Greetings!  Has been far too long between posts.

Here are a few recent works which I have completed:  Antebellum Quilt Block One designed by Barbara Brackman (see button on right side), Mini Shoofly Quilt designed by Valerie Langue of the Quilt Merchant/Journey of a Quilter blog and Windowpane designed by Kathleen Tracy, Sentimental Quilter blog February 2018 Small Quilt Challenge, respectively.

My friend, Sunny Dillingham sent me this beautiful bird fabric as we have both joined the Antebellum Quilt challenge.  Thank you, Sunny, for your generosity!

As you will see, the Windowpane quilt is a bit "puffy."  Used a different batting which I normally do not buy.  Somehow I acquired it and decided to use it here.  Perhaps once I wash it, the puffiness will be a bit tamer.  The Mini Shoofly was washed, giving it that crinkly antique appearance. 

Been having some left wrist issues.  MRI confirmed ganglion cyst.  Hand specialist recommended wearing brace at night (helping somewhat) and physical therapy.  While I had four sessions of PT, I am not convinced this is helping.  Will more than likely have the cyst removed laprascopicly.  In the meantime, I try to limit hand stitching to shorter periods at one stretch. 

Thank you for stopping by!
