Wagon’s West (dresden plates)

The last couple days I have not done a lot of sewing I have been in a reading mood again.  I do work on Wagon’s West almost every evening though and it is moving along.  Soon I will need to get the big piece of purple fossil fern out to sew my backing for the next quilt on the frame!!  When I get to the end of this stretch I will roll it down one more time and I think I will reach it all ok.


Picking up in this area last night.


Maybe today I will get back to work cutting out bricks for the second half of the amount needed for the bricks quilt – which I will need to come up a name for soon.  Linking to Sew Fresh Quilts today and My Quilt Infatuation.

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

    I just swoon over pics of Wagon’s West… Your progress on this has been steady and sure … fun to start thinking about the next one to urge this one off the frame too!!!
    Did you name the bricks baby quilt you use as a table topper? Just thinking this could be a similar name as it is a grown up version of that one 🙂 Otherwise maybe a name will emerge as you piece the quilt into a center or will it be without borders and be only bricks? I love the simplicity of the piecing of this quilt and the fun effect in the end with all the scrappy colors coming together. Stay cool today Karen!

    I love watching your quilting progress. I think it’s so inspirational for those quilters who want to hand quilt.

    I just love watching your progress on Wagons West. I’ve been on a reading streak myself and am not sure that I have enough time to go fabric shopping.

    I love watching your quilting progress – it’s such an inspiration. I wish you’d slow down though – I’m really going to miss my favorite quilt!!!

    Sometimes slow and steady is the way to go with things. I also recently got into a reading bug…we had one weekend where it was cool and rainy…I think I finished 3 books that weekend! It seems like either the extreme heat or extreme cold makes me want to stay inside and read.

    Hand quilting… so beautiful… and your frame looks a bit like theone Gwen Marston uses and shows in some of her writing… The hand quilting adds a complexity and dimension to the quilt that nothing else does…. slow work… but so is the formation of a diamond.
