There was no time in my studio this past weekend. :-( But the foyer has a nice, clean, fresh coat of paint on it!
One of my goals this year it try to post to my blog more often. It does take time, so we'll see how that goes!
However, I have moved onto the second block of the My Enchanted Garden quilt. This is how it looked at the end of last week.
The book is great with really clear instructions and wonderful color photos. You can see that I changed the color of the vase to a blue and white print. Since I have a small collection of Blue Willow and Flow blue dishes, I thought it was more appropriate!
The book also has full size downloadable patterns.. so nice! No playing around with enlarging on the copy machine, although I think that option is available also. But mine never seem to line up when I do that!
This is my progress on this block as of today.
I still need to do the beading on the first block. I will try to show that finished block next.
I love the fabric that you chose for the vase, very ming-like.The patience you must have for the level of detail of each block, chapeau!ReplyDelete
Nice vase; reminds me of "Delftsblau". You must have great patience to make a quilt entirely of appliqué blocks.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! Great to make your vase more personalized like that. And your hand work makes me want to get back to mine.:) Blogging does take time. Sometimes I wonder if I spent less time on that, would I quilt more? But then when I blog consistently, it helps me stay on track with my quilting because I want to post about it! It's a conundrum.:)ReplyDelete
Beatiful! Beatiful! Beautiful!ReplyDelete
Such a pretty block - love your choice of blue and white for the vase. That book does look wonderful. I'm sure those gorgeous photos make you want to do every single project in there! Happy sewing!ReplyDelete
very pretty. I love working with wool and cotton together in blocks.ReplyDelete
Lovely block - is it hand appliqued or machine? I'm glad you changed the vase, the blue is so nice. Cant wait to see more of the blocks.ReplyDelete
Such a beautiful block. I like the change to the blue and white for the vase.ReplyDelete
What a lovely block! You've made quite a bit of progress on it. I invite you to like to WIPs Be Gone to show off this eye candy. Also, I love the look of your blog - so crisp and brightReplyDelete
Love love wool appliqué, and I've done a fair bit. I'm on the hunt for ivory wool for daisy petals... I have several of the greens you're using for the leaves, as leaves in a kitty wallhanging I made a few years ago! I also love your ocean floor quilt across the top of your blog. Gorgeous! :-)ReplyDelete
I'm enjoying watching your progress on this. Your color choices are perfect!ReplyDelete
Deb, I love the fabric you've used on your vase here. Looks just like Delftware. As far as not spending time in the studio. that's real life calling. It happens to us all. Keep at the blogging, though, I love to read your posts.ReplyDelete
Simply gorgeous Deb! I love that you changed it to blue and white for the vase. Flowers always look lovely set in something blue and white. I just received some blue and white fabric for appliqueing a vase too!ReplyDelete
It's so special when you adapt a pattern to fit what you have or own. love the blue vase. Thanks for linking to WIPs Be Gone. I'm going to enjoy watching all the blocks come to life.ReplyDelete
