Quilty Day


I got to quilt all day and this is all I have to show for it! Well, right now anyway. This is A-4 Courtney's Stethoscope from the Dear Jane quilt. I had most of it hand pieced for over a week -- just needed to do the border pieces, which I did late this afternoon when I took a break from machine quilting.
I managed to finish one ufo -- a placemat that I made many years ago -- I think I have 4 of the same that I pieced and hand quilted, but didn't finish this one. So I practiced machine quilting on it, bound it, and rinsed to wash out the marking pen -- so it's still wet -- I'll show it tomorrow! I also dug out an old, old mystery quilt I did. I love it and have put off quilting it because I didn't know what to do with it and I didn't want to ruin it! So, today, I have started quilting it -- just in the ditch so far. I'll show it when it's done! And that's been my day!

Great looking block, Joanne.

I can't wait to see pics of your mystery quilt all quilted up. Good for you! I bet that you'll be glad you held off until you were certain.

Anyone who has the patience to do a Dear Jane quilt is an amazing quilter in my book.

Do we have to wait til the whole mystery is quilted before we can see it???
