Not Much To Show

Diamonds Are Forever, William Morris in Applique-Floral Fantasy

I did get some work done yesterday in between dodging rain – which continues today – but I don’t have much to show.  I exercised and ran to the grocery store – at home I prepped the circles by gathering the threads, pulling tight and pressing – they are ready to stitch – but I didn’t stitch any – but I have 7 blocks ready so I think that counts.

The binding on Floral Fantasy is finished – now to wash and make a hanging sleeve.  I will post a full photo after I get it ready.


Well I work on the border of Diamonds are Forever I’m afraid it is going to basically look the same – when you are quilting on white going all the way across a long border not much changes except how many inches you complete LOL.  I am linking to Quilt Story:Fabric Tuesday today and Esther’s blog.


I hope sometime this week to get back to work on some of the projects on the wall, I have really neglected some of them for the past month or so haven’t I.  I have a feeling we are all like that especially if we start too many at one time.

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

    There just aren’t enough hours in the day to be able to devote time to all our quilting projects, so some sit and wait their turn. 😉 Speaking of waiting its turn, I think I might work on my Martha Washington’s Flower Garden today … other than a few hexies basted, I haven’t touched that since we got back from Hilton Head at the end of September.

    Karen, I know you have been hand quilting for many many years but how long did it take you to get the feel for it? I am handquilting something right now to “relearn” and it is frustrating me. I don’t think my stitches look great and I can’t get the flow going. I know it is an issue of practice. I just need to convince myself it is worth it. Thank you for answering my questions.

    What do you use to mark the quilting lines on your quilts?

    Ooooh, I love the quilting you’re doing on the border — it’s just beautiful. And you sure made quick work of that binding!!!

    Ohhhh Karen those diamonds in the border look fabulous with the celtic rings “Oh my Oh me” as they used to say. Not sure where I have been but I missed seeing you take Floral Fantasy off the loom. I’m looking forward to seeing it hanging . Love love the way you quilted this quilt. Hugs Glenda

    Cannot wait to see Floral Fantasy all washed and ready to hang….I know I have said this before, but the double line quilting is stunning….such a simple design, but what an impact….adds so much to the quilt without taking away from your beautiful appliqué work! I will definitely use double line quilting on a quilt in the future….
    And I see your shawl under the edge of Floral Fantasy!

    You might not think that you have much to show – we all have weeks like that – but you are still making good progress on your projects! I particularly like the hexie quilting that you are doing!
