Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Elizabeth, this is another quilt I can't wait to see finished. Great work!
Oh Liz, these all go together so well, please don't break them up into two !
Linda, block #10 is beautiful! How close are you now?
I have 4 more blocks to go - 1 pieced block and 3 applique ones. That makes 15. After I lay them out I can decide what I can do with my scraps and if this will be 1 or 2 quilts.
My order from CT came today and I am very happy to see my lovely stuff!
Here is #10 pieced block that I had to fix this morning and #11 applique block that I finished at lunch time.
Linda, l'm admiring your great workmanship! And isn't this exiting?! Getting closer tl assembly time.
Looking back again to the others you have posted... I can't wait to see the finished quilt it is going to be lovely.
Linda, you do a beautiful job on your piecing.
Block #10....2 to go!
Lesson #3...Time management .. if you spend 5 days a wk. sewing for 4 hr. a day , in 50 wk. you'd have spent 1,000 hr. sewing in the year2020.That gives us 2 week's grace for illness, vacations etc .Seem like a lot of time? With 6 projects, it averages to 166.6 hr per PHD project,and with 3 ,it's 83.3...and of course, not all the ones on our lists take the same effort.This is why l suggest you do your time sensitive quilts first priority in your time frame.With wedding, graduation etc., there is a set date to honor. I suggest you spend the first 3 days/ week on those exclusively, then on other 2 days, change it up and do the project most near completion. Procratinating and too much skipping around flitting from one thing to next is how many of us got a closet full of ufo's! Our sewing tiime has to be spend wisely!
Linda. You know how to blend just the right colors together.
Chris, very sweet baby quilt.
Love how you did the O in Porter's name, Chris.
Adorable quilt, Chris.
Very nice baby quilt! Mom and baby will love this quilt!
I know this isn't on my PHD list, but I had to finish this baby quilt for a shower next Saturday. I got it quilted, bound and labeled today.
Oh, l love the green leafy material in that block, Linda! I keep wondering why it's called a pansey quilt when only one block really is a pansey shape and no pansey fabrics are used...hmmm.
Kris those Merganser duclings will have to take group diving lessons,lol. Zoe, all manner of trouble can befall ducks...bsides illness or mishap, hunters, foxes and other predators may have taken their toll on the flock. When females have young, they must rely on their camouflage of dull female coloring and try to blend with the foliage as they hide amongst reeds etc. If predators arrive, she will not take flight & abandon the wee ones, but flap wings and make a huge rukus to warn the rest of the flock to seek refuge elsewhere...knowing her little ones will join another family. We lived on the Muskoka River for 11 yr. and a few mallards would stay as long as the rapids kept river open from ice. We'd feed cracked corn in Jan./ Feb. to those that remained.Often they were the older or ones with damaged wings.
Sweet and interesting Kris.
Kris, that is impressive ! I wonder what happened to the other mother ducks.
