A Little of This

Lucy Boston–Patchwork of the Crosses, quilts, Red & Green Traditional Applique

It was time to take the heavy quilt off the bed and put one of the light weight quilts on the bed – seeing as I finished this quilt in January and had not used it yet it got put on the bed yesterday as it is a light weight quilt!  All that work paid off – I love it!  Red and Green Traditional Baltimore Album


Sunday night’s work on the Patchwork of the Crosses – finished this end and rolled it down more.


After it was rolled down I continued to work on it and got this far and picked up here last night.


Monday afternoon it was hot outside – yes I hate to complain that it was hot LOL – but it was mid 80’s so I was inside off and on although I took the circles outside to the porch to do the prep work – gathering the circles.  Granny’s Got Style will have some lollipop balloon bouquets in the corners I think.  I can always take them off if I don’t like it after I get them laid out – I will bring it outside  later today or tomorrow to spread it out and see how I like it.  I am going to have curved corners on this quilt not your regular squared off edges.


The orange flower is now appliqued in place on the Sunny Days stripy quilt – my name for it.


So what have you all been up to?  I am linking to Freemotion by the River today and Ester’s Blog WOW Wednesday (in Australia it already is Wednesday)

    Wow! You really whipped “Sunny Days” out quickly. Love those big flowers.

    And of course, the red and green quilt looks smashing. As I knew it would.

    Have a great, warm (hot) day today.

    Your red and green quilt looks fabulous on your bed! Love it! Those flowers are going to be perfect on your Sunny Days quilt. I like the lollipop boquets for the corners of your Granny quilt … a nice touch of whimsy.

    Your Baltimore Album quilt is just stunning. How fun to be able to now put it on your bed. And I didn’t realize it got that warm in Arkansas this early in the year. You are matching temps in Arizona!

    “Sunny Days” is looking great!!! Your album quilt is gorgeous (as are all that you do!!). I think the “lollipop flowers” are adorable and can’t wait to see a trial placement. Enjoy your “hot” weather………we’re still on the cool side of the weather ‘front’ and are 20+ degrees below “normal”. I know ‘it’ is coming, though!!!!!!

    The big flowers just made the Sunny Days quilt pop! Great addition to it!
    How rewarding it must be to put the lovely quilt on your bed; makes you remember how much work went into it.

    Your quilt is beautiful and those circles are so lovely in the pineapples in the center block. The block in the bottom right corner looks like the block I just completed. Now I need to check out the link for the pattern.
