The boxes are packed....




And, I think I'm ready to go!.......Here are my last 3 completed projects, and they are now available on my web site.  www.timelesstraditionsquilts.com   The quilt is named Silent Night.  There is all kinds of activity going on under the light of a full moon.  This was a very enjoyable quilt to make.  The applique is all wool on a cotton background, and the log cabin blocks are pieced from my scraps of plaids, stripes and wonderful home spun type fabrics.
 
 
 

 
 
This fellow ended up being a pillow after all.  This pattern is called Tidings of Joy.  The snowman itself is pieced from several different wools.  It is wool on a pieced cotton fabric background.  I used scraps from my stash, which are stored in a big copper boiler overflowing with plaids, stripes and that sort of thing.  I find it difficult to cut into a big hunk of newly purchased fabric.  I pull from my scraps first.  It seems I need to admire my new fabric for a while.......crazy, yes well it is I guess.
 
 
 
 
 
 
This pillow is called Snow Buddies.  Once again the snowmen are made from wool and are on a nine patch made from cotton fabric.  If you notice how these pillows are finished......it is a method I use to make them look like they have piping, except they don't.  They are bound as you would a quilt and the binding is stuffed.  Very easy!
 
 
Last evening a few friends met to have dinner together and to sew.  It was a very special time.  Nothing is better than the sharing of good food and nurturing soul food as well. I have just a little thought to close with..."What we see depends mainly on what we look for".    - John Lubbock
