I have completed several projects in the past few weeks, but have not posted much since I have been sick with pneumonia. I am finally starting to feel a bit better and am ready to try to get back to my normal schedule. . .hmmm, do I have a normal schedule?
Recently I did a commission for a blue willow table runner. I just love making these and this one was especially fun to make and quilt.
You can see the McTavishing I did in ends in the first photo. I really love doing that.
In the next photo you can see the whole quilt. I don’t have much blue willow fabric left, but I still have lots of the stripe medallions. I bought a bolt of that last year from a quilt shop in Texas. but the regular blue and white print is pretty scarce. Last time I saw some on eBay it sold for $150.00 for two yards. Egad!
I have also been working on the next two sets of blocks for my Sylvia’s bridal sampler quilt. I will post those pictures as soon as I get the blocks finished and pictures taken.
My April Sweat Pea quilt just came back from Keepsake Quilting Catalog so watch for that pattern being offered in their next issue. I am very excited to finally get one of my patterns in their catalog. Also watch for another of my patterns coming in the October issue of Quilter’s World magazine. It will be a great fall sunflower pattern called Spinning Sunflowers. I am finally getting some of my work published in magazines and books this year and trying to finish up my Charming Botanicals Series. I just sent the March pattern off to the publisher and will start working on the last two, May and June this month.
Before I got sick I had planned to have all my pattern quilts professionally photographed to redo my pattern covers. That got derailed when I went into the hospital. Now that I am recovering I am going to get back to that project and have those quilts photographed by a local photographer whose wife is a quilter!! Look for lots of new things coming in my blog including the next BOM block coming soon!
