Progress in 2011

Well I finally have the top of the RRCB borders yet though.  I don't have a pic but will post with a picture once I have the borders on!! I haven't actually taken the time to iron the seams, it will be a monumental task!!  RRCB was a lot of fun to work on, and I amazed myself for keeping up as well as I did!  I am usually not a finisher.....a starter yes!! 

I have had a chance to work a little on my Wild Pomegranate Quilt.  So far I have 5 of the 16 applique blocks complete.  I truly enjoy hand applique.  I can sit and work on it for hours it seems!!

Above is a picture of 4 of the blocks in a possible layout!!  My color in the picture doesn't do it justice.  It has beautiful dusty rose backgrounds and grey sage greens with deep reds and some taupe and pinks!!

This little cutie is one if many that I received in the mail from my dear friend Heather over at Creative Confessions (  I love them, she had them made especially for moi!!  Thanks a bunch Heather :)

Once again I have tackled the sewing room!!  I keep attempting to organize the clutter....its coming I guess!!  I managed to clean out two more bags of scraps for my niece and her friend.  They use them to make quilts to donate to shelters and hospitals.  I really don't know where these scraps keeps coming from, but they are happy I keep finding more!!

Happy Stitching

  3. Sorry spelling error above! LOL. I love your pomegranate block. The colors are lovely.

  4. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! I love the warm brown in your RRCB quilt! Making this quilt was a real labor of love, it had to be with all the pieces it had in it, LOL
    I love your applique! I enjoy doing it also and have a couple of projects that are on going and will be for years if I don't concentrate on them. LOL Happy Quilting!

  5. Beautiful applique ... looking forward to seeing more of those blocks!

  6. Great job finishing Cindy. You finish far more than you think. Love the labels Heather sent you-that was really thoughtful of her. I can hardly wait to get on with my pomegranate quilt but I cannot start it until I finish my samples for Tiny Treasures Group Sigh! I loved the colours in yours-not sure what direction to go in myself-maybe I'll be a bit of a copycat.
