so many of my favourite things.  Once it is completed I will assign it it’s final name.  Here’s a little preview.

I Survived!


2015 arrived and I couldn’t stand it anymore. I had not quilted since June, 2014. Six months!  No fabric!  No cutting mats!  No sewing machine!

December 4th we moved into our ‘new’ home.  A 1947 character bungalow, big windows, hardwood floors, big back and front yards.  The kitchen is updated but the bathroom upstairs NEEDS renovating.

Once everything had been moved in and we had unpacked most of the necessities, I started searching through fabric boxes for something to work on.  I really don’t have the room to get at UFO’s at this time, so I started a new project, of course!  I have always wanted to do a postage stamp quilt and one of the first boxes I opened was a box of 2″ squares and strips.  Decision made!

When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces did you collect?” They said to him, “Twelve.”
