Oh dear! I have just completed one of my little Civil War quilts but still have 2 more to baste and hand quilt. Then, ofcourse, there is the one that I am still hand piecing and had forgotten about. I have taken this opportunity to try out my new camera and the program it came with. I hope it works okay. So, here is the quilt I have finally completed.

                                                                And the label.

Each day I aspire to complete a border around a hexie flower for my Insanity quilt. So far I have done 20 something but have quite a few to go yet.

Quite a while ago I finished all of the stitcheries for the Once Upon A Time quilt. However, I recently discovered that I had neglected to stitch the border lines around each block. Perhaps I went a bit cross eyed after all that stitching. So, I am trying to complete them by doing one block per day .
I am itching to start cutting the bright spotty Kaffe Fasset Jelly Roll and fabrics for this quilt. But,I guess I will have to wait a while longer now. Ah well! I am off to my sewing room to baste one of the other little Civil War quilts ready to hand quilt. Working out how to quilt it is proving to be quite a challenge but I am sure some inspiration will strike......eventually.
Angel Blessings to you all.

  3. HI Ondrea - great projects - can't wait to see the Kaffe fabrics!

  4. Your little quilt is lovely, Ondrea. I'm sure you'll whip through those stitchery borders.

  5. I am looking forward to seeing your Once Upon a time quilt finish. Your civil quilt is just lovely.

  6. That little quilt is DARLING!! And I just love the stitched block!

  7. great finish on your mini!
    love your once upon a time, mine is still waiting to be quilted but I must admit I love it as a flimsy too. Did you use different coloured threads for the other blocks?
    Can't wait to see it coming together into a top.
    Great progress on your hexies too. Slow and steady wins the race

  8. fabulous civil war quilt and that's a good way to progress your hexies...

  9. Love the mini quilt....hang in there with the hexies, they will slowly get done, your stitchery is lovely.
