This week in my corner of the world.

This is the front and  back of a Sampler Block of the Month quilt I did for a customer. I quilted it using the Circle Lord Baptist Fan template. In came out very nice in spite of the thread breaking more than I liked.


The weather has also warmed up and our Peony bloomed nicely this week. They sure are pretty but the don't seem to last very long.

Last, but not least before dh went walk about he put up two raised beds for me to use. I'm going to plant some greens veggies and try some cantaloupe and see if I can get anything to grow. They will have a retractable top on them so I can protect them from the birds. They should look and act like mini greenhouses. We'll see how that works.

Unvieling the Stage

Today was the day all DH's musical friends come over to cookout, eat and make music. They got the important things out of the way first:
Once that was taken care of they started playing some music.
It was a lovely day today, not to hot just a light breeze and everyone had a good time.

March Finish

This is my finish for March. It is a kit from Connecting Threads which I've had quilted for a year or so just needed binding. Finally have it bound and washed. These for some reason aren't some of my better pictures, but it is a really pretty quilt. It measures about 52' x 72". Haven't decided if I'll sell any of these quilts yet or keep them around. Hope to get caught up in the next few weeks.

This is my February Finish. It was a 20 piece Jelly Roll which I did like the youtube video of the Jelly Roll Race. I really like the fall colors and I used a Kona Bay fabric for the back and binding. I quilted it with a new pantograph of leaves which came out very nice. I'm binding my March Finish so hope to be posting it soon.

January Finish

 This is my finish for January. It is a kit from Connecting Threads and I provided the backing and binding. I quilted this with the pantograph called Double Rose Vine. I don't know if you can see it or not, but it looks like the roses are following the barn raising pattern of the quilt.
