My crafting and family life journal

Ladybug and Daisy

Just finished a blackwork piece that I have been working on for the couple of months, just in time to start working in the gardens during my free time. I am really happy with the finished product.

This piece and another featuring a hummingbird will be worked into a quilt top.

Pretty in Pink

Another  UFO moved from the closet to the finish pile this weekend. After about five years of hand stitching cathedral window blocks my Pretty in Pink quilt is almost finished — just need to sew down the binding. I started this top when my youngest granddaughter was born, she is now in school and outgrown pink quilts. 😒

With all of the patterns within patterns created by the blocks I used a very simple quilt pattern to complete the project…Now to find a home for the project.

Circling the Sun

after almost two years (this one sat in the UFO pile a few times) I finally finished my paper pieced Circling the Sun quit top.

Now how should it be quilted? Any ideas?

Memory bedspread pieced!

With 10 years of fabric scraps and almost three spools of thread later my king size bedspread top is finished and ready to be sent off for long arm quilting. This the first truly scrap quilt that I have ever made. The project brought back some lovely memories and helped me let go of some issues I have with mixing patterned fabrics.

First project finish for 2017

Just finished my first craft project of the year. This Blackwork project is 160 x 160 on a 14 count lavender fabric. The entire project took about seven weeks to complete.
