Lazy Rainy Sunday

It rained and rained yesterday.....a warmish rain, felt more like october than january! But still, mighty wet.

The only sewing I got done was to put the borders on the orphan block quilt....it's done! It's also too big to get a pic laid out on the floor anywhere....until it is dry enough outside to take a pic on my fence...

But here is a close up of the border fabrics....you can see the red inner border that I used. It has little palmetto trees on it, which has meaning for me since the palmetto is the state tree of South Carolina, it is even shown on our car license plates....

The string quilt I am hand quilting is coming along...only 5 more blocks to finish and it is done. It's going to work with me today so hopefully I can get some stitches in between clients....



  1. as long as you don't have to use the orphan block quilt as a sail in a boat, all shall be well :-) I love the shape of the "k".

  2. This looks great--I agree the grouping/clumping of similar blocks makes a better quilt. I look forward to the full shot on your fence!

  3. Woohoo, congrats on getting that gorgeous top finished. hope you are able to get lots of hand quilting in.

  4. Oh Bonnie it is wonderful! I hope it quits raining now so we can see it all!!!!

  5. It;s beautiful. You have such talent and an artistic eye! Love the words, too.
