Cherry Pie

March 30, 2008

Yesterday was my Dressed for Dinner class at the LQS, Quilter’s Point. It is always a delight for me to sit around with other quilters and sew and TALK! Here is the progress I have made on my cherry pie.


I think I am going to add it into the block with the apple pie, somehow.


Feathers and More Feathers

March 27, 2008

Feathers; I must have feathers on the brain. I signed my daughter up for a bird watching activity with the Girl Scouts. The activity was called Feathers on the Wind and was set for last Saturday. I signed her up many months ago so I marked it on my calendar and forgot about it. Well last Friday I check my calendar to see what is going on Saturday and find “9:00-12:00 Feathers on the Wind”. So I start racking my brain trying to figure out what Feathers on the Wind is… did I sign up for a quilting class on feathers?does someone’s quilt need feathers on it?… is there a You-tube video I am supposed to watch on quilting feathers?… Half the morning had gone by before I figured out it had nothing to do with quilting, but birds!!


And more feathers. I’m currently working on a bargello and here is a shot of the border. I’m using King Tut thread and it is so beautiful. The photo does not show the nuances of the color changes in the thread. This is the first time I’ve used King Tut but I am sold. I’m going to have to get some more. I’m turning into a thread junkie!

My friend Jan is teaching a class at the LQS on the Dresden Plate. Isn’t her sample lovely?



It is so nice, I’d like to take the class myself.


Dressed for Dinner Update

March 11, 2008

I’ve been spending less time posting and reading blogs and, gee, I’ve been getting more quilting done!! Funny how that works!

Here is the progress that I have made on Dressed for Dinner:


Mr. Turkey is done except for the buttons on his vest and his eye.


The heart is done.


And I’ve made good progress on the apple pie. By the way, that is not the background on which it goes.
I’ve been thinking about the family dinners at my house. My dad makes a great apple pie. But my MIL also makes a great cherry pie. I’m thinking that I need to give equal time to the cherry pie. So I’m looking at the design of the quilt and trying to figure out where and how I can add another pie. You can never have too many pies!! WOW! I can almost smell them baking now.
