Starting the second year.

Quilt Mom, Anna from Alberta, Canada, was the winner of the little quilt and I had a very nice email from her. Doesn't have a blog of her own but likes to read them and get inspired like the rest of us. So Anna, thanks again for following Kim's advice and coming to my porch for a visit.

I have finally finished the Your Truly Round Robin made with the Carol Doaks blocks and instructions. I machine quilted it and am pleased.

I did mostly in the ditch or 1/4 in. straight stitching as I have not conquered the free motion. AS you can see those stitches in the open spots aren't as even but will do. I know once it has been washed they won't show as much either. The border of Fleur-de-lies aren't too even either but it's done.

Just to show you the closeup and corner.

Paper piecing is fun and you can get very good points but doing a large quilt with all paper pieced blocks is not for me.

I have the Block of the Month all put together but have not gotten to the basement where I have a big open table to trim it and cut the borders. Until then you will just have to wait to see it.

I do need to get another little Mini basted to have something to quilt here on the porch while I watch my soap in the afternoon or the baseball game in the evenings. Also another one to get to machine quilting.

Sort of a boring start to my second year. But Hubby is taking a lot of my time these days.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Eileen you did a fine job with your quilting on the Round Robin. Remember if you can't see it from a galloping horse it's okay. LOL!

Sorry George is taking more time. I feel bad that he has all these problems, but nice that you get one day a week for yourself. That's a wonderful friend. Take care.
