Some Vintage Linens

Posted by Rebecca Sundberg on April 27, 2015 at 5:23pm 2 Comments

The first one is this little coverlet which was appliqued and embroidered by my mother-in-law in 1934 as she awaited the birth of her first child.  Regrettably, the baby was not to be, and it wasn’t until 1943, when she and my father-in-law adopted my DH as an infant that this coverlet finally was put to the use for which it was intended. Unlike a quilt, this coverlet is just two layers of cotton with no batting in between. The blocks were machine pieced and the top was closed after turning…

Thought I would let you all know about the Ziggy Table Runner blog I wrote for last Friday on Notions. The project was a small runner for a secretary/dresser in a guest bedroom for foreign exchange students. I've been making projects for the room in a neutral palette. Please click …

Quilt Show Results!

Posted by Carol Ann Hinton on April 27, 2015 at 10:58am 8 Comments

As I have been boring you all this month with my entries at a local quilt show, I thought I'd just give you a brief note on the results.

The show was wonderful -- so much talent in the neighborhood!  There were more than 200 entries and the big barn of a building at the fairgrounds was filled to overflowing.  I have never seen so many really excellent quilts in this show!

The competition was stiff, and I was fortunate to get a First Place for Cranberry Bear! (see my post "Quilt…

The weather has warmed up a bit, and our bulbs are emerging.

We also have daffodils, as do our neighbors. The ski resorts closed after Sunday's operation. Soon they will gear up for taking mountain bikers up the hill to ride down. DGD1 brought home her snowboard and boots to store until…

Journals

Posted by Ally Bryant on April 26, 2015 at 8:33pm 7 Comments

I know this isn't quilt related but I see other post other things so thought you might like to see what I have been working on.

These three journals are my samples for the Christmas in Paris (Ontario) sale in Nov.

Two of them have thread painting on and the other I tried my hand…

Projects On Time

Posted by Joanne Grimes on April 26, 2015 at 5:02pm 2 Comments

Hi, Well I haven't been posting for awhile because the projects I was working on had a hard fast deadline. Who has time to take pictures and updates a blog when a deadline looms? I did get done with both of them just in time!

Here's the Walking…

Can do with a little less excitement! ;-)

Posted by Terri D. on April 22, 2015 at 8:22pm 9 Comments

Guess my darling hubby and I must be getting too big for our britches and needed a wakeup as to what is important in life. LOL. Last Friday we went to the gym and met with our individual personal trainers for the second week of our "going to get healthy, do it right, or bust" mantra for the new year. Now keep in mind that we have been going to the gym off and on for the past two years we've been here in Florida and all without a problem. Ray has gone more than I have due to my spinal surgery…
