It’s Monday

The blocks on my design wall haven’t changed since last week but I did get a HeartStrings top quilted this morning. I used a backing sent to me by Nancy and got it loaded and quilted with Baptist Fans. Unlike the last ones I quilted that went every which way, these are quilted in rows.  The top was pieced by Sue and her Oroville/Chico California group.

For more information on how I quilt my freehand Baptist Fans see this post on quilting Baptist Fans.

Judy asked another good question on her blog about how long it takes you to feel antsy when you’re not sewing/quilting. For me, just a day or two is usually enough to make me want to be back in the sewing room and although I don’t always take a project with me on my trips — I did take some crochet this time. I didn’t get as much done on it as I’d have liked but I have another trip in a few weeks so I’ll take it with me on that too. It’s just a simple ripple pattern but the yarn is a cute variegated one.

    I am the same- takes me about 2-3 days and then I need to have soemthing to do. I do love to read, but still need to be creative!

    Good thing you sent that reminder to change our bookmarks on the old blog site. I didn’t know if your blog would still come through in Google Reader or not. Apparently NOT. This one comes in as “Making Quilts from Stash”, and the Old one was ‘Mary Quilts ……’. I think I’ve gotten those name correct. Anyway, just now took out the old, added the new. What would I do without my daily inspiration?;-)
    This blog doesn’t appear to have the verification thingy– those scrambled letters to keep out spam?

  • Mary, how pretty! I’m so happy you took some crochet along. I missed that sitting on top of the roof rack as I was. Bugs in my teeth and all that…

  • Ruth:

    The latest quilt looks fabulous. Cute yarn and the pattern works perfectly with it.
