House and Quilting
Finally started moving into my house in mid April and I am so thankful to God who has blessed me beyond measure. My house is beautiful and I can't think of anything I would change. I have been working on quilts. Rachel and I are collaborating on a quilt for the New Quilts for an Old Favorite Contest. The block is 9 patch and we are in the "How do we quilt this?" stage. Rachel is going to do the quilting. We are also collaborating on a bed quilt and it has trapunto, raw edge applique, tiny piping. hand applique........................just an lot of extras on it. I need to hand applique on it and then send it on to Rachel to work on for awhile. I am also working on a "Vegetable" quilt. I have always wanted a vegetable quilt. These two projects are UFO's and I have some more to finish upstairs. My vegetable quilt is hand painted, hand dyed, commercial fabrics, raw edge applique and thread painting. Of course it will be a wall quilt. I am so excited to be quilting again!!!!! Just a glimpse of my updated farmhouse..........I want to plant old fashion flowers around it! Need to work on grass this summer and prepare beds for next year.
