It's been a long time...

... but here I am! As you can guess life has been busy... very busy. So not much was quilted or done.

But I do have some (little) progress to share with you.

Block 7 is finally finished and though the weather is overcast today again, I have decided not to postpone  taking photos.
 
The quilt with a bouquet of roses from my mum's garden.



As you can see, there is only one block left to quilt. The more I quilt it, the more I love it. I do not have to think about the design now because everything is planned for the last block and the two borders. Yesterday, measurements were made and paper templates drawn for the inside border.

A closer view of the block.

Don't you think that these concentric circles suit the block perfectly?



Even closer for some details.






 





When I needed a break from quilting, this is what I was working on.



It's a long forgotten project... Why am I SOOOOOO long on projects I love ?



 Stitched with silks, it is a beauty!!


Until later,
