What we are working on

My little "quilting buddy" often comes running wondering what two-legs is up to, and for once I was able to take a picture before he scampered off


What is he walking on? I have pulled out my Sugar Camp Quilt, making it top priority to finish! This quilt has been a rocky road... I had a ball with those HST units back in January 2009, and getting the top together didn't take too much time. I did most of the appliqué, all the while thinking this looks wrong! So I ripped everything out...

For a while I was thinking of several options: 1) re-do the appliqué, 2) embroider the outlines of the shapes, 3) make the shapes part of the quilting pattern... On my New Year's resolutions for 2010 it was no.1 on the priority list (I haven't gotten much done on the other two projects on that list, either), but couldn't make up my mind about that appliqué. Monday evening I finally bit the dust



Two of the dreaded a-blocks are finished, two more to go, and then I can get on to quilting!

I just checked in and I love the little turtle! I also love your quilting. I am a big fan of handquilters. My stitching is not quite as nice as yours! Can't wait to see more!
