Just stitching...

Tonight while I worked third shift, I took some time to work on a stitchery project. This is "The Joy of Christmas", designed by Gail Pan.  I bought this pattern at the Vermont Quilt Festival last year, and I'm finally getting around to stitching it.  Hopefully I'll have it done soon since its a fairly small and simple project.

I've just downloaded the blogger app for my phone, so far it seems easy to use.  Maybe this will make it easier for me to blog. Fingers crossed...

February 26

Last night, we had our monthly guild meeting.   We had a man who makes wooden quilting accessories and he talked about the things he makes (quilt racks, ladders, stilettos, seam ripper handles, custom tables for machines) and he sold some of his items, and his wife showed us some of her gorgeous applique quilts.   It wasn't the most exciting meeting in the world, but I never complain when I get to see a trunk show.

I showed the quilt you see in the picture as part of Show & Tell.  I just finished this quilt over the weekend.  I had it mostly finished back before Christmas, but I got sidetracked for a while by other projects.   It is my standard crumb blocks sewn together as a four patch and framed.   This quilt  measures about 60" square and will be going to the Pediatric Oncology Clinic.

Okay, so I've been a very lazy blogger lately.   I have done some quilting projects recently, and I'm going to start sharing things here again (I know I always say that, but this time I mean it!).  If you want more up to date pictures, the best place to see them is on Instagram, you can follow me there if you'd like I'm @Traceyquilts overthere.

This quilt is "Peppermint Sticks" by Terry Atkinson, I can't remember which book it was in.  It's a UFO from about 4 or 5 years ago and I finally quilted and bound it.  This will be going to Wrap A Smile.
