I can't believe that so much time has gone by since I last blogged. I finally finished putting together my friendship triangle exchange quilt that was started many many months ago!

It really has turned out nicely and I am excited to get it quilted. I think I have decided to let someone else do the quilting on this one. Feathers! I really want feathers! And a flannel backing so it is nice to cuddle under. And then I will probably gift it to someone I love!

I almost took this quilt apart before I put the border on it. This is the hazard of working on something every once in a while. My tree trunks use three different fabrics. Guess who forgot to somewhat evenly distribute them when laying out the blocks? And guess who didn't notice until they were all put together?

Here is one clump of the same trunks!

And here is another.

Despite it looking a little 'clumpish', I like it! A lot!

I have been doing a bit of knitting lately and will have something to show for it soon...but it is taking me a while to get these socks I am working on going. The other night I realized that I was doing the pattern wrong and had to rip out everything I had knitted. I am almost to the heel again! That's what happens when I pay more attention to the TV than to my needles!

Happy Stitching!


  1. Well, trees do tend to grown in 'stands' in nature - like trees group together - so it works!

  2. What a great fabric exchange quilt. I'm sure who ever receives it won't be upset with "clumping" trees. They will love it !

  3. Love that the trees are "clumped" together.... this is a gorgeous quilt Ann. I just love the idea of a flannel backing, somehow it suits the tree theme... cozy and cuddly. Nice work on this beautiful quilt. Can't wait to see your knitting project.
