The only thing for certain
is there will be plenty of curve balls
for the remainder of 2020,
so when you have a quilt finish
it's reason to celebrate.
"The Lewis Coverlet",
pattern by Susan Smith
I started this quilt over a year ago
as a BOM from
Homestead Hearth quilt shop.
I thought it would be fun to receive
a bundle of fabric each month to
make this delightful medallion.
It is the perfect size to be a topper.
73" x 73"
The applique was done the
needle turn method and the
stripe fabric made fun stems.
Even these squares were appliqued
rather than constructed as a pieced border.
I had my LMQ, Kathy,
quilt a variation of a clam shell design overall.
The quilting needed to be as light
as the quilt design.
Karen, of Log Cabin Quilter,
is also working on this quilt.
Take a look at how she's putting
her fabrics together.
Running Man and I left home for a few days.
We went to Manitou Springs
to the west of Colorado Springs.
It was nice to escape the smoke and ash
of the fire still burning west of Fort Collins.
We stayed at the lovely historic hotel
The Cliff House.
tucked in the mountains
at the base of Pikes Peak.
Enjoying the change of scenery
and having a quilt finish
was just what I needed.
Hopefully, you've recently had a
reason to celebrate too.
Until Next Time-
