July 3 …. Hand quilt along update…..

I switched projects for a bit here. My whole cloth is put on hold until I get the quilt done for Auntie. I told hubby that I feel I’m racing auntie’s time clock,for she is 84. I would love to have it done for her before she passes on.

Here is where I left off on my whole cloth quilt.

I have folded this patient quilt up .

I was able to do all the appliqué for 20 blocks.

Don’t look to closely at the appliqué stitching… nothing like Kathy’s,or Nanette’s lovely appliqué. However the blocks were wonky so it all fits in.😀
It’s a big one … queen size

I have a good half of it marked. I’m doing mostly grid work with little flowers between the star points .Here’s a photo of the grid work.

Regular grid work on the borders … diamond in the strips between blocks. Then do each star point a quarter inch in from the seam,and outside edge.

A view of the sunset last week from the camper window.

And a photo of my new hybrid of sunflowers.😁

They were make from left over garage door parts… I didn’t make them though,they came from the door company that we deal with as a gift.

That’s it for me this round.

  1. First ~ that sunset is stunning. I don’t think I have ever seen s sunset in such a deep purple color. Sweet garage part flowers, the perfect gift! Ingenious idea for hanging Aunties quilt in your tiny home. I love the pattern and colors for this quilt ~ Yes get her done so she can enjoy it!

    1. That sunset was gorgeous! It was a blistering hot day of 106* then we had a shower which cooled things down to 86* wonder it that had anything to do with the colors. I’m going to try to finish it this year….🤞😄

  2. Deb, are you in Texas? I think I have missed something. Love the whole cloth quilting and your Auntie’s quilt is fine! Thank you for the compliment. I miss out RV and traveling. I now know how I achieved so many hand applique quilts – in the RV! Hugs.

    1. Well, now that I realize I had my head in a bucket, I remember! You are moving and staying in the RV. DUH DUH DUH!!! I do love the “garage door flowers”. Very pretty to look at along with that beautiful sunset. Are you enjoying retirement? Hugs and don’t laugh I blame my cabin fever on the Russia War! LOL. Hugs
