Well, actually, everything I am about to show you was completed long before the snow started to fly. As summer turned to fall I began stitching Snow Days, the January block of the Sweet Nostalgia BOM.
The last time I showed you my Kansas Dug-Out, I was deciding on border and binding colour. As you can see I went with a black border and coloured binding. This little dug-out was hand pieced and quilted, in the ditch, with black thread.
My third Hocuspocusville block, Spooky Lou's.
And, a long time coming, but now finished my Amish Stripe quilt. Machine pieced in 2008 and recently hand quilted with a variegated thread.
I also machine quilted my free-form quilt and decided not to square up the edges before binding. Letting it remain in its free-form state seemed like the thing to do.
Remember Jeanneke's Building Houses with Scraps from last year? Well, here is my mini version. I hand pieced a house or two each month and put it all together before the end of the year. Once hand quilted the binding will be done in the same fabric as the corner squares.
And, what I spent most of my time working on, my Shades of Autumn POTC quilt top. The blocks were hand pieced in 2009-2010, but I still had a long way to go added the sashing and borders.
The colour in this photo is more true to the fabric I used for the Shades of Autumn POTC background. So, try and image this earthy yellow colour instead of the washed out white (damn the camera) in the quilt top photo above, Much nicer, yes?
That was autumn and it's on to winter, more to tell you another day.
Until next time.....happy quilting!
