Of course you noted that the post title is 3/4 of 2017. That is because 2017 is 3/4 through and I am making plans for the final quarter of the year. First up is this project: I have been “working” on it for 6 months (and that does not count how long it has been… Continue reading 1512.75
It is time to plan my next three months of quilt finishes. I am starting with two which did not quite get done: This quilt was a High School graduation gift in 2005. It has been well loved and was returned for repair. While I am not sure I can do it justice without… Continue reading Half Way There!
This cheerful table runner is done! I can’t imagine why I waited so long to finish it up. The hexies have been sewn for some time.

This time they offered quilting and binding fabric selection advice. There was word of… Continue reading And Another Finish
Hooray! I finished this quilt, started in 2010. It was designed by Carol Doak. It has had several false starts, including my ripping out most of the quilting and re-working the back. I am so pleased to have it done, and even more pleased at how well it turned out. Special thanks to… Continue reading A Finish
