I can't believe it is already mid-April! I haven't been blogging but I have been quilting. I've been working on three projects, all of which have advanced, some more successfully than others. The first project, and the one I have finished with, is a group project that one of the women in my craft group… Continue reading Where did the time go?
Another finish for the year! Rather than working on my Improv Wall quilt, I started playing with the circular attachment for my sewing machine. Here's the result: Raindrops? I'm quite pleased with it on the whole, and amazed that the transparency effects worked out as well and as easily as they did. I had some… Continue reading Raindrops
I've finished my improv top! It was quite a bit more effort to put everything together since all of the blocks were random sizes and I was trying to make sure I would have enough fabric for the entire top. The header image is how much fabric I was left over with, so I am… Continue reading Top Done
Just a quick update, since, with one thing and another, a lot of time has gone by since my last post. I am quilting! Just not taking many pictures of the my work in progress.

I might have added a bit to the length to improve the proportions...but I have run out of the white background fabric. There aren't very many quilt shops in Israel, and fabric is quite expensive. I… Continue reading Quilt Top Done
As I mentioned last time I posted, last weekend I came up with an idea for another quilt using bonus half-square triangles from another quilt I made. My last two quilts have had minimum quilting, so for this one I aim to leave lots of room for more elaborate quilting. The basic idea I came… Continue reading A Small Update
I've been looking forward to the weekend when I would have time to quilt. I've had at least three projects in mind in recent weeks. As you enter my flat, you can see a wall with a hanger for quilts. I've had the quilt hanger for some time, but there was nowhere to put it… Continue reading There is work in progress
