Lovely quilts, Annette! I especially love Izzy’s Choice. 

Best wishes for your move, QD. I’m sure the church group was grateful for your stash. Joining my church’s sewing group is on my list for when I retire (3 more years).

Thanks, ladies, for your kind comments.  I was excited to share them with you.

QD, wasn't that wonderful that your church group wanted your bits and bobs!  I think we all struggle with what to do with our extras.  Too much affluence, I think.  Good luck with your move...exciting times.  We moved a fair bit in the first half of our marriage and although I missed our friends, I lived that I had to get rid of our extras.  Now we're in our 30th year here, our home is overstuffed.  Time to rotoroot it...or move.   

PQ, that blue was calling to me though I don't think I've ever made a blue quilt. Our home is decorated in yellow and red but #1 son's home has a lot of blue in it, so that quilt will go to them.  I think I need to make another quilt with that blue as I finally found a blue I like.  Oh!  I have made a couple with navy.

I agree about the fabric. I'm sure everything will go fine with the move, I'll let you know in October! LOL

Lovely quilts Annette.

QD, that is fabulous news about the church group taking your fabric.  I hope the move goes well.

Annette, you have been busy. All three of your quilts are wonderful. I do admit thought that I am partial to Bachelor Buttons as I am partial to blue, as well as to the flower of that name.

I'm glad I finally got notifications of postings to the group. I was wondering how everyone was doing.

Annette, I love your quilt - it sounds like quilt-as-you-go with a twist. I'll have to try it on my next quilt that will probably be one for my grandson. Probably a combination of machine embroidery & applique.

Lynne, your quilt will be beautiful when you finish it. I really like applique combined with piecing.

We're in the process of moving to a house that's about the same square footage, but it's an old one so there are several small rooms where we now have fewer larger rooms. We had a yard sale to get rid of much of it, but I had a lot of fabric & patterns still there. One of the ladies who was at the sale belongs to a quilt group at a local church. So I contacted the lady in charge and am happy to report that they took all the fabric for their projects/fundraisers & dishes, clothing, etc for their rummage sale. Whew! I had no idea what to do with the destash fabrics but I knew I wasn't going to throw it away!

After we move & get through the holiday craft shows, I plan to work on a couple of projects I've been putting to the side & hope I will keep getting notifications of postings here.

Annette, your three latest finishes are wonderful!  I'm just in awe of applique quilts - something I have very little experience with.  They look so intricate.  I love the tonal blues in Bachelor Buttons.  Nicely done, all.

It's been a while since I last posted.  A busy summer, though lacking in both sunshine and heat where we live.  That, however, leaves me free to quilt, so I finished up Izzy's Choice, Home Sweet Home and Bachelor Buttons, all of which you can see on My Page with details.  Here it is, 4:20 pm, and the sun has finally come out from behind those grey skies.  About 1/2 hr after our afternoon walk! Mi should be back in the Studio quilting, but I am not at all happy with what's going on down there and need some time to ponder.  As I do, I'm doing the embroidery on The Raven, after which I shall machine quilt it in order for it to be finished in time for Halloween.

Lynne. Your quilt top is coming along nicely.  Those leaves are a perfect accompaniment to the stars.

lovely border to set off those fun stars.  Gonna be very special when finished.  

Comment by Lynne on July 23, 2019 at 4:18pm

Thanks everyone!!!!

handstitcher, I always set my fabrics aside when I make a quilt.  Never placing it in my stash till the quilt is finished.   Yes, I have a lot of boxes, bags with fabric, because the top is not quilted!!!  LOL
