Last Night I Dreamt of Warm Tropical Breezes....

...and woke up to more snow.

Worked on my RRCB yesterday.   I got all the rows sewn together.  Hubby was very happy as he is always complaining about our present quilt not being big enough.  He can't wait for me to finish this one.

Here is the quilt on our abed now...


This is one of the quilts I made during my time up north.  It was originally a pattern for a wall quilt.  I made extra blocks and added additional borders.  The applique went fairly quick and I hand quilted it using pearl cotton and a bigger stitch. 

All of the fabrics used were homespun plaids, which are some of my favorite fabrics.  Although I haven't met a fabric I didn't like.  lol




So here is my RRCB top all sewn together.  Today  I am going to trim and add the green inner border.  Next will be the pieced final border.  I'm hoping to get that done this weekend.  I am in awe of all the quilters that have already gotten theirs done and in some cases quilted. 


So I am putting my Spaghetti sauce in the slow cooker, wearing my comfy clothes, and sitting down to a long but pleasant day of quilting.

Have a quilty day, Cat

Great job with the FNSI. That is a lot of applique - where do you get your pearl cotton?

I love the quilt you have on your bed now, what a glorious pattern! I love your RRCB too, like you I'm in awe of how much some folks get done.

I've been dreaming of tropical breezes too. Summer cannot come quickly enough!
