Once Upon A Tile

It's been very hot and humid here the past few weeks so I've been sitting in the house, trying to stay cool, and working on a few more blocks of my new design "Once Upon A Tile".

I still haven't decided on a setting for these blocks, but I'm hoping by the time I finish the remaining 5 blocks I'll figure out something.

I also managed to get the binding sewn on to the last 2 quilts I showed you so I just have to do the hand sewing now.  That may take a while!! lol

Bye for now.

Today is the 2nd anniversary of my dear Mom's passing.  I still miss her very much.  Mom always loved to see what I was working on and when I would get "stuck" she would encourage me to keep going.  At times, if she didn't like something she wouldn't be shy about telling me.  Often, she would be confirming that nagging doubt that I already had and was trying to ignore!

As promised, here are a few more blocks of my new design, "Once Upon A Tile". The lighting wasn't very good when I took the photos and the backgrounds look like different colors, but they are really all the same.

I'm still not sure how I am going to set the blocks, so for now I'll just keep on appliqueing.

Hope you all have a great weekend. Bye for now.

This morning I received a lovely email from Lynda MacKenzie of Vancouver Island, B.C. with photos of a duvet cover and baby quilt she made using a few patterns from my "All About Bears" series.
They are fantastic!  I think the settings she used were just perfect.

I've not been doing too much quilting this past week as I'm trying to get some curtains made. We're having some company later this summer and I thought I would try and spruce up the bedrooms a bit. I'm anxious to get back to my applique. I'm working on block 5 of my new "Once Upon a Tile" design. I hope to have some photos to show you next post.
Bye for now.
