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………….

    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 :).


  2. 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. 🙂

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