Little Grace finished, a meeting and more

I finished quilting Little Grace late last week. The quilt is only 34cm by 42 cm (about 13 inches by 16.5 inches), but it is hand pieced and hand quilted. The pattern is by Jeanneke. Thank you Jeanneke for choosing me as the winner of this pattern and the printed fabric to make this doll quilt.

Recently I had the pleasure of spending a morning with Cathy of Cabbage Quilts. We visited a plant nursery and cafe and took a look around before we had coffee together.

We found some quilt inspiration....

...a wonderful pergola made from metal. There are some more photos on Cathy's blog.

I still catching up with my Barbara Brackman Civil War blocks. I finished two more this weekend.

 Block 23 Illinois Roads in the most recent block, and below is block 12 Louisiana.

I have also been cutting out triangles for the border of my Morrell Quilt.

I still have a few more background fabric triangles to cut out....then lots of stitching. :)

I hope for my next post I will have photos of some progress on my first Friends of Baltimore block.

Happy Sewing.
