Buhl Bushong Update from Humble Quilts

My design wall isn't very big, but I've managed to get a few more blocks ready to piece! I think I have 2 more to finish appliqueing then I'll start getting the top together. I still have corner buds to figure out...but hey! it's something! (my background fabric is not pink like the photo leads you to believe)

If you want to learn more about this quilt you can HERE. It is sponsored by The Virginia Quilt Museum.

I'm making a small quilt for a swapper who may have gotten the raw end of ...

Buhl Bushong April from Humble Quilts

I finished the April applique but am still behind on the center blocks. That will be my Sunday push!

So many little swap quilts winging their way across the country and the world! Just a reminder to get your quilt in the mail before May 9th. Overseas mail is being hung up and slowed down by lack of international flights.

I hope you are doing well!

Much love!

Buhl Bushong April from Humble Quilts

I've got a couple of large projects going and Buhl Bushong from the Virginia Quilt Museum is one of them.

 These blocks are ready to applique.
 This is lightly fused but think I'll be making a little change to this block.
I'm appliqueing these too and need to make headway on them!!

Cory and I are stealing away to the wilderness for a quick overnight jaunt. 

Take care
With love

Buhl Bushong Quilt from Humble Quilts

 The lighting in my sewing room isn't very good but here are my blocks so far. There are 16 total, YAY! Half way! The corners also have applique but will not do those until I start assembling the these blocks.

Anniversary Quilt 2020 update:
How do you all feel about continuing this quilt? There are many  quiltalongs going on, which I encourage you to do while we cannot be together in real life. Because ours was going to be spread out it isn't really a communal sewalong.  Someone already told me they'd like to set theirs aside ...

Monday! Monday! Bushong Quilt from Humble Quilts

 I was able to get in my sewing room the day after National Quilting day. Here is month 9. The middle of the last appliqued border.
I'll start getting the center blocks pieced. 1 is pieced, 8 are ready to assemble.

I opted outside on Saturday. 
 Early enough to enjoy the sunrise. 
and the three Sisters.

Made one more stop at a snowed over lake. It was a lot colder at that higher elevation than I had anticipated. Still so good to get some fresh air and clear perspective.

Let's make it a good week!

Buhl Bushong Update and Mardi Gras from Humble Quilts

 It is so hard to get a good photo of the long border. I tried outside but it was too breezy.  The lower one is the newest finish. 
I took this late last night so the color looks so weird. It really isn't pink! 

There will be a bud in the corner of this block. 

I'm in a local hiking group and we went out for a Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras hike!

Have a great weekend! 

Thanks you for your sweet comments on the bird blocks. I'm having a blast making them!

Buhl Bushong Update from Humble Quilts

My main project I wanted to work on at the retreat was my Buhl Bushong quilt from the Virginia quilt museum. See it HERE. 

 It is hard to photograph since it is long... working on borders. This one is done, except for the corners which we won't do yet.
I'm done with this section of the 3rd appliqued border. 
I am machine appliqueing with a tiny zig zag and matching thread. 
It is a lot of time at the machine!! 

So, at the retreat,  I announced to the ladies that I would stay focused and I estimated I ...

Countdown to 2020 from Humble Quilts

I'm always so sad to say goodbye to another Christmas season. 
Here's a peak into my world the last few days.

Working on a little Buhl quilt. The quarters will have sashing so they don't need to be perfectly symmetrical! (the blog is called Humble Quilts for a reason!LOL) 

And in the non- quilty front:

Danish aebleskiver for Christmas day brunch

They were on a  fancy platter with a dusting of powdered sugar, of course, no photo of the pretty ones.  They were yummy! We had mimosa's, coffee cake and fruit. 

Then we went for ...

Buhl Bushong from Humble Quilts

If you are in my facebook group you would have seen a couple of paper pieced arcs I shared. Over the weekend I had another idea after re-reading the directions several times. The original maker appliqued this block, so why not? And it will work with the machine applique that I do. This is my test block and although the photo was taken after the sun set and the photo is lousy, the quilt block will work for me!

I am really enjoying the Holiday Favorites Blog Hop and I hope you are too!
This is the link from Saturday ...

Buhl Bushong, Christmas and Winner! from Humble Quilts

Getting the second border prepped  for the Buhl Bushong quilt. I also need to start sewing the center portion. Soon...yes, soon.

I got our tree decorated and these sweet little beaded bells were made by my grandmother. 

The fog and hoarfrost is beautiful but also dangerous with the freezing fog making roads a sheet of ice. Glad I don't have to be out in it too much.

The winner of the vintage doily is Farm Quilter!
I'll get it in the mail as soon as I get your address!

I hope you'll visit Beth's blog ...

Buhl Bushong Border 1 from Humble Quilts

I actually have no clue where the name of this quilt comes from, only that Mary pressured me to indulge! LOL (She didn't really have to pressure too hard) 
I didn't have to look too far for the name of the quilt- terrific history of the quilt HERE.

I am finally done with my first border.

Here is the amazing quilt, which the pattern is being published by Virginia Quilt Museum. You can see for yourself at the link HERE.

I am behind, but have ordered red for the points and will start on the left border soon ...
