Cross and Crown...a little progress..

A little more progress on this lovely. Just piecing a few at a time as the mood takes me..

Loving this, may have to keep this one for myself...

I'm just cutting and prepping a few at a time...ready to snatch a few moments here and there..

Working my way through this little stack of stash, and more..🤗

We're getting lots of rain, great for playing time in my sewing room..
Have a lovely weekend...🌹

Love this...Cross and Crown..

Love this... been a while since I've come across a quilt design that was love at first sight....and inspired to start on straight away.

Easy and a pleasure to piece.....These three blocks pieced just this morning.    

The blocks will be sashed with the background fabric, with red corner stones...It's a free pattern from McCalls called " Cross and Crown" by  Sandra Clemons.

Trying so hard to just use fabrics from my stash, but I only have a FQ of the beautiful red Fusion corner stone fabric...., so we'll see how big it ends up....

It's so cold here today, hope the sun shinning where you are...🌹

A Finish....

It's been so long since I've posted, I've almost forgotten how to use this app.
Here goes, hope this works! 

I haven't been doing a lot, but I do have a finish...
I think I started this in April, loved working on it. Here it's displayed on my old treadle sewing machine, with a few treasures.
I was going to hand quilt it, but poor Susie was needing a play. She was so sweet and played along beautifully.

I never know what to quilt, then go back to what works best for me!

This is what I'm working on now, love fussy cut paper piecing...

Have a lovely weekend..
Stay safe...🌹

Beginners Luck finish and something new....

I haven't really done much since my last post....but happy to post that Beginners Luck is quilted, done and dusted...🌹

Now I'm working on a little mini / doll quilt, not sure how I'm going to finish this cutie...just playing with it as I go....

                                ....while I was playing I ran up these little tote bags for three little misses....

Have a lovely Happy Easter and stay safe....🌹

WIP....on mission to finish this quilt.

Inspired by the beautiful doily quilt my dear friend Lois finished recently, please scroll back a few posts and see how beautiful it is...a family heirloom.
I'm on a mission to get this one in progress finished. Mine will be all in creams and tea dyed laces and doilies.


I'm making this by the Quilt as You Go method.  So much easier to machine quilt blocks and panels than a whole big quilt.

Off to play, see how much I can get done today....I'm hoping Sweet Susie will be happy to play too.

Have a lovely day...🌹
