Apple Blossom Time is now a flimsy!


Unfortunately, it is too big for my design wall and also a tad big for the hallway.  :)

This is about the best picture of it...

I ordered a new panto for this quilt ~ Apple Blossom by Lorien Quilting ~ but it hasn't arrived yet.

I will put the Apple Blossom Time aside and start working on the coaches' quilts.  :)

Design Wall Monday 2.17.2014

I'm starting a new quilt.  This one is promised to my SIL, Carol.  She has been waiting patiently for me to make it.  :)

It's Elsie Campbell's Apple Blossom Time quilt found in her book, Fun with Nine Patches and Snowballs.

Here is one completed apple blossom.  I think my blossoms are going to be wonky!  That will only add to the charm!

Whoop! Whoop! 2.07.2014

I did it!

I quilted and bound my Valentine place mats!

Inspiration found here.

All the fabric was from the stash.  :)

I found a little bit of St. Patrick's Day to cobble together backing.  My attempt at making the place mats reversible.

I'm thinking that the St. Patrick's side will need a shamrock or *something* appliqued to perk them up a bit!

I had the biggest chunk of the Irish Blessing.

Quilts of Valor Sew Day

Today is a Quilts of Valor Sew Day.  While I didn't register online ~ I decided to sew along on my own.

I found a few blocks made from the Mock Trip Around the World pattern in red-cream-blue plus matching fabric (!!!) to create another top.

Last night, I prepped by sewing together the segments for the blocks.

For this quilt, I am pairing it with a pillow panel...
