Beautiful quilt, Janet. I too like the red which sets the design off very nicely. I know what you mean about Bonnie's patterns. And the pieces are often small, I would definitely machine quilt.

Thanks Donna.  It was a fun quilt to make although a bit time consuming.  Most of Bonnie's quilt patterns are though.

Thank you Janet!  

I love your Bricks in the Barnyard quilt!  The red makes it POP!  

We are doing better but it has been so hot here in the valley, not much sewing going on.  But I still keep getting more and more ideas on patterns that I want to make, or I see something that catches my eye and a new idea pops into my head!  Been doing a little sorting and fondling of fabric.

Donna, your granddaughter is adorable.  That is the same age I taught my DGD Cheyenne how to do simple piecing.  I hope your husband is doing well.

I finally finished piecing the Bricks in the Barnyard top I started in a Bonnie Hunter workshop 2 or 3 years ago.  My friend Becky is going to add her magic to it this fall as she is a fabulous longarm quilter.

Hello Everyone!  I haven't done any quilting or sewing for the past month.  Hubby had a mini stroke at the end of March and I have been keeping busy with him, keeping appts, making sure he is eating properly, picking up grandkids from school, etc.  Thankfully, he is on the mend and no longer needs therapy, but still cannot drive, and tires easily in the afternoons.   

I am just now getting back to my sewing now that I know he is going to be okay.  I have a lot of catching up to do and many projects to work on.  I was going to do a sale with a friend of mine in April but that got pushed to the side with hubby, and now I have a huge bin full of fabric that needs to find a new home.  I plan to take it to the guild next week, put a sign on it, Free to Good Home, and let them take what they want.  The rest will go to the guild.  Don't worry, it didn't make a dent in my stash at all!

On a lighter side, my granddaughter, Annalee aged 4, has been coming over after preschool and I have been teaching her how to sew.   She will be 5 in a few days and I bought her the Sew Cool Toy Sewing Machine for her birthday.  She's not quite ready for a real machine yet, but when she is a little older, then she can use one of mine.  We made a doll together yesterday, she put the stuffing in and colored the face in.  She took it home before I had a chance to get a picture of it.  We also made a table runner together back in March, she even got to help use the machine (pushing the start and stop button) and cutting the threads.  She loves coming over and helping me and I truly enjoy our time together!  Here is a picture of her.  

Sorry this is so long, thank you for letting me share.

It is very pretty Sherri.

Althiough the pattern name is "Springtime in Ambleside"  I am calling it my "Broken Ankle Quilt"  .  JUst another piece to go into the UFO pile until I am more mobile and able to sandwich and quilt this one.

Thanks for your comments.  I am finding it easier to get around everyday.  Today I had my DH take me outside so I could walk around the house.  MY walker didn't do too badly on the grass, but it wasn't soft so I could navigate all the way around. And it was so good to feel the sun on my face.   Then I came inside and went to bed for my regular afternoon nap.  If sleeping is a healing thing then my ankle should be well on its way to mending. Seems like I do a lot of that nowadays.

Beautiful Sherri....I love the colors! Looks like it was a lot of work. Hoping your ankle heals quickly.

Sherri - your En Provence is awesome.  You did a great job.  I  have only done one of her mysteries and it was fun but tedious.  Hope you are back to full mobility soon.  You did great getting it done with what you have had to deal with.
