Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Design Wall Monday, Feb.2, 2015

I'm still working on my Texas Chain quilt, which is another Judy Martin quilt. I'm not sure, off the top of my head, what book it's from, and I'm too lazy to go upstairs to the studio to find out. It's slowly coming together, little bits at a time. It has to go directly from the design wall, to the sewing machine, so I only work on it when I'm upstairs. It's rather amazing how much it shrinks up, once the seams are sewn.
 I would have stayed up stairs and done some more on this, but it's really cold out side, and the heater in the studio is having a hard time keeping up, and my poor toesies are getting cold, even with two pairs of socks, one of them wool hand knit, and a pair of warm slippers. I guess there's a limit to what can be expected from a room built into a garage, which is what my studio is. I finished a quilt today, binding included, but I haven't gotten a picture of it yet. that's on my to-do list for tomorrow. In the meantime tonight, I'm going to do some more hand stitching on my current obsession, after I link up to Judy's Design Wall Monday and also to Love Laugh Quilt's Monday Makings.

  3. So many small pieces - it is a labor of love. I am sure it will be be beautiful, warm and cozy quilt!!!

  4. You sure have a lot of patience continuing to work on something so intricate. It's looking better and better and I believe it will be stunning when finished!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
