There has been a lot of this going on since I arrived at the cabin on Friday afternoon.
I just needed to add the “completer” border to the outside edge of the H quilt so that the design from the center went all the way to the edge.
I did some rearranging of the sewing nook at the cabin so that the long table was to my left, and this allowed me to sew with a machine in a cabinet facing the window. This gave me a nice FLAT surface for attaching borders to a large quilt top. Less edges to catch on. Easier moving of the quilt top as the borders were applied.
You may not have seen this machine before, it’s a Wheeler,1950s, made in Japan. I had bought it from my friend Diane a few years back, and it is finally functional, and I brought it up here to give it a good work out.
I love how boxy he is!
Adding those last borders, see how they complete the pattern?

Big enough for the queen guest bed at the cabin!

Now for those of you who don’t WANT an H in your quilt – there WILL be an alternate quilt in this pattern. I am working on assembling the top for a baby quilt/wall quilt variation this weekend!
Oh, yes, these are fun!
These are the pinwheels I started sewing in my room at the Grand Hotel last week! They’ve been assembled, and sashings are going on! I’ll have to make a few more sashings, I’m just a bit short on what I need, but this should be a top before I leave for home tomorrow.
All I did was switch out the H bocks for pinwheels, and I love the look.
This pattern will include the queen sized H quilt, and the baby sized pinwheel quilt in one digital download pattern, but it’s going to be a bit before I get both quilts quilted, binding and labels on and pattern written, so please be patient with me. I leave for Illinois on Tuesday –I am going as fast as I can go. Look for this pattern as soon as I can get it done.
I decided to do this as a digital download as the blocks are odd sized so they won’t fit my Quiltmaker Column or 100 blocks issues. It takes too long to save it for a future book. So digital it will be.
And lest you think all I did was sew all day – there was a blissful 3 hour nap in the afternoon! ((I think I needed it.))
Sadie and I took a couple of short walks because it was incredibly windy – it even blew the Quiltville flag OFF the front porch and to the ground. But I did get to see these in bloom, and they weren’t in bloom the last time I was up here.
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
Words may say one thing, but tone of voice says more than words ever could. Be careful HOW you say something. Tone of voice can hurt or heal. What did yours do today?

Have a lovely Sunday, everyone!
