English paper piecing

I'm working in a version of the stonefields quilt. I've been working dillegently on the hexies.

My Gracie is supervising the progress. I'm in love with the softness of this quilt.

down in the Garden Block 5

I just finished this block today. If I had to estimate the hours I worked on it, I would say 40-50. I started it may 27th. And I vowed I wouldn't do any other handwork till it was finished. This was my first try at working on only one thing. It was tough but so glad I accomplished what I set out to do. I have a few other small quilt blocks to get back to before I start block 6.

Down in the Garden. Block 4

It was an amazing January weekend here in Missouri. Sunny and almost 70. We spent some time outside.


Rocket even was able to take a swim.

And then I was able to do some sewing. I finished block 4 of Down in the Garden by Leanne Beasley. This is such a lovely quilt and sew fun to do. It is very labor intensive and takes lots of hours but will be an heirloom. At least I hope so.

First quilt

It was a really cold January weekend. But mellisa came to visit and we finished her first quilt. She bought Minnie fabric for her first sewing. Brave girl. She used a lot of pins and sewed it up perfectly. Then she made a couple burp rags to go with this gift.


I was working on block 7 of "At Home in the Garden". I am totally enjoying this quilt.

Today I have off for MLK Day, I'm felting some wool and hoping to work on the s'mores quilt a bit
