A bit of progress

So, I've finished appliqueing those flowers and leaves by hand, unto the side edges of the tea-cup quilt. And I've pin basted half of the butterfly quilt. It's time to lower the feed dogs on my sewing machine and go to town with the meandering quilting. As per usual, I'm making two quilts at once! Well, not always. I'm planning to make the next quilt all by it's own self. That quilt is something I keep tossing around in my mind. One thing I'm sure of, I know who the recipient is. She doesn't know about it, though. Lately I've been thinking about making a half-log cabin or some other kind of string quilt. I reserve the right to change my mind, that's part of the fun. I have a pretty good sized library of quilt books. But sometimes I read a lot of them, and then embark on my own idea, anyhow.

Nice border -- have fun quilting! I always work on more than one quilt at a time, too. It gives me something to do when I get stuck!

Love those teacups more every time I see them. I'm with you about more than one at a time...I need to switch it up. Keeps me from getting bored. Also keeps me from finishing things, but I get to them eventually.

I thought that quilt books were to inspire our own ideas. They do for me. I also change the design as I go. The quilt talks to me but sometimes I wish it would say its piece a little quicker in the process.
