One last binding done to finish up March. This one was pieced by Mary in Maine and quilted and bound by me. It will go to Maine this fall when I go up for the HeartStrings sew-in (hopefully). Pantograph is Kindle and while I usually photograph quilts outside during the day, I am leaving before dawn and I actually kind of like seeing all the texture from the quilting in this light tonight.

This is a larger 16 patch from a online pattern that I’ve also made several times. The website is no longer active but I found the page in the web archives if you’re interested. It’s perfect for fat quarters!

I did OK for March considering the travel and the other things going on. I finished everything I had on my list to do including completing one UFO of mine and even got a little more than I expected to get done.

  • pieced the Chisel Star top
  • quilted 3 tops
  • bound 6 quilts
  • made some progress on the pink knit blanket (it’s going slow but there is progress!)


  1. I love, love, love this quilt, Mary! The colors are so soothing & the pattern is perfect (did you say you had the pattern for this?). I, too, love the way the panto catches the light. This one is a super success! Your March list was a doozy so good on you for getting so much done on it! You put us all to shame! I feel like such a slacker… LOL!

  2. Very nice quilt, very mellow. I hope you have a safe, but fun trip, to Big Canoe and that your new home is exactly what you wanted for retirement.

  3. That quilt has a very “gentle” calm feel to it. Very nice texture with the quilting you chose.

  4. I like the quilt very much. I do have a set of FQ’s to bust, perfect pattern for that. Bet it would look good with small jelly roll sized blocks. Thank you for the link to pattern.
    Best wishes on your journey to a new home. Looks like a great place to live. Wonder if there is an equestrian center nearby ? 😉
