Thank you Judy. It is a wedding gift for a cousin and she grew up on the California coast. I was thing sea glass and sand. I also bought the fabrics at multiple quilt stores for this project.
I bet she cries happy tears when she sees this quilt ...
I think she will like it as she and I did a pinterest page and she pinned similar things.
I'm continuing to work on the Dillyflower stitch along. Here's a photo of some completed units (minus the background fabric), snacks of prepped EPP templates ready to be stitched together, and a stack of cut fabric ready to be wrapped around templates once some become available.
As I was working on these, I got the feeling that I had seen them before. I looked in my computer directories and sure enough! Back in 2014, there was another stitch along being done but they were called Hexden... a combination of Hexagon + Dresden Fan. I didn't participate in that one but my notes are still there.
You were very productive! Very pretty!
I tried something new yesterday and it was fun. ( I'm easily entertained). Last year DS#1 tried tapping his maple tree and boiled down the sap to make syrup. I have 3 maple trees so he gave me the stuff I needed and directions of what to do. I successfully tapped my trees and got almost a gallon of sap just yesterday. I have to go out a couple of times a day to harvest what dripped. Not sure how long this will go on, but it is interesting to see how much I get. I will deliver the sap and he ca do the boiling. Besides, it was in the upper 40s and it was good to get out and get some fresh air.
Sounds like you are a regular pioneer woman!
My son and his twins had done that for some years in Maryland and found it a rewarding family thing to do. Now that the girls are off to college he is still doing it ...
Ami, that is looking great. You got a lot done.
Well this working full time is definitely cutting into my sewing. I did quilt 3 lap size charity quilts this weekend, practicing edge to edge patterns. And I have setmyself a goal of one hour a night embroidering those silly pine branches on the top garland block of my Christmas quilt. I keep finding excuses to not work on it. Soooo many pineneedles....perhaps a goal of just 1 hour will get me going.
