This was kind of a crazy week. "You have a significant scratch on your cornea." The upshot was I could not wear my contacts for a week. My glasses are 10 years old and I have had 2 prescription changes for my contacts in that time. I hardly ever wear my glasses. I found that it was hard to see detail. I changed my focus for the week. Think large. I quilted a fleece throw for a birthday present, a charity quilt and a mid-sized quilt.
Remember the fabric I ordered and got in the mail last week? I put the inner border on my Oh My Stars quilt and then went to add the outer border. When I unfolded it I found it was a yard less than what I had ordered and been charged for. I called the shop and they apologized profusely then immediately sent the right amount while I sent the short piece back to them. I hope to get that border on this coming week. 

I put the borders on my #1 Ashcombe quilt, pieced up a flannel backing for it and got it quilted. This is made from the Riley Blake Quite Contrary collection. That was a big chunk of the fabric out this week. I pieced all the blocks (the fabric was already cut out) for a twin of this quilt. 
I did free motion quilting on this of loops and heart shaped leaves. It was fast and fun.
I love the green plaid I used for the binding. The flannel backing is so soft. I find I am using flannel on the back more often. It really is nice. 
I need to make a total of 4 of these quilts. One and one half down, two and a half to go. 

Because of my bad eyesight this week I was not able to do any machine applique on my basket quilt. I tell you, Monday can't get here soon enough. I also plan on getting new glasses soon. This is ridiculous.

Hope you have a great week QFF*!

Remember, we do this for fun..


  1. It amazes me that you were able to accomplish as much as you did with the eye/glasses problem. Great going.

  2. Love your Ashcombe quilt. It's fun!
    Great numbers so far this year.

  3. I saw that pattern and have admired it. You pattern makes me admire it even more.

  4. That is a very cute quilt! Hope your eyes get better soon.

  5. That Ashcombe quilt is wonderful. not being to see, misery.

  6. I found your blog through Kara's. How are you guys doing? I see Kara on Facebook every once in a while.

    The colors in this quilt are great. I'm afraid I haven't quilted in a while. Well, not since my kids broke my machine. I have two quilts to finish when I get it repaired.

    Mostly I've been writing. I have a blog all about that. And I've started running. It's a love hate relationship, but mostly love. I guess. ;)

    Hope you are doing well.
