Not Running Out

No, I’m not running out of things to do anytime soon!  I finally got around to clearing off my cutting table and found 4 unfinished projects.  So I carefully put them in bags so they could look up at me with reproach from a box on the floor … I’ll get to them soon!

This is what I took off of the frame today:

The top was made by Janice, a friend from my Quilts of Valor group.  I think it’s the right size to go to Quilts Beyond Borders, but I’ll have to re-measure to make sure; and if so, add a label.

I quilted it last night with a digital panto called Merrily Flowers by Anne Bright.  This one has hearts, flowers and fleur de lis in the pattern. She’s rapidly becoming my favorite digital quilting designer.  Her patterns work up quickly on my Side Saddle (and her designs are available for any computer file type).  My system came with a lot, but I feel a buying binge coming soon!

The magnolia’s are what’s blooming in my area now:

These big blossoms are lovely and the glossy leaves of the trees are wonderful.  Our pond has lots of fish for those who are willing to get their feet wet!

Happy hunting, Heron.

Wonderful colors on the quilt, and the quilting pattern is so cute! Great job!

I just love when the flowers start to bloom. Makes me smile that summer is just around the corner :D
