First I wanted to share this photo of my daughter and granddaughter. They are in Upper Michigan right now on vacation and they had a neat photo to share with me - They were able to touch and feed a bear – it is 7 months old and is a rescue bear – I’m not sure what the details are with it but it was saved as a baby, I love Ciera’s expression she is always excited to be with the animals.
Ciera and Utah – my wonderful grandchildren – getting ready to get on a glass bottom boat for a little cruise in Lake Superior.
Now on to quilts! I know what is she talking about – a new quilt! – well I am in the process of three applique quilts – Love Entwined, — Floral Fantasy – which I haven’t worked on for awhile but I will get back to and Uncommon, Common Bride – just needs an applique border and it will be done – again haven’t touched it in awhile.
One hexie quilt in progress – two quilts in the process of hand quilting – so a new quilt – really – well I feel like just plain piecing an easy quilt. A big block quilt – goes fast and use up some of this fabric. I won a jelly roll last year sometime — it is kind of drab by itself and had me confused as to how to use it. The colors were not calling to me. I got out the Large Block Quilt book that I had mentioned a week or so ago and got to looking at it some more.
These are the jelly roll strips all lined up – not very flashy or colorful are they!
The pattern – finish block sizes are 18 x 18, finished quilt size is about 90 x 90 inches.
All the pieces cut and put in the box to work on when I feel like it – in between everything else!!
Who says we can only work on a couple things at once LOL. I think I will start on this one next week sometime but not sure when – it will be ready for me when I am ready for it. I chose the cream color background because I needed 5 yards and it was on the shelf waiting to be used. The Jelly Roll is called “Orchard House circa 1868” by Jeanne Horton from Windham Fabrics.
