Red and White Small Quilt To Be from Quilt Obsession

I had hopes, at the beginning of the year, of getting this, my red and white Canadian Starburst quilt (made with Feathered Stars and Sunflowers) , quilted in time for Canada Day as this is such a special Canada Day on July 1st, 2017 when Canada will be celebrating its 150th birthday. But that was not to be.

However, all hope of a little red and white quilt is not lost! When I was putting the Harpsichord Quilt project box away, I noticed a box with its lid slightly askew and knew I had an opportunity to make a small red ...

Saturday Summary from Pamela Quilts

This week felt like it went by really fast!  I've been struggling with a bit of lower back pain all week, it really flared up last Saturday so I've been trying to be careful not to make it worse.  A big pillow behind me in my chair in the living room helps, as well as remembering not to stay in one position for too long.  A bit of sitting, a bit of standing and moving, easy stretching and walking are the ticket.  With the Olympics on TV it is hard to remember to get up and move around ...
