Berries and Blossoms Quilt | Pine Valley Quilts

Its an applique day today, making an early start while the rest of the house sleeps.

Kitty Kat  Ready to start Quilting | Pine Valley Quilts

My faithful Kitty Kat is here to help.I have spent snippets of time in between spending time with family, making all these circles and flowers for the borders of my quilt. 160 circles on the border alone, but well worth it as they really look great. The borders are basted and all ready to be stitched down. I am stitching my applique invisibly by machine, although it is faster it is a little tedious at times. A good audio book keeps me going, I have been listening to 'The Summer Girls' by Mary Alice Munroe. Applique Flowers | Pine Valley QuiltsBlossoms and Berries Quilt |  Pine Valley Quilts

Happy Stitching

Sharon it is beautiful. I love the colors and design! I will come back to see it finished.
I am always sewing in the evening with the sound of a movie on the background! (my husband is watching/sleeping for the tv)

Hi Sharon love love these colours you are working in. I’m either working on my 1930 GMFG or making tiny pieces of applique to make flowers for my LE> I have been dreaming a lot of my DJ lately so I think I will have to give in and go back to making some more blocks for her it is such a long time since I made any. Cheers Glenda

I have been missing in action for a few days....... do you get withdrawal symptoms when you don't get to sew?... I do. Seriously I'm addicted!

Today is a good day, I am in my happy place at the sewing machine. My machine is cleaned and oiled, with a new needle and I am ready to go. I plan to get busy finishing the flying geese units for the final border on my Vintage Nine Patch Quilt.

I think I'm also addicted to Flying Geese blocks, they are so cute in the border. Rose Of Thorns measures 22 inches square.
