That’s what I was doing yesterday – auditioning fabrics for the Pickled Ladies edges as the Pickled Ladies centre is almost together now. It will be larger than it appears in this photo as I decided to add more rows … Continue reading
Once again, a dark Pickled Lady. A medium one. And a light one. There is one more light one left to make. Then some batting gets taped to the wall so I can sort out the placement and work begins … Continue reading
A very dark one. A medium one. And a very light one. Four more to go and I’ll be finished with these. I think in a way I’ll be sad to finish making the little pickled clamshells for this quilt … Continue reading
While working on the pieced border, I decided that more of the ladies needed to join the party. A few minutes of fussy cutting/printing and I had all I needed for the extra Pickled Ladies. First up is this pair. … Continue reading
So far, so good. I’m sticking to my plan and working on one of the elements for the Pickled Ladies borders. I’m anxious to get the Pickled Ladies top finished. These NYB blocks are very fast to piece so I’m … Continue reading
There’s going to be a lot of printing on fabric going on this weekend. This group of fabrics is for one project. While this is for another. Window templates have been made as a bit of fussy cutting/printing is involved. … Continue reading
Since the red and white quilt top was finished, I’ve felt almost lost and just flitted from project to project but nothing really captured my interest. That changed last night. I decided that Pickled Ladies is the next project up … Continue reading
… is definitely in my future. Remember the Joseph’s Coat shabby chic project? It feels like forever since I’ve worked with my favourite shabby chic fabrics, so once the red and white top is done it will be the shabby … Continue reading
A new Pickled Lady is ready to join the bevy of beauties. When I started putting the original Pickled Ladies together, I realized I wanted it to finish larger. So more florals were fussy cut/printed and more of the blocks have been and are being made as well as the partial blocks to square it up.
While I am still working on the red and white Feathered Star/Sunflower quilt, the Pickled Ladies are going to get equal time. As will Scrappy Star. In fact, Scrappy Star may need only a couple more evenings of work until it’s finished. So I may have three tops finished in relatively quick succession.
Pressing of the latest Pickled Lady took only a second and grading the seams took not much longer. This one is now ready to add to the group.
Baxter has completely taken over the blue and white quilt on the couch. I don’t think he could get more relaxed!
The first of the next three that are joining the group. Every time I finish one, I think it’s my favourite and then I make the next and think it is and then … well, you get the picture.
The second of the trio.
And the third.
Another 15 to go and they will all be done and ready to add to the others. Then I’ll start with the half Pickled Ladies that will go along the edges and then the border(s). I’m still undecided about how many borders it’s going to have.
Baxter likes to “hide” beneath things. When he’s found, his eyes get so big!
