Postage Stamp Quilt

quilts

Well the half way mark on the last side border of the Postage Stamp Quilt was completed Saturday night and a little more started on Sunday evening.    This part done and the excess all cut off to make it a little lighter to work on.

Now this half needs to be finished and it will be done!

Hard to get a photo of the quilting from the backside I will try again when finished.  Linking up to Em’s Scrap Bag and  Love, Laugh, Quilt.

This is the area now in the hoop – I start in the middle and work my way out.

I’m almost done planting the garden, still some to go.  I’m extremely slow at it at times.  Mainly the only thing left to do now is plant some flowers along the borders here and there and get some perennials for the flower bed that is close to the house.  Once it starts to grow a bit I will get some photos, but right now the plants are small and really need to fill in to make it look good!  I’m off to Little Rock today for my quarterly check up (routine) with my rheumatologist and get my yearly Reclast IV treatment done for Osteoporosis – I will be gone half the day and by time I get done with the appointments I will see if I feel like doing any running around while in the city – sometimes I go shopping, it just depends on if I feel like it – really don’t need anything so it will just if I want to.  Normally I end up at Barnes and Nobel and get coffee and a scone and look at quilting magazines and see if there is a new book I have to have – and then beat the rush hour and leave the city by 2 or 3 and go home – I’m not much of a shopper.    We will see if I feel like any sewing when I get home.

    The hand quilting is beautiful… beautiful. Marking must take a lot of time. A lot
    of prep stuff.. I know it is necessary, but getting to the needle work itself is the soothing part. Hopefully the weather is dry for your trip…. and a Barnes & Noble stop is a pleasant reward after a med appointment.

    Yay you’re almost done! Beautiful quilting, just right for this lovely quilt. I had a doctor appointment this morning too. It was just a every three months check up on my calcium level. Everything is good, so no “cutting of the throat” as my doctor said, lol! Hope you have a safe trip and enjoy yourself afterwards.

    Hi, Karen! Wow! You are really working hard and quickly on your postage stamp quilt. I think a bit of browsing at your local quilt shop might be fun and maybe purchasing a bit of fabric as a reward! There must be something you just need or want.
