The Internet Gods conspired against me during the 2015 Q2 Finish Along Party. The party came online in the hectic days before I left on my current trip, then the place I am staying, which was supposed to have internet provided, did not have it. It has been 4 days of running around trying to… Continue reading 2015 Finish Along Q2 Finishes and Q3 Goals
My flying geese quilt top is basically finished. I was originally going to add a small border, per this design below from EQ. Unfortunately, I don't have enough of the blue/green fabrics and did not like the look in other fabrics I did have enough of, so it will stay unbordered. Instead, I have decided… Continue reading Which Way Do I Go?

I think I may just have let things get a bit out of hand. I now have 41 diamonds and an additional 4 partially-pieced diamonds, and 6 inner diamonds waiting for borders, and possibly another few blocks or partial blocks hiding by the sewing machine. Or on the kitchen peninsula cutting table. Or on the… Continue reading Work in Progress Wednesday
There's really not much to see in the header pic, but it is the beginning of my A Lovely Year of Finishes goal for May. It is going to be a busy month (again), so I am choosing a fairly modest project. In January, I started a thread sampler as part of The Inbox Jaunt's… Continue reading ALYOF May Goal
I don't have many pictures, but I am home and back to quilting. Or rather piecing, though I have actual quilting planned for next week. I love how easily I can make these blocks. A little bit of time yesterday got me about 8 more blocks. Here are some of the more recent ones. I… Continue reading Finally Quilting Again
