Butternut and Blue

My Barbara Brackman Civil War  quilt is back from the longarm quilter. It just needs binding and  have decided to call this one Butternut and Blue.
This was an online block a week. their were 52 blocks  in BB's   but I only got half way. This is still big enough for me. 
Barbara at   tells me it is machine guided rather than longarm quited which I understand is computerised. Well It's a great job and I am happy.

A Finish

Woo hoo a finish

Lots of you know I have been making these Klosjes for coming up for ------ years. Not even going to go their with that.
It's been a long time and have sewn these  little blocks through highs and lows of emotions.
I used  Cindy Blackberq's
Cindy gave me these when I stopped of in Townsend for the night when I was on my way to Paducah. We both had tight schedules so it was a  quick coffee and I was on my way again.

It's with mixed emotion I have now completed this quilt top and am worried I am going to get withdrawal symptoms - Not to worry she gave me the Apple Core stamp too so I can carry on stamping and stitching to my hearts desire.

I have stamped, cut and pieced 1820 pieces of fabric and that gives me a total of 364  three inch blocks.

But of course it's not a quilt until it's quilted so will promptly book this one in and I will really will  have a finish.  Woo Hoo .

A Three Year Give Away

Can you believe it I just realised that I have been blogging since January 2010.

Where does the time go!!!!!  I look back and cannot believe how much has happened in my life.
I have made so many friends around the world  through the blog it's  incredible. Many of you I will probably never meet but feel like their will always be  bonds that tie
I have been so fortunate to meet up with so many in person too and that is always very special.

So I'm having a three year anniversary  giveaway. Its a kit that I bought at the 2007 Vermont Quilt Festival.
The kit is by Froncie Quinn  In The Time of Toile. The centre is broderie perse and  know for sure  I will never make it,  So if anyone would like it please leave a comment and I will get someone to pull names out of the hat  on Tuesday the 5th February.

Thank you to all of you who have left comments and stuck with me through my trials and tributations over the past three years.

 Happy Stitching
