Long time no see. Well, I blame Facebook. So many people have left blogger and moved to Facebook because they say it’s an easier format to use.
I think some things about Facebook are easier, like posting photos but to me it doesn’t feel as personal a blog.
I may not have been blogging but I have been busy stitching.
I finally got all the words stitched on my Bible Quilt
and the blocks put together.
This is my version of Jan Patek’s pattern.
You can read all about her quilt HERE.
The Bible Quilt was such a fun quilt to make and I really enjoyed the journey.
I wish I could say the same thing about this next quilt.
The 1718 Coverlet from the book by Susan Briscoe has to be one of the most challenging projects I have ever stitched. Partly because it has so many little pieces and partly because I am such a terrible piecer
This is my version. I am so, so happy to be finished with this top.
Maybe if I put it away for a while I will see it with new eyes.

"Di Ford’s Mystery Quilt”
This one I did enjoy making. It too was challenging but in a different way.
This was my first attempt at Broderie Perse and it has lots of English paper piecing.
I was too late to get in on Homestead Hearth’s BOM so I gathered my own fabrics Some from my stash and some I found on the internet.
Now that I am getting some of my projects completed it must be time to look around for something new.
Have you seen the Celebrating Mary Brown Pattern?
It was inspired by the Mary B Brown quilt circa 1851.
The pattern is by Corliss Searcey and is available in the US at Sentimental Stitches.
I hope everyone has been getting a lot of stitching done.
Until the next time,
