Lucy B Has Hit the Road from Quilts....etc.

That’s right the motorhome is on the road and Lucy Boston, Patchwork of the Crosses is traveling with us.  I think this quilt just adds a special touch to the camper.  It is too small for my bed at home, this bed in the camper is larger than a full, but smaller than a queen […]

Patchwork of the Crosses–Finished from Quilts....etc.

I am amazed that less than 4 months after I put Patchwork of the Crosses on the frame that I was taking it off and had it binded in 3 1/2 months after I started the quilting.  It is smaller than I would like – I realized after it had been on the frame for […]

Lazy Day from Quilts....etc.

Saturday was one of those days where I kind of drifted from one thing to the next.  I started the day with watering some plants outside and then sat on the porch to drink a cup of coffee and read awhile.  Finally I thought ok, I need to get something done today so I got […]

I got the Sunny Days quilt pin basted and it is now ready for me to do my machine quilting on – which will be straight lines and around the applique.  It shouldn’t take really long as it is a small quilt.  I’m not exactly sure though when I will start it  but for now […]
