POTC & Joseph’s Coat

animals, Inklingo, Joseph’s Coat, Lucy Boston–Patchwork of the Crosses, quilts

Well I have gotten another block done – so many left to do if I make this one queen size Smile

The latest POTC block.


All 10 so far:


Joseph’s Coat right before I gave it another crank down on Friday night –


Looking down the row at what needs to be done next.  I got very little done yesterday– I was mainly reading a book and working on the green vine part of the applique on the Red and Green quilt.  Hopefully done with that done today and then I can get started cutting out flowers and gluing in place.


I have been looking at fabric on the shelves and starting to put together bundles of what I want to use in “Common Bride – I’m not sure when I will begin this quilt – probably not until next year but it is nice to start going through the fabric to see what I have available.  You can’t see real well on this photo but I really like the color scheme already there – lots of pink/browns – some greens and blue thrown in as well.  The background is numerous shades of beige to light brown – I am thinking more cream for the background and go a little lighter for that part of it.


Mike found this lizard  yesterday outside – he trapped it and brought it in for me to look at – unusual in that we never see this kind around the house outside – a spotted salamander.   Released back outside after I got a photo.


For those that have asked me about where to purchase turkey lacers/skewers to make the stilettos I got them at this link.  They are a little more than the $5.00 I thought they were – I hadn’t remembered the correct price – you can get a package of 8 for $7.04 plus shipping unless you can find them at your local grocery store or a Wal-Mart type of store.

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

    POTC is coming along so nice.

    Common Bride looks like a fabulous quilt. You don’t do anything simple do you?

    Love watching your progress. Thanks for sharing.

    I love your Joseph’s coat and pots… I am in awe by you handwork!

    Thanks for the info on the turkey lacers, every year I make gifts for mt fellow bee members for Christmas and since there are 30 of them, I like to keep the cost down.

    In Canada, I found turkey lacers at Walmart. About $1-2 for 12, I think.
    I found the ECCO brand were thinner than the other brand, I forget what kind.
    These are so easy to make, I have about 20 made so far and have given away 2!
    I also thought a local Dollar store would have them too, but only got to look at a few of these stores, is probably out of season, so didn’t find any.
    Take care, Leslie

    Oh my, Common Bride will be beautiful.

    Just curious–What are you using in between your POTC blocks?

    Still here enjoying watching progress on Joseph’s Coat. Which row of how many are you on now?

    The POTC seems to be really coming together very quickly. I really like your colorway.
