I write. I quilt. I cook. I take photographs. What else is there?

Dresden Plates

Remember these?


I thought it would be cool to alternate them in the line with smaller purple string blocks.


Maybe even throw some applique on them.


But I didn't like the way it looked.  The little blocks seemed to distract from the Dresden Plates, so those will be saved for another (not too far away) project.  Instead, I mounted my blocks with these lovely purple setting blocks.  


Next, I'll put on the borders.

Trapunto

I took this lovely floral quilt and trapuntoed the applique.  It's set aside again now to wait for some border blocks with more applique to be made.  Meanwhile, I have 3 pregnant women who need baby quilts.

Weekend Retreat

I attended a weekend retreat via Skype with my group:  Joan, Joanne, Raewyn.  Three of us made the same quilt.  Both Raewyn and Joanne have pics of their little quilts posted; you can click the links above and you'll see them.  Here's mine:


I did some very simple SID around the blue blocks and chose to concentrate my efforts on the applique.  It's for my SIL.  I think she'll like it.

See my little frog in the corner of the photo?  He was originally made to hold soap in the bathroom.  He does a much better job holding my basting pins.

Can you believe this is my first finish of 2014?  I have another very close.  And the pretty floral applique has been put aside to be made into a full-sized quilt.


Thanks for Visiting! Come Back Soon!
