Keeping Busy

The Jamestown Landing quilt top (Bonnie Hunter pattern) is finished.  It is in the to-be-sandwiched-and-quilted pile. I think this quilt will stay with us. We both loves the colors and it will look great on the new couch when it arrives for our front room.

Joy at The Joyful Quilter had a guest blogger, Connie, who made a table topper inspired by a pattern for a quarter log cabin quilt. I really liked the pattern and went hunting at Confessions of a Fabric Addict and found a picture of her beautiful quilt in blues in a March 28, 2021 post. (For some reason, I can't give you the direct link??!) She gives credit for the idea to Christina Cameli. I eventually found the pattern on Christina Cameli's blog. Here is my first block.

While on the hunt at Confessions of a Quilt Addict, I came across a pattern for Supernova and I loved it - of course it was in orange and white. I wanted to do something in reds. And here is my finished Supernova quilt top. It is 100 half square triangles (each finished at 6") - very quick and super easy. 

I've spent some time with a project using some hand dyed fabrics I've had for a few years. I think I want to add some yellow sashing and I don't seem to have enough of the right color in my stash. So this will wait until I've had a chance to do some shopping.

And I've finished knitting the pieces for an afghan, Building in Color by Michelle Hunter. The ten strips are now blocked and ready to be put together; then I can knit the borders.

I did stipple a quilt and am sewing down the binding. I'll show you when it is done. I don't have any other quilts pinned and I'm not sure when I'll be able to pin any - I'm working on that. 

Keeping busy helps me deal with the pain. Less than 4 months until the back surgery gets scheduled, not that I'm counting...


  1. Beautiful projects, Jeanne!! I sent Connie a link to this post. Thanks for the shout out!

  2. You sure have been busy stitching! Such bright and cheerful quilts you have going. Jamestown Landing is stunning. I can see why that one will live with you.

  3. Jamestown landing is pretty. How do you put the afghan pieces together? (can you tell I don't do yarn things).
