Another quilt to finish

When I moved things to the new studio I didn’t pack away any of the quilts that are partially hand quilted.    If they are out in the open I will be more likely to work on them.     I did finish one so far.


Today I have another one to show you.    I started this one ages ago!   see the post here

And here is the finished top.


I opened it up to see how much I had finished and teddy took it as an opportunity to pose.

Happy Quilting

    I just wanted to let you know what a lift I get every time I read (and see) one of your posts. The exquisite hand work, the vibrant flowers and Teddy – what more could one need? Thank you

  2. Terry says:

    I loved this quilt top too and am glad to see it “out in the light” again. I too look forward to your uplifting posts. Thank you for sharing your work and world with us!

    Tim ….Your quilts are absolutely beautiful. You are inspirational! Sandy

    I enjoy your posts as well. Not only do I enjoy seeing what you’re working on it nudges me a little to get back to my own projects. One question – okay 2 – Why do you quit working on a project and do you find when you get back to your project your stitching changes as far as length, etc? Just wondering………..

      I have so may quilts going at once and so many new Ideas that sometimes I just set one aside and it sort of gets forgotten for a while….when I do come back to it I always go back to the same needle and thread size so that the stitching matches what I was doing before

    Love both quilts, but especially the one you’re working on! And the garden… oh my – what fond memories it brings back of my grandmother’s garden in Olivet, MI. Looks like Teddy has been to the groomer. He looks so handsome.

    Add me to the list of admirers. Love, love the “new” top that you are working on. I have disciplined myself to finish one of my UFOs before I can start something new. I do have the occasional breakdown, but for the most part I have made some progress.
    The garden looks glorious, and Teddy is as handsome as ever!

    I loooove that suspension bridge quilt and went back to read about your starting it. In one of your comments back then, you said it would take a few more days! Well, it looks like its time has come and I am one of the fortunate witnesses. Teddy is a smart guy, he knows when and where to pose for his best look.

    Love the quilt! Nice variety of colors! And my favorite garden photo was the third one — white flowers — I don’t know what they’re called but they’re absolutely gorgeous!

  10. terryknott says:

    This is one of my favorite quilts so I am happy to see it in your quilting fingers again! I so enjoy your blog and how much you share your quilts, garden and Teddy with all of us!

  11. Wow, Tim! This one was a real find! Have you given it a BB#?

  12. Waaaait a minute. You made this top, didn’t you? I missed that post! Suspension Bridge it is!

  13. Marg says:

    Love both quilts, at first I didn’t like the first one, but seeing it finished changed me! the second is my favorite thought. Teddy looks so soft and cuddley, give him a squeeze! thanks for sharing

    Your garden photos always make me feel uplifted, they make me miss the East Coast even more. It was 107 here on the 17th . It is very hot and dry here.
    The quilts are pretty . Teddy looks so cute and happy..
    I’ve been working on the addition to my Granddaughters quilt. I’m nearly finished. It hadn’t taken as long as I expected it to. It took about 3 weeks to do the piecing but, the quilting had not taken but about a week and ahalf. It took a minute to find a fabric to match what was on the back or I would have been done last month. Is a little quirky both big stitched with heatrs and letters etc. I’ll send a photo when I’ve completed it.
    Give Teddy a pat for me.😊

    I love the spikey quilt! American Beauty? Suspension Bridge? Variation? It just cries to be handquilted, and I am so glad you are working on it. I see so many vintage tops that I want to quilt. I have to be very careful, because I don’t have a lot of storage room. I could easily get carried away! Love to Teddy!
