Back into the Swing of Things!!/Mail

I am finding it very difficult to get back to a routine. With the holidays and my husband home for the winter; I find I am not taking the time I should with my sewing and quilting....but, here we go.

I have got a commissioned quilt in the frame and hand quilting it. I put it in on New Year's Eve, it is about 1/2 quilted. This isn't the best picture,but you get to see the quilt. I am also doing some practice on my FMQ for the challenge this month...Frances has given a wonderful Tutorial to follow...loving the leaves. I still have to get my sample quilt pieced....and I am working on something for next month;

Here is a pic of the quilt for now.  hope you stick with me to see what is coming up later on. Enjoy your weekend. Oh I had to come back in and add to this post.  I just got my mail for the day; nice surprise package in it. My Happy Camper Dessert Roll  was there!!! Thank you Katie from Katie's Salt Marsh Path....this was from here Christmas giveaway....the fabric is lovely.


  1. Wow! Hand are flying with it, only starting New Years Eve. I would love to see a close up picture of your quilting. I have never tried to hand quilt but you might inspire me. Is there any tips you could give?

  2. Love the commission quilt - I can't believe you've already done half of it!! Lovely prize as well - congratulations!

  3. Love the daisies in the commissioned quilt! Nice colours, too!

  4. The daisies are great. you are defn flying along with your hand quilting! I have only ever machine quilted also... so far! :)

  5. That is a very pretty quilt that you are hand quilting. You must be very fast at it. I have one in my closet that I've been hand quilting for a few years.
    I'm too busy doing everything else. I promised myself to take it to UFO day until I finished it but now I'm working on a wedding quilt for my son.

  6. This is just what I am looking for. My SIL requested I make her a quilt and this one has her name all over it. Please share who Frances is and where I can find the tutorial.
