Coming Home Progress Report from The Cozy Quilter

My husband and I went to visit our daughter for the long weekend so on our way there and back, I stitched in the car.  I brought along the house borders for "Coming Home" and got all the doors and windows and clouds appliquéd.  There was a lot of traffic in spots so I had more sewing time in the car than I usually get on our way to where my daughter lives. 

I just bought the material for the window and door on this house a couple of weeks ago specifically for this project. It reminds me of balls ...

Windows and Doors from The Cozy Quilter

I spent some more time appliquéing this week on my Coming Home quilt borders.  The top cloud is done... and I am still working on the bottom border in this picture. Sometimes, I am ready a bit early for work in the morning, and so I do a bit of stitching before I have to leave for work.  Every little bit counts!

This house is done now...

And I am still working on this one:

After I finish the door above, I will be working on the cloud above it.  There will be birds, kites, and stars added too, but ...

Pop-Up Picnic from The Cozy Quilter

Earlier this week, I finished off the appliqué for the second sun corner block for my Coming Home BOM.  The points got easier as I went along! This morning, I prepped the clouds as well as doors and windows for the houses. 

This afternoon, the London Modern Guild hosted a Pop-Up Picnic at the Marsh Store in Coldstream.  A dozen of up brought our lawn chairs, our snacks, and our hand work projects for an afternoon of relaxing in the shade of a large tree as we stitched and knitted the afternoon away. Of course, there was an opportunity for ...

A Little of This and a Little of That from The Cozy Quilter

I have worked on a variety of hand sewing projects in the past week. I finally got back to working on my Coming Home BOM designed by Sarah Fielke.  There is a lot of applique to do for the next couple of steps so I am making an effort to get caught up.  There are two crescent moons and two suns in the current border.  I did the moons last weekend and this weekend, I am working on the suns.   I appliquéd the circles onto the yellow sun rays today at the London Modern Quilt Guild meeting. 

Both suns are ...

Coming Home is Coming Along. from The Cozy Quilter

I (finally!) finished appliquéing my last two tulip blocks for my Coming Home BOM project this week. It was fun picking out fabrics for each flower and the leaves. 

All four blocks...done!

The points got easier with each tulip I stitched.

I put this together last night and put it up on the design wall for a picture.  I stressed a lot about colour choices for this part of the quilt.  It will be a queen sized quilt so there are 9 more months of blocks and borders to make.  The next border consists of little houses, some of ...

Tulips! from The Cozy Quilter

I have been working on hand appliquéing my tulip blocks for my Sarah Fielke Coming Home BOM this week.  The two magenta tulip blocks are completely done and I am now working on the top right turquoise block.  The stem is done and I am just starting the leaves...

I'm getting better at those inside points and the curves with each leaf and tulip...

Christine was at my house for sewing night one evening this past week so I made the 12 house blocks included in last month's instructions.  The next step will be out on Tuesday so ...

Finding One’s Voice from Where Art & Life Meet

In January I had the opportunity to go to one of Sue Spargo‘s fabulous workshops in Tucson, Arizona, a place I’d never been. While there I met some lovely people, one of whom was Anna Bates, who has a blog, Woolie Mammoth, a YouTube channel – Quilt Roadies, and blogs for The Quilt Show once… Continue reading Finding One’s Voice
