Unfinished Projects from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

This is kind of surprising for me . . in a good way. I only have five unfinished cross stitch projects! On the other hand, I only have five completed projects but I hope to whittle down those unfunished projects, though I certainly wouldn’t mind if I kept five UFOs. That’s a workable number for...

Blackbird Design SAL from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Brenda and the Serial Starter are two very funny ladies whose flosstubes I love. They aren’t the ones who try to be funny but they crack me up. Brenda is more reserve, more methodical. Laura . . oh, my! She buys every chart, the fabric, the floss and she starts so many projects .. hence,...

 All the blocks are done for "Miss Emilie's Garden".  Now they need trimmed, sashing added and then to applique the borders.

during the Stay at Home directive in MA.

I've been making masks and mailing them to family and friends,

The last block of 'The Raven' is complete.

Buhl Quilt Update and Farmer's Market from Log Cabin Quilter

March found me still working on the top border for the Buhl quilt.  The monthly patterns have divided the borders into parts so the applique is manageable to be able to accomplish before the next set of patterns is available.  This month, I added the flower on the left and two flowers on the right hand side.


I started working on a new quilt project.  It is "Farmer's Market" and is found in the Blackbird Design's book "Fresh Picked".    There are ten applique blocks.  Five designs and you make two of each.  The second set is reversed from ...
