By the numbers

5 quilts tied, 1 lobster roll eaten – expect those numbers to climb over the new few days!

As usual, Bev has my tying table all set up and ready with a LARGE roll of batting! My binding buddy Rebecca, didn’t make the sew-in this year and I’m missing her but Brenda and Jackie are going to fill in and bind the quilts that I tie. Brenda took the first day and Jackie is on binding duty tomorrow.

We work long hours but time out was taken for dinner … a lobster roll sitting by the water … it doesn’t get better than this!


  1. Looks just beautiful there, and that lobster roll is amazing!! I love those quilts! Do you have instructions on your website? It would be a great way to use up some of my stash. Have fun with your quilting friends!

    • I sure hope there are some instructions SOMEWHERE because I’m seriously in love with those quilts… one & all!!!

  2. It’s been a long time since I’ve tied quilts but I’m thinking about going back to it. I’ve used, yarn, embroidery floss (often with Fray check to prevent the slick floss from un-tying) and crochet thread. Is crochet thread your preferred product? Do you use, I don’t know what it’s called, although I’ve seen people do it (there probably is a You Tube video) where you use long lengths of thread from place to place and THEN cut and tie or do you do each as an individual stitch and knot? I hope you know what I’m speaking of! Thank you for any suggestions or helpful hints.

  3. You’re killing us with these posts! I’ll take several… both of the quilts AND the lobster rolls! Eat one & tie one for me!

  4. I’m glad you got to go back to Maine this year with the Heartstrings group! I’ve always enjoyed seeing your pictures of Maine and the gorgeous quilts you all out together!

  5. Your quilts are fantastic!

    You know, I’ve never had a lobster roll. Well, I’ve never been to Maine and lobsters are too expensive in Japan anyway…
