On the Table


Here is the Double Irish Chain on the quilt frame in the sunroom. It really matches the walls perfectly. Maybe it will find a new home there. Of course it will be there for the better part of a year getting quilted. I want to get green thread for doing the green border in fans. The rest will be done in off-white. That is all the quilt stuff I have done today and we are off to town now so that will probably be it for the day. I am so stiff from all the kneeling to baste yesterday that I wouldn't get much done anyway. Showing my age I guess!

I love quilting frame. Is it hard on your back sitting at the frame and working?

wow, a whole year. Do you do it all yourself without helpers?

Wow a year! Maybe I shouldn't be so hard on myself how long it's taking me to quilt my first quilt - and it's only a cot quilt LOL

Love the colour you chose for your sunroom wall.

Your quilt looks lovely in your sunroom, Joyce. I really like your color choices of your Double Irish Chain. Very natural...organic...like a meadow.

Love that quilting frame, it's so sturdy. Most seem so flimsy. The quilt looks wonderful!

Love this quilt!

You are lucky you can get down onto your knees. I am told I need a new one- 'they' dont like to give them out until you are 'older'- you might live too long, & wear it out!!

Soooo, I have started making smaller quilts, that I can pin or baste on the table.
