Finally a name for the Lemoyne Star pattern quilt. I wrote them all down and then last night I read them off to my husband and asked him to pick a name and he choose “Star Garden” thank you Rebecca from Quilting Everyday for the suggestion. Rebecca is from Alaska I have linked to her blog if you wish to visit her. I heard from so many of you I couldn’t keep up with sending you back a message – but thanks for all your suggestions!
I got the Tumbling Into Insanity quilt washed and dried – it ended up smaller than I thought it would be – all that quilting I guess shrunk it up a little and washing it always does too – and I did have to square it up some before I put the binding on it – 96 x 92 inches – it should fit the camper bed great too and I think it will come along with us on the next trip. I started piecing it a year ago and finished! I am linking to Prairie Sewn Studios today.
the crinkly back – and yes I love those dots too – in fact I love the backing so much that I can see this quilt being reversed now and then and enjoy looking at those large polka dots. This makes the 7th finished quilt this year! (of course one was finished just a week into the year so it was last years work really), at the end of the year I will do post of finishes.
Winter Wonderland is growing by leaps and bounds – the blocks are so easy to make. I have caught up with everything that is cut so I need to cut more and get stitching. If I figured right I need 306 blocks and I have 52 done.
Most every summer I have several ferns hanging on the porch and almost every year I have tree frogs make them a home – if you look closely you can see him in the saucer area where there is water.
Here is a close up, a little blurry. I enjoyed drinking my tea on the porch yesterday morning and could hear him croaking so much I had to go back in to get the camera and take his photo.
