Just a little sewing this week

I did get my braid quilt center done.  Someone suggested that I leave the braid strips as is and I just LOVED that idea.  I'm gong to take the remaining logs and piece a darker border to frame it nicely.  I'm trying to come up with a wonderful feather design to go in the corners and then try some McTavishing on the remaining purple space.  Not real sure how to quilt the braids themselves, but there will be lots of quilting on those too!!

And I finished the boxes in boxes quilt.  This one is for me and Rocco, we have lap time on the floor.  I sit on the floor spread the quilt out and he jumps in my lap.  He's a german short hair pointer, but he thinks he's a little lap dog!!  I'm so happy to have a quilt of my own for watching tv and snuggly with my puppy from time to time.  The colors are perfect for me.  And I pieced the back, very excited about that.  It was practice for the H2H quilt.  I almost got this one centered right but I think I know what I need to do to get the H2H quilt just right!

And here is it just waiting or me in my chair!!   Stop by Sarah's to see what everyone else has done this week.


  1. Love the progress of the braids. Your ME quilt is just wonderful - front and back. What a beautiful picture of 'quilt in chair' - sounds like a painting.

  2. I really like what you have done with the braids~!
    Wow, I want to crawl in your chair with that quilt. Everything here on this post looks wonderful.

  3. All the quilts are great! I notice that the floor under the boxes quilt looks like a quilt too!! Cool! Whoop! Whoop!

  4. Oh, you have been VERY busy!! I love the braids, and your H2H quilt is awesome!! And isn't it nice to have a quilt of your very own to snuggle up in? Whoop whoop!!


I would love to hear from you, comments and questions welcome!
