  • Delectable Mountains Top

    The quilt top is completed! Last week I worked on piecing parts of the quilt back. This week I spent almost all my sewing room time starching and ironing the backing fabrics. For me this is absolutel the most boring part of making a quilt. Thank goodness for recorded books! It is hard for me to iron "mindfully" for days on end. I hope to get

  • Delectable Decisions

    I worked on the concentric block arrangement of delectable mountains this week. It has morphed from two twins into one queen. This happened because I noticed serious damage on the quilt that is currently on our bed. It has seen consistent cold weather use for almost 15 years. I quilted it by hand. Anyway, now I'm trying to decide whether to put

  • Delectable Discovery

    The extreme cold had me searching my UFO's again. Stir Crazy! I found a box of Delectable Mountain quilt blocks (started in a Star Quilt Guild of Roanike, VA class taught by Kay Anderson in 1993). I remember at that time 1950"s retro fabric was popular. These blocks are in floral prints of pink and black. If I ever get them into a top, I'll

    This is the front of a quilt my grandchildren and I made for a new family member. My granddaughter drew the faces on the bunnies and embroidered three of them. My grandson pieced the borders.

  • First Completed UFO in 2014

    Each year I have the same impulse to complete unfinished projects. Earlier this month I dug through boxes and chose three UFO to work on this year. The first one, finished on 1/142-014, is a scrappy log cabin baby quilt. I started it in 2001. I used the sew and filp technique to create the blocks and quilt them at the same time. I really enjoyed doing
