Working on my second pieced border now. this is really shaping up to be very pretty! Just one more plain 2 inch border and finishing up a few more blocks for the left side and the quilt top will be done. Going to Mary Jo's Saturday to find a backing fabric and then I will be ready to quilt it next week. This one is for Tanya and Adam.
Relay for Life bag that I made to honor my Sister Ann Stone a 6 year survivor of Breast Cancer this past weekend!!
Here is the quilt top ready for assembly. I really like how it came out. More pictures when done!!
I am so excited to be only 10 days away from my annual trip to Vermont!
Once a year I go to Vermont, usually in April and together with my sister, Ann,
we do a Mud Mystery Quilt at Middlebury Sew and Vac quilt shop.
Last years mystery is the beautiful red and tan quilt on my last post!! I will
post a picture of it finished and on a bed soon. This weekend I was in a panic
to find the perfect fabric for this years mystery, as I have some pre-cutting
and sewing to do before the class. Finding the right fabric was a challenge, as
the best choices we were told would be baticks. I love baticks and thought
it would be a simple task. It did not play out quite that way, but at last it is done.
Here are my fabric choices. I can't wait to get the mystery solved and see how
beautiful the quilt will be. Unfortunately the color is not as vivid as the actual
fabric is where the lightest color is actually a light green and blue not as it appears
to be a neutral color. Standby for pictures after the mystery class and I return
from the cold, cold New England wintery weather. I have been promised NO SNOW!!
We will see if that pr0mise stands up or not.
