Quilting. There was a time when quilting was the main topic here at A Simple Girl. I don't know about you, but I've missed it. Things are beginning to feel settled enough that more quilting time is being found in each day.
The applique on this piece is done. Now to turn it into a finished project. I'm thinking of a pillow. More diamonds are being added to the stack.
And I have been working on signature blocks for a swap with my California quilting buddies.
The blocks are assembled. Now to stitch my name on each of them and get them in the mail. Does anyone out there know what my deadline is?
Then there was a finish! I joined in Finn's New New Year's Eve 2009 Challenge. I perhaps didn't challenge myself by much. But I have met my stated goal of completing one project.
The Mourning Quilt from Prairie Children and Their Quilts by Kathleen Tracy. I found this little quilt languishing in the bottom of my hexagon basket. The quilting was nearly done, but for some reason it had been set aside. A couple of evenings of stitching and attaching binding was all it took.
Now I'm ready to pull this project out and start getting some stitches in it. I won't be able to complete it before New Year's Eve, but it will be the perfect winter's day companion this year.
