The summer before it was Over the River - a stunning quilt by Crab Apple Hill:
You can purchase the pattern using this link: Over the River & through the Woods Quilt .
Well yesterday I was home for the whole day with no other commitments (can't remember the last time that happened) - the boys were busy outside with their skateboards and skooters so I tackled a whole lot of housework, baking and then still had time to organize and plan my summer projects. I have so many UFOs right now that I have decided to spend the summer finishing things rather than starting something new.
First up will be the Celebration Quilt. This little quilt is so beautiful it combines stitchery with the Celebration Fabrics designed by Brenda Riddle for Lecien. Sandy has all the kits made up and ready to go...we just need a picture of the finished quilt and finishing the quilt is my responsibility...oh dear. As you can see I have two of the lovely basket blocks stitched and third one hooped and just barely started. This is going to be my first project to finish!
Here's a close-up of the first little block...
Here's the second...
Hopefully I will have the third one ready to show you in the next week!
I have also stalled on my vegan quilt ... this one is a Japanese Hexagon quilt that is a quilt-as-you-go project. As you can see I have finished about 40 hexagons but need to do a lot more! I did prepare another couple of dozen so I am ready to pick it up and get going again! I'd really like to finish this one over the summer. Is anyone interested in an online tutorial for the block?
I'll keep posting my UFO projects through the summer...would anyone else like to join in? If you send pictures we'll post your progress too! Or you can just post your progress through comments if you prefer.
On the baking front I just made up some muffins ... but I thought they looked so pretty in my new cupcake holder that I would share it too!
