Keep Stitching!

When the weatherman predicted this 10 inches of snow, we got ready for it!

Knowing that I would not be able to get to my snowed in clothesline for quilty pictures, I used the clear sunny afternoon before the storm to take these pictures of my Log cabin.

This quilt is a nice 70 by 84 inches and you might be able to tell that I am still working on the hand hemming of the red binding.

The quilting looks beautiful in the sunlight!

Here is the backing.

I also want to show the binding up closer.

Julie, from Juliequilts sent the most amazing box chock-a-block full of new strings, wheee!

I definitely feel a new string quilt in my future, but right now I've been plugging along on that Arkansas Crossroads piecing project. Thank you, Julie! Enjoy that package of selvedges that I sent in return.

We have a new lady who has joined our Tuesday quilting group and her name is Sarah. Here she is helping me get my blocks pressed. Thank you, Sarah!

Sarah brought in the most fabulous tote filled with older panels that she'd rescued from a neighbor.

Look at this stack of free fabrics!

Thank you, Sarah!

Keep stitching and Happy quilting!

WOW! You really got hit with the snow--our city would come to a halt with a snow like that one. Sarah is a wonderful addition to the group.

Good thing you got your quilt photos before that got dumped on you!
The log cabin is another winner.
Fun to have another quilter join the ranks, and she brought offerings--how lovely! :)
