let us get back to quilting!

Today is my last day with students, the paperwork is nearly complete, the anxiety of the next classes is several weeks away, hospice work is manageable--time to return to quilting--and quilt blogging!
I have managed a bit of sewing now and then, have been working on crumb blocks for this piece that is growing nicely.

I have this quilt for my sister Beth--I intended to give it to her two years ago, got the machine binding and most of the handwork done last year, and have about 1/2 hour of hand sewing left on it. It has been in use on the couches for the past year, the kids have used it with pins in it, they are very careful around quilts. I love that Hoffman peacock feather fabric in the border. It had been on my shelves for at least a decade. There was about 6 inches of it left over after using it in this wide border.

The crumb blocks on your shirt quilt are awesome. The whole thing looks so cozy. I love it!

That crumb/plaid quilt is very cool!

My gosh girl - that crumby (?) plaid quilt is just wonderful!!! Talk about being a free spirit, unafraid, a quilter who goes where no quilter has gone before (almost!). I really LOVE it!!!
