Sunday Afternoon Sewing

I have managed to get a couple hours work on Roseville Album. I am working on prepping the top border with the house. My sewing room becomes a complete wreck when I assemble a Roseville block, light box and fusible material, pencils, scissors (no matter how many scissors and pencils are laying around I can never lay my hands on one) on side of the sewing room, fabric all over the other side, and ironing board and cutting table covered with block parts. I ended up removing the blue kitty and replacing him with the orange stripe. Added a couple trees and animals and that is probably enough for a bit while I machine applique what I have done so far on this block. I have a little zip lock baggie started with little scraps for the numerous circles on the quilt. I think I am going to work on the larger appliques on the quilt first and then use the left overs for the smaller leaves, circles, etc.

It is now Sunday afternoon and I have been working a little on the long arm machine quilting a couple of donation quilts for the local hospice care center. My sweet daughter, Beth, is keeping me company working on her crochet baby hats at the cutting tables while I quilt.
A good Sunday afternoon to you all...


  1. Oh my! I love your Roseville block!! Such terrific fabrci you've chose.
    Love the red and white quilt on the machine too. That is one of my favorite color combinations.

  2. Oooo love your fabric choices!! Waiting to do leaves and circles is a great idea. I'll have to remember that when I get started on mine :0)

    I love the charity quilt, it's so refreshing seeing a donated quilt that is not some boring pattern and color :0)


  3. Your RA panel is STUNNING, Cheri!!! : ) I LOVE the tent fabric you chose for the house and the spotted roof too!!! Actually, I REALLY like ALL of your fabric selections and color choices. Thanks for sharing. Hey, is this over on the GA blog...?!?!?!
