a little project

I enjoyed sewing with these Fig Tree fabrics so much that I wanted to make something more.  I used a pattern in the Quilt Sampler magazine Spring/Summer 2012. 
It went together quickly - anytime I had 5 or 10 free minutes I would run down to my sewing machine and piece or cut a little  :0)
It's only 18 inches square so it shouldn't take too long to quilt.  The next couple weeks will be busy with lots of family visiting.  Hopefully there will still be time to take a stitch or 2 in the evenings!
Happy Quilting!!

vine panel #7

I'm always so excited to add a newly finished panel to my Susan McCord vine quilt!  :0)
I don't suppose this looks all that different from the last time I posted it after attaching panel #6.  But, it is growing and now I'm more than 1/2 way to a finished quilt.

 I can imagine it finished, quilted and draped over the bed.  Maybe in a couple of years...  :0)
I still find it to be such a relaxing and fun project to work on. 

6 more panels to go.
I'd love to get started on panel #8 but I will take a little break to make the last block for my Bird of Paradise quilt.  Watching Jane's progress with quilting hers makes me eager to get mine to that stage.  I think that designing the borders for it will be fun too.

Happy Quilting!
