What I am working on

The blocks are all built for Morgan's quilt, just need to be sewn together. I am still wondering about the backing, I like it as it reminds me of my Grandma....so at the same time wonder if it is too old fashioned. It is growing on me, love the purple.

Jordan's quilt is praying on my mind. Every time I mention sewing Jordan says"Jordan's quilt?" Don't know what the problem is as the top is finished and just needs to be sewn together.

Instead of the above two quilts I cut out another. Love the summery colours, very excited about this one!

Completed 3 more Lady of the Lake blocks! They are gorgeous, very happy with them. This project has been languishing for want of some organization. So sorted the cut squares for the frame around the blocks. Took some time but not the amount I had built it up to. 7 blocks done. It was the leader ender for my bee block so have enough HST's for a couple more! Bonus.

I also completed the blocks for my my star fall quilt. The pattern is in the current edition of Modern Quilt, by Faith Jones. Laid all the blocks out, very thrilled, it looks fabulous in the museum prints. I was going to sew it together and  realized I had neglected to trim the blocks. Surprise, they did not go together.

Finished my brothers blocks, just need to sew it together. It feels like a theme.

It was a very thinking rather than sewing day. Picked out four projects and cut out one. Three more to go. Love the cutting and planning.


  1. You need some thinking days in amongst the sewing ones! You have some great projects on the go.

  2. Oh wow, a lady in the lake! I admire your patience!

  3. always easier to start a new project than finish one up for me too. Lady of the Lake is on my to-do list

  4. Oh wow, I love Jordan's quilt!!! That is going to be stunning!

  5. Wow, your work is so wonderful.
