Wednesday Quilters

One thing leads to another on The Web and today I found these wonderful sites to add to my growing list of blogs I follow:

Womenfolk: The Art of Quilting, a quilt history web site hosted by Judy Anne Breneman. Judy writes brief articles about the history of quilts and quilt patterns. I came upon this site from the Facebook fan page for Quilting Bloggers, which featured a beautiful Old Testament quilt by the same quilter, Judy Anne Breneman on her blog, Among the Usual Days. I'll have to file this one away for the future, because I'd really love to make that quilt! Her web site, and Womenfolk, have tons of information about quilt history and patterns.

I was looking forward to having Sunday and Monday off, when I thought I'd quilt up a storm. I didn't get a lot done on Sunday but I did bake bread all morning. I had worked on Saturday so I did what I usually do on Sunday when I work on Saturday: recover. But I did get some quilting done Monday, and have almost finished the Horse Quilt top, just need to decide on a border:
I know. It's very busy. VERY busy. I wish I'd used a solid color in the corners but I didn't. Elizabeth loves it, so that's all that matters.

I also got some work done on another UFO, which I'll post next week when they are finished. These are huge blocks, really four blocks in one almost; a pieced block that takes some time. But I'm happy to get it done, it's very, very scrappy.

After that: I'm pulling out a small wall quilt I appliqued who knows how long ago which has languished in my UFO box for years. It's really pretty and is begging for embellishment. I'm kind of glad it's been hanging around for so long, because way back then, nobody was embellishing quilts like we are now.

Glad this is a four day week, and I do not work on Saturday! Wow! A Two-Day Weekend!

Take care and happy quilting!

  2. The setting you used on Elizabeth's quilt is probably my favorite setting of all time. There's something very appealing to me about ordering all the squares and blocks to line up with sashing. The Cowgirl Quilt is busy but it's lively & spirited too and I bet it will be used to shreds.
