Cool Sewing

Tuesday was a warm day, well the whole week has been over 30 degrees, so with lightness of heart, joy of spirit, and gladness in creativity, I put the air conditioner on and sewed to my heart’s content!! Oh bliss! Oh joy!

Wanna see? First I finished up my Abundance top using Lori’s fab tutorial…

20130207-150249.jpg…chose my backing (the wavy stripe) and binding (cream tone on tone), and cotton wadding…

20130207-150416.jpg…and it’s all basted and ready to go! Except that I had an altercation with a knife, came off second best – as you do! – and won’t be hand quilting for a while ‘cos it was my under hand finger. Healing nicely, but it will be a little while before it’s in use!

I also made the next block from Barbara Brackman’s Dixie Diary….

Have a lovely weekend.

Happy stitching

    You’ve been busy (again), we had a couple of hot days too, nothing better than staying inside stitching. I’ve been seeing the Abundance quiltlet around a few blogs now, your version is very nice. Are you going to be doing the applique on your Dixie Diary blocks or leaving them plain (I much prefer the plain version)

    I do like seeing your choice of colours in your Abundance top. I have also stitched the 2nd Dixie Diary block, I have appliqued the mine with the heart, simply because my sister is using the star. I hope your cut finger heals quickly.

    When I was little, my Granny used to recite a poem about hurting your finger – I shall have to try to remember the words for you!! You certainly got lots done – isn’t it a good feeling to see projects taking shape – and even better being finished!
    Have a good weekend xx

    I love your Abundance quilt! It is so fun to see all the variations depending on fabrics and color placement within the block. This was my first quiltalong with Lori but definitely not the last!
