A Little Closer

I am a little closer to finishing my "Wooly Critter Sampler" quilt. I still have one block to finish and the border applique to prepare and sew down. But thought I would share some pictures of my progress so far...

With small light blue border.








I have applique group tomorrow, perhaps I will have more to show you then. Martha

Seeing Green

On St. Patrick's day I went to " Colorz For Quilts "  quilt shop to see the "Wicked " book signing by Cherrywood. They also had some of the designers of the small wicked quilts there too, to autograph pics of their quilts. There were plenty of refreshments there also.








Some Wicked jewelery, both a necklace and earrings!




Some of the quilts are hanging, the rest are on tour in the U.S.



This is Cherrywood owner Karla Overland speaking with Carol Wilson one of the designers in the book. Hers is the last one in the book.   Hope you got there to get your book
and get it autographed!

I have prepped my last block of Wooly Critter Sampler !


Now I just need to stitch it down!




As you can see I have gotten a little more accomplished on my "Cloud Nine" small quilt by Kim Diehl.  I will save a little more news for later, Martha.

Guild Sew- In

Yesterday our guild had a sew-in at the local church where we hold our meetings.  We had a variety of soups and breads and cookie bars  to help us get thru the day! None of us were left wanting for anything. I took a few pics that I will gladly share....

Life can be Hectic

We all have periods where we are bored and life seems to be either on pause  or definetly on slow  motion. Right now mine seems to be on fast forward and with some glitches. I make a docter's appt. a month in advance and then two days before the doc cancels.  I make an appt. for taxes and they cancel me too!  In other words I wish to move along at  a faster pace but no one seems to be accomodating. Such is life.....

I have finished another Kim Diehl pattern "Village Square". I have a couple of picsfor you....





                                          Bound and quilted.

I finished my turtle block of "Wooly Critter Sampler".




I have prepared two more blocks for stitching at night also.






I also recently got back my flannel quilt from the quilter's (Laura Shogren) quilted this one.  


only 1/3 of the quilt
I have the binding sewn on the front and will start hand sewing to the back ,  tonight while watching" The Blacklist".  I will get a better picture of it when finished with binding . Hopefully the weather will be better and I can take an outdoor picture.   Chat later, Martha. I am connecting up with  Fiber of all Sorts .

Natural Progression

I am progressing nicely with the hand applique  on my "Village square" by Kim Diehl. Here are pics before things were sewn done and just placed....









In  this last pic I have just begun to place berries.  I have 12 more berries to make and one whole side to sew done. But I am getting there. Plus there is one more round of borders. This quilt ends up to only be about 37" square when finished. So it is not that large. I will keep you up to date when I chat with you again!  I will be linking up to Kathy's Quilts .

Village Square

I have been working on my churn dash blocks for my Kim Diehl's "Village Square" and have a finished center!






This is the small quilt with no applique, but I have started the applique on two of the sides. As you can see here....




I will be working on this for a while, I will let you see its progression over the next few days.  I will be linking up with a Scraps Monday:Tuesday Tip Edition  at a Quilting Life.
