Common Bride


I really didn’t get anything done today but last night a little progress was made on another corner of the Common Bride – I have been working on this corner off and on for several days.  The center flower is done and that stem, left side flower bed is done except for part of the green and part of the stem needs to be stitched, the leaves are done on that side – maybe I will finish this corner tomorrow? we will see


I have not been quilting on X Marks the Spot at all lately – I don’t think I have touched it in a week – maybe next week?

Have you seen the give away on the Jolly Jabber for a ebook called Skip the Borders?

    Wow beautiful applique, I cam over to see your red and green quilt. Love it, so you haven’t quilted it yet either. Are you using batiks for you applique? I wonder if you like using batiks better than regular quilting fabric?
    What a great book, I am always drawn to antique quilts that often do not have borders. Glad to see someone promoting borderless quilts.

    I came over to see your traditional red and green quilt. Love it, I see you haven’t quilted it yet either. I was wondering if like using batiks better than regular cotton quilting fabric to applique?

    I recently bought this pattern and am so excited to see that you’ve started it! Since I have no time to start it now, I can play along with you and just dream, dream, dream! I don’t know what attracted me more…the applique or the fancy pieced blocks. I really like the colors you’ve chosen! And your x marks the spot quilt looks like a really enjoyable project. Sometimes I think quilting is my favorite thing to do…so relaxing and really makes the design come alive. It always gives a chance to really see every fabric up close and personal.

    In stitches, Teresa :o)
