a little quilting

A little more quilting last week:
Sharon is working on "Our Flower Garden" -a pot holder quilt
at the Good Wives Co., and she asked me to quilt her blocks.
She's a new quilter, but you sure can't tell!
Sharon also made this:
Pink Patches Doll Quilt,
from the book "Civil War Sewing Circle".

I've been working on my POTC - Lucy Boston Blocks.
And, I'm pleased to say,
I'm up to date and still doing a block a week - YAY!
I'm not up to date on my Sally Post blocks though :(
but, that's OK -
no pressure at all from anyone other than myself.
Can't seem to get my act together at all!
I'd hoped to do three blocks a month.
They don't really take too long to make, I just need to get some blocks prepped so I can take them with me so I can do some needle-turn applique during sitting-time.
You know how it is when the sun is shining and the weeds are calling, and it's almost pool weather, and the grand kids have games I can go watch, and, and, and!!! Isn't life wonderful?  It's grand having too many things to do, isn't it?

Hope your May is going well -
Happy Stitching!


  1. Sally Post blocks will come in time. I am anxious to see the finished product. Much so because of the potholder method you are using.

  2. It is great that there are so many things to choose from. I think summer is a fun time to have take along projects and get out and enjoy. Those grandkids will love looking up and seeing you there. It always seems to me that the winters hang on for so long that there is lots of time then to sit at the machine.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
