Let's Catch-up!


Sharing with you today two finishes!  These are called, "Speck" from Carrie Nelson's Little Bites pattern line.
Rather than using those binding clips I simply use a single pin to hold down my binding just inches from where I stitch.  I simply move this single pin down as I work my way around the quilt top.
I've quilted the borders and sashing on the longarm and decided to big stitch or primitive stitch pearl cotton around the blocks...still in the works.
In the past weeks I won two different giveaways!  Thank you to Norma of Timeless Traditions for her design Woodland Tree Skirt.  Also thank you Julie of JulieKQuilts blog for having two Nickel Quilts books and giving away her extra!
This Is a glimpse of Swoon by Thimbleblossoms.  Bari's quilt, not mine. (Dang!).  It's on it's way back to her to bind and gift to her son and future daughter-in-love's wedding.
Still waiting for wedding pictures to share!  Meanwhile I snagged this one from Instagram.  My younger son and his gal.

Speaking of Instagram, I've learned more and more bloggers using it than posting to their blogs. You can find me there too.

LOVE this feather - looks beautiful on the quilt - do you have the pattern name? I'd love to snag that one!

Love those deep, rich colors in your Schnibbles!
That prim style quilt looks great. Hope you'll share a full view when finished.
Lovely feather quilting--freehand?
Handsome looking couple there, Mary! : )

Beautiful quilting and good to see you back on the long arm again, you always inspire me with your quilt designs. Way too much new media to keep up with it all, lol.

Such beautiful quilts. I worry that people will get so caught up in Pinterest, Instagram, etc. that they will quit blogging. I'd be very upset if they did! Just saying.

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

I do use pinterest but I don't instagram or tweet - just no interest - I will keep blogging.
love all the photos that you show!

JudyCinNC said...

I will keep commenting as long as you blog - as for me and our house, we do not use FaceBook, Twitter,Instagram or Pinterest. Our choice not to be so connected to the universe. Sorry ... As always your quilting is the wonderful icing on any quilt because you do such beautiful work.
Love your Little Bites quilts. So Mary!!!! Hugs from Judy C in NC

I still love visiting blogs~ haven't even been interested in instagram. Maybe that is why I'm missing some of my fave bloggers~? Love your little quilts~ and the big stitching is going to look really perfect. Have a good day!

Nicole said...

I love those Speck quilts and must make them! How adorable. I also need to send you several of my Schnibbles quilts for quilting. You do a much better job than I do! I like Instagram, but have trouble posting to it. I need techo help!

Carol said...

Nice quilting as always. Nice pic of your son too.

Jeanna said...

Lovely quilts Mary. Yes, I stalk you on Instagram too :)

Lynn said...

It's really amazing the beauty you work on a quilt top.
Looking forward to the wedding pictures.
Do what do you think, are we finished with winter yet? This is the south, it's supposed to be warmer, right?

Beautiful quilting on both pieces as always. I'm on Instagram as well but to be honest, I forget all about it at times. I think I check it once every 2 weeks. I'm sure I'm missing a lot.

Sue said...

What a CUTE couple they make :-D

Love the quilting on your Scnibbles. I made that same little quilt with CHOCOLAT by Moda.

That Swoon quilt is GORGEOUS! Maybe one day you can quilting that on one of my quilts :-D

Needled Mom said...

Your Schnibbles looks so pretty, Mary and I love the Swoon. You could easily send that one to my house.

The photo of the kids is so sweet. I have never gotten into the Instagram business so I hope you do not quit blogging.

Bari Jo said...

Love the quilting you did for my quilt! I am stalking the postman tomorrow for it! THANK YOU! SO excited to finish it and gift it to them! I love the primitive stitching also on your quilt! And the picture was so great of your son and his girlfriend! :O) I've enjoyed seeing you on IG and your blog! I bet some days are so busy, it's hard to blog - but with IG, you can post a quick shot - eye candy for us!

andsewon said...

Lovely quilts. Good luck with your stitching. Still quilting my basket quilt. I can not keep up with all the media outlets. Lucky to read blogs as I do! Pintrest is addicting. So much eye candy! Lovely couple too!

Cheryl said...

Beautiful couple...congratulations! And I like the big stitch quilting you chose. I wondered where everyone in blogland was disappearing to.

Lori said...

The quilting is lovely!
Gorgeous photo of the newlyweds.

Karen said...

My favorite of the two Schnibbles is the one with the dark border.

Loris said...

Love,love,love you Little Bites!
Enjoy those sweet gifts from Julie and Norma. I love that tree skirt. I'm going to get Norma's snowman row quilt done someday :-)
I am hanging in there with Mom. I'm going to take some time off work to be free to stay with her. She's weak but otherwise we are able to keep her pretty comfortable. Loves having her daughters with her.

Tilda H said...

Love it all! Can you tell me which fabrics you used for the speck quilts? Thank you!

Valerie Z said...

Love the quilts! The quilting designs are wonderful! I don't understand Instagram or have it, (I don't think) but I do love blogs! Your son looks very handsome! Looking forward to the wedding photos! Wishing you a wonderful day today, and always!
