Sunday is Quilting Day

I've been ordering Quilt Aid blocks and on Friday the first one arrived. Won't be starting this quilt for quite a while.

On Saturday we went to visit Elizabeth and Matt to wish them happy holidays - this coming Friday evening they fly out to Japan for a couple of weeks. Michael joined us for lunch - we had a lovely time.

I've been stitching this Leanne Beasley doiley ("Butterflies & Blossoms") over the last little while and was able to finish the stitching on Saturday. This is one of the designs from the Day of Inspired Stitches last April. Have to say, I love iron-on transfers.

Sunday afternoon was spent quilting "Happy Days" - this quilt is a little larger than the pattern because I wanted to use up all the jelly roll strips.

Next step is attaching the ruffle then binding.
This is another Leanne Beasley doiley ("Spring Garden") from the "Butterflies & Blossoms" pattern. I really should be stitching the Sweet Pea's blocks but I'm loving these doileys at the moment.

Cute stitcheries Lynda. It will be great to see your Quilt Aid blocks when you get to them, thought about doing them myself but I seem to have too much on my plate as it is.
