This is a place where quilters discuss books they are reading and share quilts they make based on those books.

I have been making slow progress on my quilt.  I made the stems out of a red, green, and white paisley.  I wanted the stems to be like a transition from the red "blood" stain to the cream of the new wall paint.  I have started putting the flowers on, but I am just learning how to applique and they are going very slowly.  I added the border to tie in the leaves.  So far, I am pretty happy with where it is going.
How are the rest of you doing?


  1. I haven't started mine yet. I've got my daughter's wedding next weekend, and everything new is on hold until after that. I kind of have an idea, but not totally committed to it just yet.

  2. Love what you are doing. Finished mine last night while watching the Detroit Tigers win another game. Yeah!! Can't wait to see your finished quilt. Hugs

  3. Miki, This is wonderful! I love how you interpreted the story in your piece. I always love seeing your "made" fabric, too!

  4. For a first time appliquer - you are doing a great job. Look forward to seeing it finished.

  5. Lovely! I haven't started mine yet. Have ideas written down and swirling in my mind but so far, nothing cut.
