I don’t know if any of you remember the quilt I called “Wagon’s West” I started it last year when we were traveling in the motorhome – the squares were done with Inklingo and hand pieced – well some of them were hand pieced some by machine when we got home. It has sat it aside for awhile now as I had grown tired of. I love the quilt but got tired of making it. Right now it is couch size – 56 x 70 and I think that is the size it is staying! Yes I well quilt it and call it done. I will do machine quilting on this one and continue to practice that art LOL I will be machine quilting for a month at least most likely but I want to take my time with it and do a good job on it. I have some of the fabric from the layer cake still in the project box and it is possible I will stitch a lot of pieces together for a multi-color binding – a lot of seams yes but they do not have to be on a bias – I can take tiny stitches and press seams open so it will lay flat better. I have too many quilts in project boxes and really want to get some of them done this summer! They do not all have to be big bed size quilts although I do like them that size.
I rolled Winter Wonderland down and this is it – the end is now in sight. I thought I had seven more rows to quilt but it is 5 rows – each row has been taking about 4-6 days to complete.
For Slow Sunday Stitching I will be working on my hexies and/or the wool applique for the Postage Stamp quilt that I showed the other day.
An idea on how to use your over abundance of fresh sweet mints and other mints this summer. Chocolate Mint cookies! I was going to post a photo of these cookies but they are on another’s persons blog – I asked permission but have not heard back from her so if you are interested in the recipe go to her blog to check it out using the link above. I know I well have way too much mint for tea only so thought I might try this recipe out soon.
