Sewing week-end....

Saturday was the perfect day to sew, (rainy and a tad chilly), and bake, so I did both....
I made pies.... Everyone in the family has a different favourite pie so I made some to tickle every one's fancy. Apple, cherry, lemon meringue and chocolate cream are the choices for the family dinner tonight.

Then it was off to the sewing room where I had started with the "Old Primrose Inn" jelly roll and after carefully and regretfully unrolling it... I had decided to go back to my block in the ....

"Faith in Migration" quilt andmade these.....

This fabric is very different than what I usually am use to using, so, as I was working with it I almost developed a permanent frown ):
I came up with this ensemble. Keeping with the Migration trend I used flying geese in between the blocks.

Finished it looks like this.....

You know when you make a project and you have someone in mind in which that project would be perfect for? That was the case with this quilt.

I think there was a Divine intervention because there were no snags in making this project. (After working on my "Starlight Express"; this was a piece of cake or should I say pie?)

I have a friend who is a nun and these colors would be perfect for her. A while back she told me she never owned a quilt.. In my book that cannot be!!! Agnes will do her magic and I will happily deliver this quilt to my friend !

  10. I think it turned out very sweet but I know what you mean about working with colors that don't blow your skirt up. I did that last October and never thought I would get through it!
