I missed my report last week because my parents were here. We had a very fun family event which took most of my attention. My mom is a quilter also so we had lots to talk about. She had a specific fabric she wanted to look for so last Friday we hit 6 fabric/quilt stores in 2 hours. I didn't buy anything. Talk about being focused. I was on the look out for some great pink for the double wedding ring. I don't think I found it. I did see some that would do but I don't absolutely love them.

Later I did find the backing fabric for that quilt. I think it is the first time I have bought the backing before I even had the fabric for the top. It is a bright fabric of unbrellas. I really like it.

So that is my 7.5 yards in. I sewed up the backing and started quilting my Flowers Forever. I have it more than half way quilted, all the outline stitching of the applique. I have three quilt tops to quilt for my mom. We will be going to Ariz. next month so I am trying to get them done before we go. Therefore I took the Flowers Forever off the machine and put one of moms on. It seems that I will be doing a lot of quilting and not much sewing in the next couple of weeks.

I am getting the Grandmother's Diamond Ring up on the design board. Boy is it confusing. I have the book in my left hand as I put the blocks up with my right hand. This is one that I must pay attention to. I hope to sew a few seams this coming week.

I hope you get a lot of quilting done this week. Here's to happy stitching for one and all.


  1. WOW, that quilt is awesome! What book is it from? I am anxious to watch your progress on this project!

  2. Oh My! I love this. I've never seen this design before.

  3. This is a new design to me as well. It looks wonderful!

  4. I'm sure I have that book, but I thought it was just to LOOK at!! Oh, it will be beautiful!

  5. I love this pattern! I can't wait to see more!
