Good intentions

I believe at any given time the road to a finished quilt is filled with good intentions.... This is the quilt that's on my bed now:

It's an Endless Chain quilt that I made [completed] in 2002, the pattern came from an Australian Patchwork & Quilting magazine.  I wasn't in any particular hurry to get it pieced, I believe it might have taken 12-18 months to finish, but I like the results.  It was paper foundation pieced, a very scrap-happy quilt!  

This is the quilt that I wanted to have on my bed now:

Do you see the problem??  I received some of these blocks in a group exchange when I was a member of About.com, some are the result of a Fons & Porter workshop series my guild had a few years ago.  Every December I tell myself that by next December I'll have a Christmas quilt on my bed....  Good intentions.

Yesterday was sunny, but windy and c-o-l-d!  The temperature was in the 30's and they say there were snow flurries off and on, but I didn't see any - I was busy working.  When I work at home sometimes I get busy and don't get up often enough and move around, so by the end of the day I'm ty-yerd

Before I say goodbye I want to publicly thank Yetunde (Sistah Stitch A Lot), Wanda (Exuberant Color), and Nancy (Patchwork Penguin) for helping me get my blog up and rolling - thanks for being there, ladies!!  I couldn't have done it without you.

Sew forth and sew on until later...



  1. Linda, I LOVE the quilt you currently have on your bed!!! Gorgeous!

  2. Hi Linda, I'm Carol. I came by the first day I read Sistah's blog and found out your were here, but I did not have time enough to post a comment. I like what you're doing and look forward to visiting again. Will add you to my blogs I follow list and hope you do the same so we can get acquainted.

  3. My pile of Christmas embroideries on denim were just like your pile of red and green blocks. Every year I had good intentions but never made the quilt. Mine isn't bed size but it's going to be completed this year. I did some of those embroideries 10 years ago so there is always hope of a finish.
    I was glad to help and am glad you are 'up and running' now.

  4. This is a great quilt, one on my list of things to do!
