This & That . . .


I’ve been working on a little quilt using a layer cake of the Rural Jardin line of fabric by Moda.  This is one of those designs that didn’t turn out like I wanted it to and now I’m in the process of trying to save it and move on.  I’ll have to see how that works out – it may end up in the bag of UFOs to be dealt with years from now.


Still working on HST, Snowbound appliqué and some other curly q’s.  There always seems to be something in multiples sitting beside the sewing machine lately.

I’m anxiously awaiting the delivery of this book into my mailbox.  This book is the first from the owners of  The Quilt Patch in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan and I’m so looking forward to getting my hands on it.

There is a workshop planned for October 16, 2010 in Brandon, Manitoba and the quilt on the front cover is going to be the project of the day.  I understand that there is only a few spaces left in the workshop so if anyone who is planning on being in the Brandon area on October 16th, please drop me an email and I’ll get the details out to you.  There is also a trunk show of Jeanne and Shelley’s quilts scheduled for the Friday night, October 15th, and I’m looking forward to seeing all the projects from the book as well as some of their new Fall designs.

I’ll be able to mark one Christmas present off my list once I get this quilt done – some lucky family member is going to find this under the tree with their name on it!

Hi Marlene,
I haven't been visiting many blogs of late so have been having a 'visiting morning'!! You have a new look layout since last time I visited...looks great. I love the work you have been producing and your garden...just beautiful. Also love the 2 images of the wine glasses in front of the greenery. Keep up the great work!

"Tis the Season" looks like it would be a good quilt book. Has it arrived?
