The last few weeks have been filled with many things, including a horrible cold virus that really zapped me. Lots of other things going on. I am almost quilting a large quilt, but just didn't get a chance to finish! My daughter and grandkids are here visiting and that takes priority. I am eeking out a few minutes with the kids playing here in the sewing room.
My biggest finish was getting the borders on my Baltimore Spring quilt. I still haven't gotten to the stitching stage, I hope to soon. I do have some other quilting commitments coming up, so we shall see!
When I took the quilts to school for 100 day in my previous post, our volunteer music teacher was there. This is a small wallhanging from hand dyed fabrics and the leaves are raw edge. It's not my favorite and she asked if I would donate it to a benefit auction for a neighbor's 4 year old great granddaughter. I was happy to. The little girl was born with a rare medical condition and they are seeing treatment in Boston. I included a closeup of the quilting. This is about 24 X 30.
Instagram is having a quiltfest for the month of March, but again, way too many commitments to participate fully. I was able to post a pic on miniature quilts day though! I wish I had laid a ruler for comparison! It was about 24 X 27 or so, I can't remember now! I made these a few years ago. I used to make a lot of mini quilts! The top two are traditionally pieces and the bottom 2 are paper pieces and they are small!
I got out my Farmer's Wife blocks to see how many I had. I laid a piece of black fabric on the floor and I think that is what I will use on my scrappy batik quilt when I get all the rest of the blocks made some year! Actually I have been challenged to finish it this year. I started this many years ago.
More recently I started the 1930's Farmers Wife. Still not sure why as I have way too many sampler quilts and they aren't my favorite! They are brighter and I will be using white. I have a lot more to make!
Hopefully I will be able to get back on track with quilting and blogging. I will post pics of my grandkids in another post!
