HQAL 26 August 2018 – Nesting is a Flimsy and My 250th Post!

Good morning!  I guess I am getting used to the heat – at least I only spend about 35 minutes in it during my morning walk.  Other than that – it is in the 70’s inside!  I hate to see the electric bill this month, but at least we have been very comfortable!  Maybe Canada will send us an early Fall.  This is probably wishful thinking!

I have just finished all the work on Nesting!!!!  It is now on the infamous “to be quilted” rack!  I am so pleased with this quilt.  The first time I made a block was for a Quilt Show donation project!  I believe I started this quilt in 2017 and poor baby was ignored too many times for what reasons I cannot remember at this time!  But it is a pretty flimsy and ready for hand quilting – not now though.  I will have to have it completed by next June, but will start quilting sometimes in the late Fall!  Always feels so good to complete a project!!!!

I changed the original border because the Designer did not provide an adequate picture of her version.  I decided to put the group of 4 leaves in each corner and mirror imaged the vines!

Have a great Sunday and week!  My next hand projects (UFO’s) are Mountmellick and Brinton Hall.

    1. Thank you for the compliment – When will you be sending a Canadian Cold front this Fall to Texas (LOL). I did not think your area would experience this – guess it will be a trip to the North Pole to get cold again! Take care


  1. Happy dance! Yay! Nesting looks beautiful; I look forward to seeing how you quilt it! I live very close to the Canadian border, and I can tell you, we are all in this drought together. Not to mention suffering from many wildfires, and smokey air. We missed summer, and are hoping for a pleasant fall. Bring on the rain!


  2. Hi Nanette! Wow, congrats on your 250th post. Even more amazing is your flimsy finish. It is beautiful – I really love how you finished off the border. Happy Monday, friend! ~smile~ Roseanne


  3. It’s good to see a finish, even if it is only one part that is done. I’m so happy for you in this accomplishment. That is a lot of work!
