I'm still working on pieces and parts for Coastal Lily, which doesn't make for very interesting blogging pictures. I am mixing up the piecing of the petal blocks with the geese blocks so at least I have some sort of a progress picture.
I can't make any bloom blocks until I get my berries done. And even though I have some berries done, I don't want to be switching out presser feet and thread any more than I have to, so I won't be making that corner berry block until all the berries are done. And even then I still need to add the berry stems, which is a different presser foot altogether and different thread. Trust me when I tell you it's coming together nicely, I'm enjoying any time I spend in my sewing room, and I'll have more colorful and exciting pictures coming soon.
Since you were nice enough to stop by today, I thought the least I could do was share a few more pictures of something quilting related to make it worth your while.
Making those berry circles reminded me of this quilt that was in the Infinite Variety Red and White Quilt Show. This was my favorite quilt and I regret that I wasn't able to work in a few of these circle blocks in my Red and White Tribute Quilt. I may have to just make a few red circles once I'm done with my blue ones.
And speaking of red and white quilts, Thimble Creek Quilt Shop had some beautiful red and white quilts at Spring Market this year, I thought I would share them with you just in case you missed them.
This beauty is called Red Prelude.
This one is Readin',Writin', and Rithmetic
And this one, my favorite, is called Red Letter Day.
And even though I already own this red and white Thimble Creek pattern, Rendezvous, I bought the other 3 new ones
I stopped in the Thimble Creek booth at the Road to California Quilt Show and visited with Joe and Roxie Wood. The booth was packed with quilters but they were both as friendly and welcoming to me as they could be. Here's a link to their online shop if you're interested in adding these patterns to your collection.
