MamaNanaPatterns just added a new baby quilt pattern Sweetpea that I just love. If you love flower quilts but don't like to applique, check it out.
This blog is a look at my life and activities as a quilter,quilt teacher,ex-pat and mother with an eye to the humor in our lives and our work.
For those who like a more modern look, this pattern works great too.
You can find out more about this cutie here-and even purchase it! Its a pdf. download.
Years ago, I made a wedding quilt for my daughter and I divided the quilt into panels so it would be easier to applique..there were 6 panels--2 center panels and four side panels. I had started to applique the second center panel when I realized that it was the bottom panel and I had already finished it! I "immediately" got to work on the top panel of course.
I baste all my applique pieces on and then do the applique so here it was-the repeat bottom panel-all ready to be put in the closet to be finished all on its lonesome someday and that day is today!

I'm linking to Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathysquilts a link party devoted to all types of hand work from quilting and applique to knitting and embroidery. Stop by and see all the wonderful creations worked on or finished this week.
I've also been working on the embroidery project I took with me. When the quilt shop I used to teach at closed, they gifted me with a full box of blue floss so I thought I'd put to good use.
