Hello from the mixed up weather in South Texas. Where I have to go outside before I know how to dress for the day! But it could be worse, blizzards and snow piled high up to the door! So for now I will take the beautiful day we are having because tomorrow or Tuesday it goes back to dreary! If only we could get some rain!!!
Life has been so calming since the decision to not show my quilts this year (maybe next year at Austin), the refrigerator mess has been resolved (whew!), and then to end the 3 bad things – someone compromised my credit card! But that is OK life is so much quieter and low stress than the years 2014-2018! I am in Quilter’s Heaven believe it!
I have completed my Capital “T” quilt! I was inspired by Bella in November with a SAL. About 2 weeks ago, she had to completely stop working on the computer, stopped the SAL, and had to remove her Blog. How sad for me. So I will dedicate this quilt to Bella who spent an inordinate amount of time in the research of the Capital “T” block! It was a quilt that I had wanted to make for a long – l-o-n-g time and she inspired me to do it! It is now a Flimsy, waiting on the rack to be quilted! The quilt measures at 65″ x 65″ a nice size to quilt and enjoy!
My Capital “T” inspired by Bella!
I am so very pleased with this quilt and will remember who inspired me to do it! Thank you Bella!
Now on to the next thing. DECISION TIME! If one starts a project in 2015 and one tends to drag their fee on it – it is time to close down the project. This is what I am going to do with A Bountiful Life project. I have 8 blocks finished with 2 remaining to applique (already prepped in 2018 – I think). After I finish these blocks I will stop and make a 9 block A Bountiful Life quilt! Almost halfway and this will be OK with me. What is one more quilt to be hand quilted anyway? I have become bored with it and moving on to other projects, like Stonefields and Dresden Heaven.
This is Block 8 for A Bountiful Life that I started working on last night.
Block 8 – Love those Berries!
I will be quilting my Heart quilt this afternoon and since it is small I will strive to complete it today (latest tomorrow).
I have completed the embroidery for Susan’s SAL I believe I am ahead by getting the 4 embroidery blocks completed so this will provide me time to do some long arm quilting.
I found this wall hanging embroidery pattern that I had started in 2018 when I was going crazy looking for my Red 12 wt Embroidery Thread for the SAL. So it will also be done – no special time for it. I purchased in on 13 December 2017, the day I came home and became sick for 2 months with the Flu – ah how we do not forget the important things in our lives! LOL. I found it by the French General fabric collection and thought I would whip it out quickly. That has not happened yet…..
AND, the winner for the remainder of February and March is…..my next project is Star of Chamblie!!!! In 2013 I was beginning to start work on this project but had to delay it. I am THINKING that I will make it a Blue and White Feathered Star quilt! I am ready to get away from Red for awhile! It will be a Blue and White quilt using Moda Marble Mate Blue and Marsha McCloskey’s fabric for the background!
I did make a practice Radiant Feathered Star block in 2013 in Black and Brown.
Well, this is all I have to show today! I am always happy when I complete a project. Now that I have the fabric selected, I will go quilt Hearts, and tomorrow will start on Star of Chamblie! Let’s hope for a peaceful, quiet week for all!
