Today is the 4th anniversary of starting this blog! What a ride it has been! :)
I have revelled in the inspiration, friendship and encouragement I have recieved. It has been wonderful to meet so many talented and friendly people, both online and in real life! I treasure the friendships I have made through blogging.
Thanks to many bloggers my quilting making skills have been stretched to the point that I feel like I can now tackle any project. (well, anything I have seen so far Lol)
Thank you all!
What have I been stitching over the last few days?
I have started hand quilting the Piecework Sampler. The thread is DMC 80. It is much finer than Perle 8 or 12, and a little thicker than the YLI quilting thread I have used before. My stitches lie somewhere between "big stitch quilting" and fine hand quilting.....leaning towards the"big stitch" size. :)
On the machine I have been making pinwheel border blocks for my 2nd medallion block.
Again they are all made with French General fabrics. I have about 8 more to make.
Lastly I have been working on another fleur de lis block as a swap block for the Chester Criswell Quilt. Here's a peek of my progress..
All of those projects were found on blogs!!!
Here is another one that has piqued my interest in the last week. It is an amazingly intricate quilt that would be a wonderful challenge. Since I am not one to back away from a challenge I am seriously thinking about joining in!! :) What about you??
Beautiful flowers from my DS for my birthday. Yes, he knows my favourites are yellow roses! :)
