Not much to report...


We have a visitor this weekend!


I have been making more crumb blocks in spare moments...I will sew a line or two or three in the odd moments o the day.  If I am cooking, I will sew a few lines, then go stir or turn or do whatever needs to be done.  Then sometimes I actually get to sit and hour or two.


I have made 14 of these 9½ inch blocks over the past few days.  I have 3o more down in the basement.  I don't want to make a quilt of them till I have time to actually quilt it.

Daughter ordered fabric for the backing of the Lotus quilt and I ordered batting....just today.  She took a bit of time to choose the backing.

A friend of mine asked me how many quilts I am working on...and I am not quite sure how to answer.  I have enough of these crumb blocks for a quilt top I think--at least for a twin quilt.

And I have enough of the Falling Charms for a twin quilt, also.  But mostly I am just waiting on everything to get here to finish the Lotus quilt.

That is the sweetest looking child! Just makes you want to hug her. I love those quilt squares. Now that's the kind of quilt I want to make.

Thanks for sharing the lovely pictures! Beautiful girl and lots of fun blocks. I find it so soothing to make log cabin blocks out of scraps.

What a pirate! I love to see patchwork done properly like yours. I can only attempt blocks at the moment. One day I'll attempt to be more adventurous! Have a lovely Sunday x

Lorelei looks beautiful in her pirate costume. What a lovely guest to distract you from your quilting. And those quilt squares look beautiful. The finished quilt will be stunning when you get it done. With such major projects I can totally understand how you'd have several of them on the go at any one time.

My goodness, Lorelei is so adorable Rose, I love her pirate costume and that sweet smile. As for your quilts I always admire them so much. The work and the time and the craftsmanship is phenomenal. Wish I could quilt but it makes me so happy to see yours :)
