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?
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. After a bit of a break after finishing my last quilt, I began playing with my improv blocks. They started… Continue reading I am still here!
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.

My original plan was to make a loop to continue the curvy part of the border… Continue reading I think the quilting is done…
I've been filling in the spaces in my quilt. It's fun because it is going quite quickly and I am seeing the quilt take shape. Here's where I am now: I wish I had put another channel in between the bubbles in the ghost diamond and the 'headband' portion, but I would have had to… Continue reading Liking this so far!
The weekend is barely started, and I have already gotten more quilting time in than in the previous month or two. My ruler work experiment has started. Here's what I have so far. The next stage will be to fill in the areas I want to be quilted down with some free motion filler designs… Continue reading Where I am now
