Sunday Quilting

I have been busy hand quilting.   Here are a few pictures of what I have been working on today (click pictures to enlarge)

I started working with the Fantasy Garden fabric.   I have one block done.

The picture is not doing it justice.  The lighting is washing out the contrast in the triangles but you can get the idea.

I will use all ten of the fabrics in the collection.  All blocks will be in the same design but different fabric combinations.

More about that tomorrow

Be sure to check back tomorrow for details on entering the Fabric Giveaway

Happy Quilting

    Lovely, Tim. I’ve been working on research for the AQSG’s 19th century basket quilt study (americanquiltstudygroup.org). If you or any of our friends who follow your blog have Any resources they’d care to share with me, I would be very appreciative.
    Again, I always love seeing what you have to share with us!

    It’s such a joy to see your quilting on the antique quilt. That quilt seems to me to deserve your time and talent. Thanks for letting us follow it

    Those fabrics are just gorgeous. It’s going to be beautiful, and I think a bit of a departure from your normal work. Looking forward to more progress shots.

      it really is a bit of a departure …..I think that is what appealed to me…..working on a very traditional antique it is fun to have something on the opposite end of the scale as well

    Those prints are so needed on this cold winter day. Spring will come again. I really like the florals for a change.

    just a beautiful combination of spring lilies against warm brown soil…

    Love, love, love the antique quilt. You are more than doing it justice. I didn’t realize how much difference the trapunto would make. Very nice.

      I wasn’t sure about doing it but I am so glad I did , I have a lot more to go, but I now have enough done to get a real vision of it and it begins to go faster somehow

    Oh wow!!!!! Lovely block , they couldn’t have named that fabric any better.
    The vintage quilt is going to be a wonder .

    Tim, your latest post of the Fantasy Garden Fabric reminded me of the recently opened FB group ‘ Smimmering Quilts with Jenny Boker’…….😊

    Love that vintage quilt! I’m glad you share you progress. I haven’t quilted in months – had knitting projects to get out of the way and I really need to quilt – got a big itch about it. I have 3 kits I could work on (which is rare for me to buy) and a couple other things I really really want to start. I was going to do just that today but was asked to watch my 4-year-old grandson, Henry – he comes ahead even of quilting! (One of the quilts I want to make will be for him). My job SO gets in the way of quilting, ha ha!

    Oh, Tim, your quilting on the antique quilt is gorgeous–you are really saving a treasure! I like your new quilt block as well.

  11. Lorij says:

    Very pretty. It looks like some of the old quilts that had lots of flowers and colors when I was a child. So, so, pretty.
    I’m excited about the give away.

  12. Rose in VT says:

    Isn’t it wonderful to sew bright colorful fabrics during winter? It’s a nice prelude to what we’ll be seeing outside in a few months.

    Love the quilting on the flower quilt. Such a wonderful mixture of colors. Your quilting is making it look fabulous!

    Please erase my previous post. It was posted before I was ready.
    I enjoy seeing your quilts and the work you have done on them. My first full quilt (self taught) was for my daughter of her dresses she out grew. Later years a friend invited me to a class where a lady was willing to teach quilting as long as you wanted to learn. Altogether it has been 46 years. Thanks for the chance at winning a bundle of fat quaters. Am planning a quilt for my son who requested one.

    I really love watching the progress on your anitque applique quilt. It is a such a beauty.

    It’s divine, just love how the trapuntoed feathers are standing proud. Nice fabrics in your blocks too.
