Hydrangea Quilt from Becca's Crazy Projects

The mother of one of my co-workers found out I am a quilter. She is a very new quilter and wanted some help quilting one of her quilts. After some back and forth through email, we agreed on the quilting and she sent the top, batting, and backing along to me.

I loaded the quilt up and looked at the great piecing and grabbed a couple colors of thread that I thought would work with the front and the backing. 
I liked the cream-colored thread better, and she agreed. I recommended an all-over flower design found in Angela Walter's ...

Beautiful Double Wedding Ring, updated to-do, and blah, blah, blah from caledonia quilter

As you may or may not know, I have been working on a double wedding ring quilt for several years.  I complete one row per year when I'm on retreat up in Tobermory with the Beach Girls.  Every once in a while the Universe teases me, and has a customer bring one for quilting.

This is so pretty.  I just love these quilts and look forward to someday completing my own.

Nice plain back that shows off the quilting.

word games from Making A Lather

Hubby and I had a fun trip to the Greencastle Indiana fiber fair. It was a wonderful splash of color at the festival and along the drive.
My Mother attended Depauw university and my Aunt Betty worked in the offices there. After all these years, I was still able to find my way to where she lived.


Time to play boggle with my alphabet letters for April rainbow scrap challenge.

I finished a green one and an aqua block that I didn't see how it was supposed to be set, so they are without the settings. They will finish at 4 1/2 inches


I finished the string umbrella. After I add the settings, they will finish at 7 inches.


And, I had a lot of fun making ...

sand castles from Making A Lather

I had the string piecing bug last week, and when it hits, it's best to go with it. I think I was primarily anxious to clean up the mess. I worked on sand castles. I am half way through the blocks I need, with most of them trimmed and depapered.


While I was cleaning I would pick up any stray small pieces, and add them to a strip of adding machine tape. I had found a bag of adding machine tape at goodwill recently, and thought I would try using them for string piecing. It was fun. It's ...
