Times Remembered 3

Here are two more blocks from my Times Remembered quilt.


Baltimore Urn and Butterfly Bush


I think Baltimore Urn is my favourite block. But, if you ask me tomorrow, I may change my mind. I love them all! The sweet little kitty, taking a nap, in the Butterfly Bush block, is made from wool.


Look what Jack Frost painted on my window. Isn't it beautiful?


Finally back working on the Polka-Dot Girls. Teapot and Roses Border is the third (and final) stitchery from Block One. Sadly, I will have to restitch Forget-Me-Not and My Friends, because of the pellon issue. But, have decided to redo them when all the other stitchery has been completed.

I came across a new blog, called Applique on the Go. Margaret also prepares her applique background by thread basting. Her method is a little different then mine and better suited for more detailed applique. Another blog, I will be keeping an eye on is Quiltsalott. Janet's needle-turn applique and hand quilting is just beautiful. Also, Bee In My Bonnet . Such a cute name! You may recognize Lori's wonderful applique patterns. And a sure way to put a smile on your face is to visit 10 year old Abby, at Abby's Adventures.

Until next week.....happy quilting!

I love them all!! That kitty looks so cozy.

I just made my Polka Dot Girls from block 1 too. I can't imagine having to do one over, they are so much work to draw. I wish they came pre-printed. LOL

Isn't Mr. Frost just the nicest fellow? To bring you some art - all for free. I used to love looking at the windows when I was a little girl. I don't get uch frost on these windows now.
Lovely blocks. I can see why you like working on them.

I love your "Times Remembered" blocks. I'm not familiar with that pattern but I'd sure like to be. Is it an older one?

Thanks for the links. I had fun visiting.

Thanks also for the comments you left on my blog regarding the TAT BOM in wool. I thoroughly enjoyed doing it.

Your applique is as beautiful as what Jack Frost created on your window. I love the extension of the applique outside the "window", into the sashing.

Oh, your applique is just lovely. Jack Frost left his own applique. Thanks for the links.
