Green and White


I finally finished Green Piece......well I thought I had until I took the folded quilt back into my sewing room and saw the "flange" fabric hanging on the ladder.  Well I wasn't happy but I have decided that I will NOT be putting it on.......if I were to add this flange I would have to take off the outer border so I could attach it.  What would you do if it were your quilt?? 

I hung it on my clothes line to get photos, the photos are not the best because of the angle of the line.  I will take better photos when I get it quilted, I will be taking it to the quilt shop to get that done, it really needs "special" quilting around the applique blocks. 

The colors are really much nicer than these photos are showing.

Now to the WHITE...........

This is what it looks like outside my windows this morning, it is very wet heavy snow that may change to rain later..........the words "power outages" are being mentioned on the news also!  I have made sure that things are in order in case we do have an outage, we are fortunate enough to have a generator but I still don't run everything with the generator......but I know it could run my sewing machine, LOL!  Before today things were looking up in the snow melting department, this is certainly going to slow that down.  I do realize that I am blessed to be warm and safe during storms like this but I still have to grumble a little.

Have a wonderful day, wherever you are, whatever your weather!


  1. Your quilt is absolutley gorgeous... You are so gifted...

    As for that white stuff...I was grumblng because it was cold and windy this morning.. I think I am grateful now after seeing your snow.. We have no snow just windy and cold..

    Take care and have fun sewing..Lisa

  2. Your Green Piece is beautiful! I certainly wouldn't take it apart just to add the flange! I think it looks fine just the way it is! As for the can keep it! We got three inches of snow the other day and I almost cried! LOL Thankfully it's all melted now. :0)

  3. The Green Piece quilt is beautiful and I'd call it finished. It's so pretty it doesn't need another thing.

    I'll bet the girls are glad to have the new bigger coop to stay in with all the new snow. Hope it melts soon. We had snom all day Wednesday but it didn't last long.

  4. What a beautiful quilt! I think it is perfect just as it is. Hope you are enjoying this snowy day! Stay safe and warm, Julie
