What's on the Wall NOW?

Gibson carefully supervises the application of the binding to Sunbonnet Sue. The hand stitching is yet to be done, but I'm saving that for Sunday morning on the back porch, listening to my favourite radio program.

So here's the next project. I started it in February while I was at a retreat, but when I got this far, I realized all the patterns had to be enlarged. DANG! I took care of that little chore, so now I'm ready to add the embroidery, applique, and embellishments to this quilt top.The pattern came from an older issue of Australian Patchwork & Quilting vol 13 no 9. Here's a photo of the finished quilt.


  1. It's going to be neat, I would have done the applique first and then let it sit on the shelf- just kidding- That layout would make for an interesting photo transfer quilt, one could do it in a couples wedding colors and make a nice gift. cw

  2. I love the fall colors of your next project. Of course your it coordinates perfectly with Gibson. LOL

  3. You are sewing like gangbusters!
    so what is the favorite radio show?
    I like to hand sew on "Sunday morning" to a show by that name...lots of human interest stories.

    I've been slowed by a viral infection in the voice for over 3 weeks now!
    Thank goodness I can type :0)

    Happy sewing
