Friday Night Sew-In

Last FNSI for 2013 thanks Wendy for hosting another great virtual sew-in with all the other ladies. It was fun spending the evening preparing another block for Floral Bouquet . I managed to trace the design onto the background fabric then cut out the shapes ready to use on my fabric for the needle turn applique. I also cut the stems and placed them ready for stitching. Thank you all for your lovely company,words of encouragement,and friendship..........


This will also be my last blog till after Christmas, so I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year from our house to yours........
Happy stitching.......

QMC 2013

I finished hand piecing my QMC quilt.

It is now basted and ready for me to start hand quilting. This will be my second hand quilting project. It is much larger than my vases project so I am hoping it goes as smoothly. 

Ready for hand quilting. You can't really see my basting stitches. 

Christmas Through The Year

I finished my Christmas wreath using the plastic tabs that we started at our Christmas workshop. Thanks Anthea for hosting. See others Here

QMC 2013

This is my last block finished.  I have enjoyed every minute I spent on this quilt. I was planning to piece it to the rest of the quilt last night but got caught up with another project.  I hope I will be able to look for border fabric soon.
