Westering Women



Worked hard on this binding today, and it's DONE!

This is my version of Barbara Brackman's 2016 BOM, Westering Women.  Thank you, Barbara, for an excellent study series!  Looking forward to this month's Yankee Diary article :)

I'm counting this as a Slow Sunday Stitching entry also, because finishing the binding with coffee was a nice start to my morning.

RSC17: March - red


Sort-of red: this week I finished up this small quilt using
red and blue 30s-repro orphan blocks. 
And that'll do it for RSC red ...

Long Time Gone - week 2


Well, this project isn't going to be my usual
color palette or fabric style, is it?

RSC17 - a finish!


30s Steps - a bright springy completion

This quilt began with some swap blocks, and for a couple of years I added more blocks via Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  Then everything sat for quite a while, until last fall when I started assembling a top.  Another lengthy pause ... and now I've finally made it to the finish line: quilted, bound and ready to use this season!  It kind of reminds me of jellybeans :)
