Quilting Weather Persists

The rain has actually stopped, but it's still too wet outside to do any gardening. The lawn is desperately needing to be cut but the grass has to dry off a bit. In the meantime, I have finished another sample for my workshops for Fibre Arts Festival and worked out the class description and supply list. It will be posted to the website shortly.
I dug out another "flimsy" to quilt, this one from a few year's back. Originally this was to be a nursery wallhanging, a companion piece to a baby quilt featured in a Quilter's Newsletter special issue. However, the editor decided there was only room for the quilt instructions so we went with just that. This got tossed in the huge pile of tops in the closet. With the addition of a couple of borders, it is now crib sized and ready to finish.The stash yielded a piece of flannelette the right size and colour. Now for the dreaded basting. If only there was a way to skip this part...


  1. Gorgeous. Wish I was close enough to take your class.

  2. Can you send some rain this way? It's very dry here, I think nature has forgotten us! Love your workshop samples, the green one is so pretty - and the baby quilt is very cute.
