It's been been a few months since I last posted, but trust me, you haven't missed out on much. And the pictures I have to share are barely more than updates to the ones I shared 3 months ago. Sad.
I've been SLOWLY working on my hexie English paper piecing project. I'm almost ready to add one more large diamond section to this.
I gave in and did something I thought I'd never do. I sent two of my biggest pieced tops out to be long arm quilted. Between my breathing problems and a really bad shoulder I just didn't see myself getting these done myself on a domestic sit down machine.
So while I still find it hard to shake the feeling I've somehow "cheated" in calling these "my quilts", they are finally out of the UFO stack (and I have the unquilted tops down to THREE..WOW!).
It's hard to get a good picture when quilts are this big and these were taken before either were bound. Perhaps I'll get a chance to hang them and take better pictures later.
This stack 'n whack was made in 2009 after a workshop by a fellow quild member. I told you earlier that it was outside my comfort zone colorwise, but Tom loves it so I told him it is his 25th anniversary present. We are calling it "The Big Bang".
This is the Threadhead Quiltalong that I made last year.
I did manage to quilt the sofa sized top for my mother-in-law. We'll give it to her on her 90th birthday next Saturday in Colorado.
I love the Vera Bradly fabric I found in my stash for the border and backing.
That's it folks...my quilting life has become pretty boring. A fourth Dutch
Treat keeps calling my name!
