A Solution for too many quilts on the go...............

Dia Duit, I was feeling overwhelmed with the number of quilts I have on the go..........and thought.....when I have sewing days....work on one quilt and make 10 blocks..........then the following sewing day........pick up the next project and make 10 blocks......hopefully I will not become discouraged............and the quilts will eventually be finished............
The Splendid Sampler..........

Horror upon horror............I started Dear Jane in 2006 and cannot believe it has been 11 years since I started this project..........I dragged the boxes out of the cupboard....and I thought the 100 blocks would be crappy....to my delight.......they are well stitched........also I had done alot of preparation.....and choosing the fabrics as well...so here goes...........
The Farmer's Wife sadly I had given my original quilt away.........and decided to remake it in the new Tilda Bumble bee range.........10 blocks done.....
The Civil War Sampler......same scenario....was given to a family member with no regard for it.......my dear friend gave me some Orchard fabrics.........10 blocks made.........
Coverlet have decided to sit of a night when it is not too hot.....and make some progress with this
Applique Tulip Quilt....havenot touched this one since last year.....as with Lucy Boston........night time and winter projects hopefully....will be interesting at the end of the year....if my solution has worked....time will tell heh...Slan, O'faigh

Crib Quilts Delivery


Dia Duit, I miss seeing our Jess, she leads such a busy life. Yesterday, I went into town and had lunch with her and her work buddy. On the way, we went upto the Special Care Nursery and delivered the crib quilts and little beanies. It warmed my heart to see the little quilts that I had made in use. Slan, O'faigh
