Almost Done !!!

Well, I have been diligently working on my quilt and I hope that my sweet daughter will forgive me for not working on hers for a while. Just felt a need to do something a bit different for just a little while.
It is looking so comfy and I can hardly wait to get it done. I figure one more week at the most and I can snuggle up under it. Its not huge, maybe 65 x 48 with a 3 1/2 - 4 " border. Haven't quite decided yet.
I am going to call it my Vintage Roses quilt since the fabric is a vintage fabric with embroidered roses on it.


















Everyone needs to have a nice  comfy chair to sit in and this one with the sherpa is just the ticket. I can sit here for a very long time without feeling the need to move about.
 






                 Also an nice location with a view makes it perfect.

I will be back on your quilt Sissy as soon as this is done. It is in the basket right beside me saying, 

"Hey, don't forget about me". 



Your are on the top of the list to finish next.

Hope you all have a great day and at least take a moment to 
stitch a stitch a day.

Quiet Time and Maybe a Wink or Two For Me





Puppies are all settled down for a mid winters afternoon
 nap and I have some Teriyaki chicken in the slow cooker and I think I may join them for a couple of winks myself. My Quilt will still be there waiting for me when I wake up unless some little gremlins come and finish it for me.

Till tomorrow. TTFN

This One Is Mine.

I have three quilts going right now.  One is my daughters Hawaiian quilt, Two, is my granddaughters triangle quilt, and three is MY QUILT.

I am using fabric that was given to me a couple of years ago by a friend that I met on Facebook.

The center fabric is a raw silk with little tiny embroidered roses and the backing is a complementary cotton fabric with roses of the same color. It makes for a perfect match. Wasn't sure what I was going to do with the raw silk as it was too pretty to cut at all so my friend Monica from the Quilters Cottage in Toledo, Oregon, suggested doing a one on one quilt.
Perfect and when I found the backing I was so excited. She helped me to lay it out yesterday and this is what I have accomplished so far. I am going to love this.
The raw silk fabric seems to be a vintage fabric and three of us are in agreement on that. How do you like my combinations?

I am using the vine of the stem and leaves as my quilting guide.



Of course Baxter has to keep an eye out for visitors and then a much needed morning nap. Lab butts make great pillows.
So till tomorrow. 
Have a perfect creative day .
