Quilts and Picnics


The quilt I’m currently working on is the largest I’ve ever spray basted. It’s 80″ x 96″ which also makes it the largest quilt I’ve ever quilted on my Baby Lock Tiara III.

3 of 12 blocks quilted, progress! The process of basting a large quilt was a bit challenging.

Sunday, my grand daughter, hubby and I had a little picnic on the picnic quilt she designed.

Fresh fruit, cheese & crackers, chips, home made cookies & OJ. Sweet times with my grand daughter!

Last to-do list:

  1. Quilt Fence Rail Star quilt for nephew’s September birthday. ✔️ A work in progress!
  2. If time allows, create thank-you postcards. ✗ Didn’t get to these this week. I’ll get back to the postcards once I finish the Fence Rail Star quilt.
To-Do List:
  1. Got to stay focused on the Fence Rail Star quilt!

Linking to To-Do Tuesday hosted by Home Sewn by Us. Christine of Sew All the Things has handed over the link up party To-Do Tuesday to Sue & Roseann of Home Sewn by Us. I met and followed Christine in the blogging world before she started hosting To-Do Tuesday 5 years ago. I will miss her weekly posts. Cheers to Christine and her new adventures, and Cheers to Sue & Roseann as they take on hosting the To-Do Tuesday party!

    Hello! Thank you so much for linking up today. I will miss Christine greatly. She has been such a good friend and a good inspiration in many areas. Isn’t spending time with your granddaughter just the best?! That picnic lunch looks very much fun and what a pretty quilt she designed. I’ll check out her post for more information. It looks like you’re doing a good job quilting that quilt top with your Tiara. You’ve still got a few weeks before September – you’ll make it! ~smile~ Roseanne

    Such a sweet picture of you, your granddaughter and her quilt! My daughter used to quilt on her Bernina 350 and now on her Bernina 880 and loves spray basting! My hat is off to all who quilt on their domestic machines! Congratulations!
