Happy Easter – Slow Sunday Stitching

Happy Easter and may you have a peaceful day. The weather is nice here in South Texas, but summer is a coming this week – into the 90’s! We have scheduled a week away to Durant Oklahoma and a Casino Visit! I am so looking forward to this trip. It has been over 20 months since we have been able to take a trip. It is so wonderful to have a trip to plan. We will mask up and go listen to all the noise and I will come home refreshed and ready to quilt and just enjoy life!

Today is Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy! I have been working on my Indian Summer quilt and am almost finished with the “mountain” side of the quilt. I should be able to finish this portion today. Then I will study the 3 borders and decide what to do next. Jaydee always tells me that the quilt will let me know what to do next! I am listening! LOL

The last week I have been pampering myself with some French General fabrics. Clay and I visited the Mesquite Bean Shop in San Antonio about a week ago and I picked up 2 pieces of the line along with some 108″ backing fabrics. If you purchased the end of the bolt you received 10% off and 2 of the bolts that I liked were a little over 4 yards each – fairly good buy.

I purchased some French General Fat Quarters last year – in fact I accidentally purchased 2 of the Le Beau Papillon packages – think I was not thinking! LOL But the fabric will not go to waste! The first fat quarter bundle I purchased was from their Chafarcani line. I purchased 2 yards of Chafarcani and La Rose Rouge from the Mesquite Bean Shop. I did not have any of that line so I went shopping at Hancocks of Paduchah and found 3 sets of fat quarters to be able to make another French General quilt. I love the reds that they have and all of the entire lines will go together. French General has been around a long time, but I am just now getting to where I wanted something different and this is it!

OMIGOSH is a quilt top! I have auditioned fabric for the border and decided on a nice reproduction red. I am going to follow the pattern with a 1″ finished border of the red and Bella solids and then a 4″ border of the red. There are 5,400 pieces in this quilt. It will be approximately 56″ x 66″.

Have a wonderful Easter and a great week and happy stitching!

    1. I do hope that the fabric is easier to work with on the next quilt. OMG is a OMG! It is amazing how much better I feel to have something fun to look forward to. I am starting to go to the grocery store locally and not do curbside anymore. Hugs
