Finish Three- 2019

And the finishes keep coming!

But this one was two years in the making, so I hope

it was worth the wait!

My Delilah quilt, designed by Jen Kingwell and 

offered as a "Template of the Month" in 2017, has 

over 1650 pieces.

Blocks measure between 12" and 3".

Of some designs there are two blocks, others as 

many as nine!

 I was thrilled to find a fabric that worked so well 

as a backing!

And being from my favourite fabric store,

 Darn Cheap, it didn't break the bank!

I had an extra helper with my photo shoot this 


The grey binding was from Emma Jean Jansen's

"Classics" range, Bushsticks in Silver.

I love how the sun came shining through this 

photo.... totally unexpected!

 I spent one-month hand quilting "Shadows Of Love".

What will I do in the evenings now?

Maybe its time to pick the knitting up again?

Happy sewing!

Missing in Action....

Has it really been nearly three weeks between blog posts?

Life got in the way, I guess!

But I have been sewing, so here's a quick recap-

I found a pattern for my lightweight denim 

purchased in New Zealand...

  New Look #6500

Believe me, it looks far better on ME than it does on 

the sewing dummy!

I really love the fringe details!

And, yes, I started a new quilt with these fabrics!

It is a pattern called Meadowland.

I do have it pieced together but will save that until I 

can get a better photo!

 Mr. Adventure Bear is slowly coming together!

 Most evenings have been spent hand quilting my 

"Shadows of Love" quilt....

The colour is off a bit in this photo

The texture is wonderful!
I'm hoping to have this finished soon!

What have you been up to the last few weeks?

Happy sewing!
