What's On My Board

The question was posed on QA, so I am showing my board and also another project I am currently working on.  Not very orderly, but it's me.  :)   On the left is a piece of ugly cloth I used up some leftover paint on not too long ago.  The colors remind me of blueberry pie, so my thought was to combine it with the hexagons to the right of it (painted dryer sheets) and incorporate a bee or bees?   Any thoughts on this?  Trust me, nothing is TOO radical!   It is definitely in the stewing phase right now.

Here is a closeup.  I have done a bit of stitching.

This morning I have been working on quilting the top for a friend.  She wanted a matalasse type of quilting and left it up to me the design.  I decided on leaves as you can see below.

A closeup to show the stitching.

I have been playing with this face off and on for a couple of months now, hand stitching.  It will be for my daughter.  I made her some curtains a few years ago with material that contains this face, very unusual commercial fabric.  I thought she would enjoy an addition.  :)

I have a few other things on  my board that are also stewing, but in the background right now.  I am off to finish binding Audrey's quilt.
I am looking forward to seeing what is on everyone else's board!


  1. I am impressed with the blue piece and also the quilting closeup.

  2. I think your berry piece shows great promise and the quilt you're making for a friend has wonderful quilting.
