A Good Day For Stitchin'

It's cool and drizzly outside...

The wood burning stove is going...

A nice cup of tea in my new tea cup...

So I've stitched most of the day!! I needed a gift for a friend (she doesn't blog so I can safely share!!) and have been humming and hawing for a few days pondering what to do. I decided to make a quilt, but alas really don't know her tastes that well,  so wasn't sure. I asked her favorite color (that's a safe enough question don't you think! LOL) Turquoise! I knew just the thing - a quilt from blocks I won in a quilt guild drawing, some with a hint of turquoise! Rummaged through my scraps and stash and even dipped into my daughter's stash (she loves turquoise!!) and came up with this...


It measures about 67" x 85" which makes a nice size NAP quilt!

There was one block that was missed sized but had some cute, cute fabrics! Perfect for a doll quilt!

And there were even two blocks left over. I want to send them to whomever can use them! They are 12 inch blocks (finished) and I will include the pattern if the recipient desires to make more! Just email me (available on my profile) with your address and I will get them in the mail to you! (First come, first served).

Hope this finds each of you enjoying your day! Blessings and hugs!


  1. Looks like a nice, cozy day at your house! I could use one of those, but then I don't have a place for a fire so it wouldn't be the same.
    You created a great quilt for a turquoise lover! Nice work!

  2. Good evening, my talented friend! I had to smile when you said you were enjoying a cup of tea as I am enjoying a cup of coffee right now :)

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful quilt and squares with us. While I love to make little things I have always wanted to learn the technique of quilting. I've made only a handful and they were simple patterns. Can I come live with you for a month and you can teach me? {{smiles}}

    Have a blessed evening! Hugs!

  3. Beautiful work as always. May our Lord richly bless you for your giving. I could use some cool days to spend inside-but I love the sunshine. Sending love your way girl.

  4. It looks like the perfect gift for your friend, the turquoises together are so fresh and pretty. Sweet little block for a doll quilt too. I love that block, have always wanted to try it out!

  5. Oh how cosy it looks in front of your blazing fire. LOVE the lap quilt for your friend. The turquoise showcases the blocks perfectly. Love the pretty pink dolly quilt. Some sweet dolly is going to have the most pleasant of dreams under this pretty. May your week be filled with many moments of enjoying a cup of tea in your pretty new cup. So happy you love it.

  6. She will be delighted with that. Our wood burner is also on fire :-) Diane

  7. Such a pretty quilt top, your friend is sure to love this gift!
    Wonderful to see your wood burning stove going!
    I can almost smell the air and feel it's warmth.
    I hope you enjoy many relaxing tea sips with your beautiful new cup & saucer.
