Raggedy Reverse Applique

finding UFOs (Unfinished objects) and PIGs (projects in Grocery bags) and Orphans as I tidy up the studio after a frantic holiday season.  This is one of 4 squares featuring the Raggedy Reverse Applique from an HGTV program . I serged the edges with wooly nylon and off it goes to the NICU along with a few other projects that just needed some finishing up.  feels GOOOOOOD!

Bloom Time Completed

It has been a JOY to design and stitch this quilt from beginning to end.  I loved the process and the finished quilt.  Hmmmmm, where to hang it?

Inspiration piece for Bloom Time

This quilt top was made by Lynn Taylor, one of my facebook friends.  she used it as her profile picture for a while.  I told her it was my inspiration for a quilt challenge quilt and promised to share.  She says her inspiration came from Kelly at Dont look now blog. so I went there.  and that's when I knew I would be adding a little bird to my design.
