Progress and Projects on the side

I have finished the forest fire rebuild quilt for our friends. Its going in the mail , now that Canada Post has unfortunately been ordered back to work. We are hoping it arrives before Christmas, fingers crossed.

Its getting done in between challenges and other projects I have on the go.

These blocks were hauled around all over the country side while being worked on.

I love Dresden Plate blocks. I began this quilt a long time ago.

This quilt is intended to be finished by end of November ready to begin hand quilting on this treasured quilt. With the goal to be complete hand quilting by summer of 2019.

I've decided that instead of in the ditch or some 'overall' hand quilting like clams, I will do something different. Different from clam design below.

This quilt is so toasty, we use it only when its really cold outside. I'm actually considering unpicking the entire thing. Have you done this kinda crazy thing? Its going to be a big job, but my hubby loves this quilt,but its so warm, we rarely use it.

I love  blending generations of fabric. Its so forgiving, even while at first you think, NO, those colors can't go together and they do!

I've  been mending clothing and making a few upcycled fashions for winter too. Also, my lovely pattern for new dresses for next summer arrived this fall and looking forward to sewing those over the winter. 

Christmas is just around the corner, decorating, soon to get our tree up. Wishing you all a great time doing what you love.

Happy Quilting


  1. These are just great!!! Nothing like a generational quilt

    1. I agree, I am really happy and have another post on more Dresden Plate fun coming soon.

  2. I'm a believer that pretty much all colours go together - after all, they do in nature so why not in our quilts? I really like the Dresden Plate quilt - the colours in that are wonderful.

    1. Oh thank you Mary Anne! New post on this coming soon.

  3. Goodness, unpicking the entire thing! That will be a lot of work but a labor of love if, in the end, you will use the quilt more. What a great color blend in the Dresden Plate quilt.

    1. Thank you Warm Quilts! I love using all the scraps I accumulate
