AAQI and Blueberry Pie

Remember this little quilt?
My Blueberry Pie quilt is for sale on the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative website! It is a wonderful organization to support by either making a little quilt or by buying a little quilt.
 Go check out all the wonderful little quilts! It is so inspiring.
Happy Stitching!

Excitement is mounting!

When I get close to the end of a quilt I have worked on for a long time, I just can't help myself...I get a lot excited! And I start becoming a little obsessive about sewing too!  I finished border #3 last night in record time.

Today I pinned border #4!

It won't be long before the quilt top is done...just another week or two!

By then it will be cool enough to resume my hand quilting. It wasn't a plan but the timing is working out well. I can hardly wait...

Happy Stitching!

A Gazillion Geese

Ok, maybe not a gazillion geese, but close to it...

We finally had a short break from the heat and I was able to not just sew but actually turn on my iron without roasting. What a treat!

Now the heat is back so I won't be in my sewing room for at least the rest of the week, but when I do I can get started sewing these into groups of 8 for my Wild Goose Chase sashing.

Happily, I am prepared for the summer. I pinned my third border for my applique quilt so that will keep me busy.

It's going to be a beauty and I find myself already wondering how I am going to quilt it.

Happy Stitching!
