Quilter's Day Book... Today I am....

Today I am hand quilting:

Sunshine on my shoulder.
I am wearing black yoga pants, green tee shirt, pink hoodie sweater, Mama's blue terry bedroom slippers.  Its a little coolish today for Memorial Day weekend.

Baptist Fans

I am hearing the wind.

Marked arcs.

I am cooking a small roast slow cooked in the oven, with potatoes, carrots, celery and onions.  One hour on 325, one hour on 200 and then sitting in oven which has been turned off.  Will be very tender!!!
Love the disappearing ink.

Earlier today I cleaned out Mama's cedar chest.... found another quilt top.  I'll soon be hand quilting another Grandma Quilt.

Home made pattern.
I am reading The Couple's Devotional Bible, Words for Encouragement For a Discouraged World, and scraps quilting books looking for quilting ideas.

All my supplies
I am feeling happy that I have time off from work and for today all is right with the world....

Debbie, you are really coming along on your quilt. Was the new quilt top a surprise?? How exciting!

I will be so happy to see the Baptist Fans quilt when it is done.
While in Alleghany County, driving mountain roads, we have seen several 'barn quilts'. Have you and hubby considered putting one on your little red barn?

Sounds like you are enjoying a cooler spring also, hope this means we won't have such a hot summer. Love your Baptist Fan quilting, it's a favorite of mine. Enjoy your long week-end.

This makes me want to put up my frame..was thinking about using the Baptist Fan pattern for my log cabin quilt when I finish does the pattern work, do you just place each piece to the next one and trace OR is it connected and I can not see where...

love this top!!!
