Sew, Press, Cough, Sneeze

Well, the title says it all - you all know how precious the weekend is to those of us who work all week, and look forward to Saturday for sewing - I have been known to set my clock very early on Saturday just to make the day longer.........or to stay up all night (never really manage that)...

Instead I woke up with sore throat, sniffy nose, and terrible muscle aches...  So it was one of those 'nesting' days - a little sewing thrown in between naps and soup-making.  I will live.  

I do have a few things to show you.....  I started another linen wholecloth quilt.   This is almond-colored dupioni silk -  pardon the blue marking pen...  You can see I have done some of the detail work on the left inside the feathers.... 
Here is a better detail shot.  I love how the dupioni sews up. 


and here is a photo with the vintage hankie that will go on this piece.... this is quite old, and delicate. 

The center of the hankie is not in great shape;  I am looking for something creative to applique over it - we'll see...  so fun....


My blocks for "Sarah's Revival" by Sue Garman are starting to fill the wall - oh I do love the them all, each one is so graceful and beautiful.  
 And today I found these four-patches stuck on the corner of the table, and threw together a charity quilt - wow this is BRIGHT !!!!  egad...  maybe a couple of borders will calm it down!!  And don't look closely, my four-patches are not all going the right way, but I am NOT ripping... 
 Sewing seems to be delayed due to seat occupation.... 

Happy Sunday evening to everyone!

Each of your projects is so different and so wonderful! I hope you are feeling better soon, I prescribe a nap under a quilt.

Your appliqué is so beautiful. I think a dark brown would look pretty on the center of the hankie.

The whole cloth quilting is fascinating. I would love to hear more about that. And your red applique blocks are gooooorgeous. I LOVE applique and I never do it. I really need to sit down and do more of it. Happy Quilting.
