coming along

My latest quilt is coming along nicely....

These are 10" blocks but I am planning lots more.

Here's something I found while playing on the internet the other day:

It doesn't have to be louder, brighter or more didactic...
but it can be pushed.
It can be taken further.
It can be better, stronger,
even more deceptively simple.
But it needs to go to the next level.

all in together

I have been planning to do a quilt like this for some time.

I have started with these four 10" Court House blocks

then nine...

 and lots of scraps.
What do you think?
Too scrappy?

Sunday night already

This week I have:
finished a quilt top
and started a new one
and drove more than 1500 kilometres, 
on my own,
to go to a funeral.

You know what I like about hand sewing?
It is portable,

and small.

always difficult

It's always difficult to give a quilt away.
It's like sending one of your children away.

But then, isn't it nice when you can give something you love to someone you love?

And I put a lot of love into my quilts...

Happy Birthday M...
