Joseph’s Coat

Joseph’s Coat, quilts

Last night I managed to finish off on the row I was quilting for the last week on Joseph’s Coat – I have been moving slowly all of a sudden on this quilt.  I think I had been moving quickly for 6 weeks on it and then it kind of just started to taper off on it.  I need to make sure I put in some time almost every day so I can get it finished before fall like my original plan was.  This is the area I finished last night.


I gave it a couple cranks down and the next row is ready to quilt – starting with the beige/browns


then it will be the darker browns to red – yes I need to pull this one a little tighter before I start to quilt here – I see one of my brown melons is a bit wrinkly – I will tighten that before I get to that area.  This quilt is one that I am not bothering to tighten up too much as the melons on the end get a little out of sorts if I do too much – it will all be wrinkly when I get done washing and drying it any how so I am not too worried about it.


moving on to the pink/purples


then the purple/blues


and last back to the blue/greens


Maybe I can get this row quilted this week?  I am working on the Red and Green Applique as well, maybe the second border on that quilt will be done this week as well?  We will see.

I got my hair cut yesterday – short again – I had been growing it out a bit but I decided it didn’t look healthy – bad hair cut, hair easily breaks, ect – it is better short – of course the bangs were cut too short – can never get away from that can we?

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    Wow it is looking soooo good. What a work of love.

    I am so curious to know what that sewing tray is. Is it attached to your light? And where did you get that?

    This is a beautiful quilt! I machine quilt but have the utmost respect for hand quilters and love the look it produces when finished. Hope you are staying cool and enjoy your week stitching.

    Yes, I also like watching the progress on your quilting although it really makes me feel like a “slacker”. Oh well, we can’t all work the same way, can we?

    I know what you mean about bangs. Mine are driving me crazy. If I wear a hat on our walks, I end up with a ridge on them and then the ends curl up! Ugh! Looks totally dumb. If I don’t wear a hat, the sun takes it’s toll on me. Think I need to go shorter on the rest of the head also as the heat just makes my longer hair go limp …. not to mention that it makes my head and neck even hotter. Well, too much info here. Sorry that I got off the quilting track! lol

    It is always a good two weeeks after I get my hair cut to be able to get mine to style correctly and for the bangs to grow back out. lol

    The shading on the quilt is so beautiful. It is slow going on my star quilt also. I blame it on the hearts with the loops in it. Quilting curved lines really slow me down.

    Geez, we have to have relief from this heat soon.
