In process

Over the weekend, I cut out (and sorted!) all the pieces for "Eventide," and today I made my first five blocks. This is going to be a very pretty quilt!

I also worked on piecing the backing for "Dark Shadows." Yuk. Piecing the backing has to be my least favorite thing to do! The fabric gets so heavy.

I tend to be over a quilt top the moment I finish piecing it. Not long after I starting "quilting" I decided that in order to be able to call myself a "quilter" I needed to "quilt" something, so I made a very cute table runner, made the sandwich, quilted it on my machine, and made and applied the binding. It's still the one and only start to finish thing I've made! I decided to stick with what I like best, which is piecing.

It's a very rainy day here in Indiana... my sewing room is in the basement... and I took the pics with my the picture quality is poor.
I SHOULD go get the camera and use flash, but wrestling with piecing that quilt back wore me out!!!!


  1. You're off to a great start! Just getting Eventide cut out and sorted is a huge accomplishment. I think the piecing sounds easy!

  2. Love your blocks ! I see we are both in Thelma's Eventide sew along and both using Luna Notte fabric . How fun !!

  3. Your cut pieces look all nice and organize! You'll be sewing through them in no time. Can't wait to see the finished product!
