Noah & Matilda

I have been spending my time putting together the blocks from quilts I have worked on over the past two years.

Noah and Matilda has been a top for a few weeks but I couldn’t find a place to take a picture that would show the whole quilt until now.

This quilt is full of so many cute little blocks that I had never seen before.  
I tried to pick some of my favorite blocks and came up with six. 
It was really difficult because I like them all.


If you decide to make this quilt I hope you won’t skip the borders.  I know there are a lot of little grapes to stitch but the borders really add so much to the quilt.

The pattern for Noah and Matilda can be found here.

Until the next time.

"Harrison Rose" and Other Things.

You may or may not have noticed I haven’t been around blog land for a while.  I have spent most of my time trying to discover what else other than quilting I might enjoy doing.
There surely must be something.  It’s not shopping, gardening or cooking that’s for sure.

I did a little knitting.
 I finally sewed in all the ends and blocked this shawl.  Poor thing has been hanging around forever.

Traveling with my grandchildren is on the top of my list.
We had a fun trip to FL until I came down with Strep and had to come home early.  Let me just say stay away from people with Strep because it can be really hard on  elderly people- like me.

Now that I am recovered it’s back to my quilting.

I finished all the blocks for my Harrison Rose quilt and put the top together.  It’s such a lovely pattern and didn’t take too long to complete.  Once the beautiful feathers are quilted in the border I know it will look even better.
I really enjoyed working on Harrison Rose one of Collector with a Needle’s great patterns.  All of Dawn’s beautiful pattern can be found on her Etsy shop here.

Until the next time,
