It’s been a while…

So, it has been a while since I’ve posted last. I’ve moved, settled in a bit at my new place, and begun working on projects again. Right now, I’m working on peeling backing paper off of this beauty:


Once that’s done, I’ll actually start quilting her and get her ready to hang on the wall over the sofa!

Here’s a “reminder pic” of when she was still very incomplete…


Working on a Secret

So, I’ve decided to work on another quilt project while I’m waiting around at appointments and such. But it’s a secret project. I may reveal pieces of it, and serious quilters may recognize it. If you do, you can comment away! I’ve got two blocks done from when I started this a few years ago, but have a loooong way to go with it. So look for some periodic updates with blocks or progress on blocks! Thanks for all your support and for reading my somewhat infrequent posts.

All Eight 

Finally! I have all eight of the wedges assembled to the quilt I’m working on. This is two wedges like they’ll go together in the quilt. Tomorrow I can start sewing wedges into quarters of the quilt! Whew! So many pieces!

Back into the swing

I’ve been home from Paducah for a week now, and I’ve been slowly getting back into the swing of sewing again. After seeing every day for a week in Paducah, I have kinda slacked a bit after unpacking everything. 

Here’s my progress on a quilt kit I picked up in Paducah. Once I finish, I’ll reveal the name of the pattern in case you wanted to order it from where I got it (I’ll reveal that when I reveal the completed quilt top).

Paducah 2017

So, like a smart person, I’ve been an early bird to everything in Paducah this week. I’ve been early enough that I’ve had to sit and wait for shops to open. (but I got good parking!) Here’s the view yesterday of the wait I had. But I’m enjoying myself.

Good Friday

I’m desperately trying to find something to put up here for Good Friday. Ya’ll, the struggle is really real. I managed to get a workout in today, so I guess I’ll count my blessings. I’m getting more healthy.
