What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

WOW, that looks wonderful.  I hadn't seen the entire thing, love the mix of pieced and applique.  anxious to see your quilting on it.

That "mix" is why I am calling it a masterpiece ... the pieced part is more or less "normal" but the applique just sends the quilt over the moon, so to speak.

Well, kiddo, when you make up your mind to "power through" something, you are unstoppable.

I would say that when I make up my mind something needs to get done then I get it done. 

Thanks Dee. I am excited to quilt this as well. The background was a solid on purpose so I could do some really fancy quilting. There are a few things ahead of this (your quilt and a few others). That will ensure that I get to this one soon. I also have one of mine ahead of it as well. My goal is that this must be quilted and bound by the end of the year.

I'm so glad you "powered through".  That quilt is beyond amazing!  I love that little squirrel!

Thanks Lynne! The squirrels were a real challenge but now that they are done I think they will make more appearances on future quilts. I am always drawn to pieced quilts with applique. In fact my forever quilt I finished last winter is also a log cabin with an applique border. It is not on my blog yet because I want a really nice photo shoot of that one. I did put it on the facebook challenge Ellen nominated me for.

As you may remember, each year I make a memory quilt for those who are retiring from the high school I worked at for so many years. I had three to make this year and it will probably be my last because I have been retired long enough that those left are all fairly new and unknown to me.  Sadly, thanks to the stupid virus we couldn't have a retirement party to deliver the quilts so they are still sitting here with me. Hopefully, we can get together this fall for a small get together.  I wish I would have gotten better photos so you could see how the signature blocks mixed with the novelty blocks that depicted that depicted their interests.

Sorry they turned sideways for some reason, and it would only let me post one at a time.  

I am sure the recipients will treasure those. Hopefully you will be able to present them soon. With the signature blocks I bet those are a ton of work.
