Welcome the Spring ‘warm’ Wednesday…………….

Sorry, friends, that’s the best I can do with a title for today’s post! We’ve been back 2.5 weeks and the Texas warmth has, for the most part, followed us home…..yay!!!

IMG_8697     Don’tcha just love all the early flowers??!!!!

Last Monday was my larger quilt group gathering in Spring Grove,MN. A few photo highlights……….IMG_8709 IMG_8713 IMG_8711 IMG_8712 IMG_8714IMG_8717IMG_8720IMG_8721IMG_8722IMG_8719IMG_8723IMG_8724IMG_8726IMG_8728IMG_8729IMG_8730IMG_8731IMG_8735

So many beautiful finishes!

My challenge piece is in the final stage of blocking (almost dry) and the binding, rod pocket and label will be added today…….IMG_8736 Even after such dense stitching, in some areas, this was in better shape than many tops I’ve done.

The next client quilt is under the machine……IMG_8737 This is a hand-pieced beauty, made by the client’s grandmother-in-law (I believe), that is getting an E2E (Edge to Edge) paisley motif. When finished, it will have a feather-stitched effect that will add to the heirloom feel of this one……IMG_8742and a view of the muslin backing…….IMG_8743

A quick thread-painting type stitching will be added to this pretty little thing.IMG_8738   A “fellow member” of the Spring Grove group created this one but she encountered some difficulty when it came to stitching on the flowers themselves. IMG_8739   Multiple layers of fusible can result in skipped stitches (broken needles) and so I’m going to have some thread fun! IMG_8741 

Well, that’s it for now. As you can see, my “up North” schedule is back in place and the stitching is at a bit of a “hyper” speed. I love your visits and, as always, send you hugs and blessings for a beautiful day!

Now……let’s go create………….

    It was lovely over the weekend but the last two days wet and today dry and cold. Good weather for quilting.

  3. You’re right back at it, into the thick of quilting in Minnesota. Thanks for the show-and-tell, one of my favorite parts of your blog. 🙂

    I doubt I will ever be a quilter or knitter. Too impatient! lol. But I sure do love to look at all the orrery quilts you post here :).
