A Beautiful Finish

I just love this little quilt!  This is Val Laird’s BOM for this year.   You can go to her blog and scroll down the the individual posts.

I had most of it assembled after the 8th block, and even had the binding waiting.  As soon as I returned from vacation, stitching the final block was my top priority.  On a few of the blocks, I appliqued one of the larger designs rather than embroidering it.  Can’t wait to get this one hung.

A couple of years ago, I was gifted an orphan block – a basket.  It got buried in some fabric, and I unearthed it in January when I was sorting my scraps.  It’s now a spring wall hanging.

oops – I still need to give the bunny an eye!  I worked on this last week while sewing with a friend. 

Today was a beautiful day, so DH and I had a play date.  We went for a short hike on the Appalachian Trail.  That wasn’t our plan when we left the house so I didn’t have my hiking boots, and my feet paid the price.  It felt so good to be outdoors though!  I don’t like to hike when it’s hot out, so we’ll start doing more as it cools down.

Back to stitching now . . . . Sunny

  3. What wonderful finishes. Now that it's getting cooler, a hike does sound a lot more enjoyable. Although I doubt if the hiking trails here can compete with yours. ;-)

  6. You did so good getting Val's BOM finished. And it's so pretty. What a joy to have hanging in your house. The bunny basket is adorable. I like the fabric you used for a border and binding. I think I would use a button for the eye. I saw your posts on facebook and wondered what AT was! I figured the T was for Trail, now I know what the A is for. Very pretty place to go walking.
