Another Finish

Instead of working on the Blockhead Baby Quilt, I quilted and bound the Wavelet.

112413   (768x1024)This was the first quilt top that I completed this year, so it seems fitting that it is a completed quilt at the end of the year.

I just picked up a quilt from a local long arm quilter, so the next project is to get it bound.

I wish everyone safe travels and a Happy Thanksgiving.

Home again

I am back home after my 3rd Annual Florida Vacation / Emerson’s Birthday Trip.  It is always nice to get out of the cold, enjoy some warmth and celebrate a birthday.  This year the birthday celebration lasted a full week as we visited several of the theme parks in the area.  Everyone had a great time at Kennedy Space Center,

Universal Studios,

012913C    (1024x768)

and Legoland.

The week ended with a birthday cake and

012913E   (1016x1024) a birthday girl.

The only thing missing was my sewing machine.  But now that I am home again, there has been some time spent in the sewing room.  Easy Street has grown by two setting triangles and one corner triangle

012913    (1024x932)and the Wavelet is officially a quilt top.

012913A   (806x1024)After the center columns were put together, I went shopping in my stash for a border fabric.  The one that demanded to join the party is a Kaffe Fassett print.  Even though there are colors in the border fabric that are not repeated in the center, the look and feel of this quilt is what I wanted.  Isn’t it great when a plan comes together?

Recently I received some wonderful comments on my blog and want to say “Thank you” to each and every one of you.  I hope that you find some small inspiration here because I find great amount of inspiration from your blogs.

Playtime

I finished the four purple/grey blocks and now it time to play.  What do you think of this arrangement?

011513  (1024x1009)Or this one?

011513A (1000x1024)Here is another one – isn’t this fun?

011513B  (1004x1024)This is really a great way to see some of the possibilities.  I haven’t made a final decision, but right now this is the one I am seriously considering.

011513C   (1007x1024)I am going to let them stay on the design wall for a couple of days to simmer.

The Wavelet is coming together.  I have all the strips sewn and a couple of the rows.

011513D  (866x1024)

I have all three French Braid books by Jane Hardy Miller, but the two quilts I have made are both from the third book – French Braid Transformation.  This is the other quilt which I called Oriental Maze and Jane calls Amazing Maze.

There has been no further progress down Easy Street, but I did finish the doll quilt.

011513E  (1024x768)Since this is a birthday present, a final photo will have to wait until the end of the month.
