Hawaiian Springtime

This work in progress is called "Hawaiian Springtime".  Sort of a traditional hawaiian style art quilt, made with stripped and pieced leftover fabrics.  If you look closely you can see dancing ladies.   It is approx. 23" x 23".  I hope to quilt it later on today.  Depends on how the weekend goes!

Welcome Spring!

I have no real plan for this yet, but it makes me happy because it looks like Spring.  The azaleas are in bloom down here, and pretty soon the wisteria will make its appearance.  Then in April, all the roses will be in bloom.  I love it!   Tune in later to see what becomes of this scrap quilt top...

Le Cirque quilt completed!

This quilt is 84"x 96" and there is a narrow orange binding.  The photo is poor quality because it was dark in the room, my sons were holding it up to the ceiling on wobbly footstools, and I snapped it quickly to give them some relief.  I will try to take a better photo at another time, and maybe a few close-ups of areas that are hard to see.

I am about halfway through quilting the blocks of my quilt.  So far so good, going pretty slow and small areas at a time.
