Hollyhock Quiltsa stitch in dyeMy Blog by Eleanor Burns « Eleanor Burns – Strip QuilterMy son Orion has been after me for months to start a blog but since I had no idea of what a “blog” was, I was reluctant. I saw the movie “Julie & Julia” and finally understood what it meant to “blog”. This is my very first one so please bear with me, I’m not sure what to write about so I may ramble. For so many years my whole life has revolved around quilting and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I love the creative process and figuring out how to make things easier. It is a real learning experience and I am loving every minute of it. Orion just gave me my calendar for the first part of the new year and I am already overwhelmed! I enjoy staying close to home a lot more these days so I can be with my 2 grandchildren. Guess I better get back to work. Happy quilting, enjoy the ride!
Blackbird Designs - One stitch at a timeDresden Plate QuiltingIt has been a busy week (3 days of volunteering). I am hoping to finish machine quilting the Dresden Plate quilt on Saturday. There are 12 feathered wreathes all quilted and the scalloped edge around the Dresden Plates. I am working on the background filler now (not such a classic style - for contrast). I am using wool batting for this quilt. The book I won from Wendy at Inky Threads came this week. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
