This one is ready to visit the Long armer.  Probably drop it off tomorrow.   It's already spoken for.  And I finished pillow shams to match the  Box Kite quilt.  I posted below.

Finally finished my  Box Kite,  a B.HUnter pattern.  

I really love the colors in this one.  Pieced it several months ago and by the time I got it back from the long arm quilter I had broken by shoulder.  So I struggled to get the binding strips pieced and stitched onto the quilt.   Then spend two days hand stitching to the quilt.  I plan to make matching pillow shams and then put it into my granddaughters. Bin for them to have after I am gone.  Then I will finish the border on the quilt below.   I am planning on a border with pieced blocks in it and solid strips. Which I also began sewing while injured  it was all I could do at first ,  just sew together squares.  But it made the day go a bit quicker.  I hope I never have to endure this again.  I have had a brokern ankle   two broken wrists, and now the shoulder and the shoulder is by far the worst ..All of this on my right side.  Thankfully I am  left handed... LOL

pieced the last block and sewed the rows together the day before i broke my shoulder  I'm anxious to get an inner border on and then come up with a pieced outer border  i often leave borders off but would like this one just a little larger

That is very  pretty Sherri.

Athough this is not a quilt it is from my scrap stash. or rather my rogue block bin,  which is made up of scrappie blocks used in other projects. Thes blocks are stripped pieced for a Bonnie HUnter quilt and when I finished them realized I had not oriented the strips correctly. They should have been places diagonally on the paper square, So I have 60 of the blocks all in the wroing direction.  Decide to stitch a few together to make a zippered tote. turned our fairly well, iti is my mock up. Want to come yp with a design I like that I will make up for gifting...

I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

Diane, how nice to gift quilts to your family members when you’ve gotten together. Even better to use up scraps. You Tree everlasting quilt is very stunning. 

I recently participated in a mystery Quilt project with another group on this site. I decided to do mine with all scraps or leftover pieces of yardage. The piano keys border took a little longer than I had planned with me trying to ensure pieces were large enough (sometimes piecing them to make them large enough).  I was surprised to have this much red as I didn’t think I used that much red in quilts. I’m still trying to figure out when I used it all. The photo is before I pressed the quilt. It finished approx 67x80. Photo may be sideways.

Diane, thank you!!  Your quilt is gorgeous!!!  Perfect example of another way to do a sampler quilt.

Lynne I love the tree everlasting block! It's an all time favorite and have made it many times. Great way to use up those tiny scrap triangles! I did this one this winter
