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 Kathy! I will try to get it in the hoop during the Fall! I bought this old pattern at a Quilt Show when I first started to quilt – $3.00 – Cheap, but such a beautiful quilt! Hugs

    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. Oh the joy of a finish! I am hoping for an early fall and I am thankful August was not as miserable as July!


  2. 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!


  3. I very much like the bird blocks. And especially like the nest of eggs in the border. Well done!


  4. 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


  5. 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!
