Rainy Weekend = Lots of Quilting

Cool and and wet here in Nebraska this long holiday weekend. I have been in the sewing room alot. I finished the little vintage embroidery block (pattern from Liberty Homestead) doll quilt. I have not made prairie points in so long I almost did not remember how. It was a good oportunity to use Aunt Gracie conversation prints.

The rest of the weekend I worked on building Home Tweet Home blocks (McKenna Ryan)

Maybe it will keep raining tomorrow and I can work on the little four patches to go inbetween the applique blocks.

If not I will have to go outside and work on this...I don't care how we prep the pool in the fall, in the spring it is always green. The black spot is a group of leaves that we managed to drop in the pool while removing the cover. Lots of vacuuming, pool chemicals, more vacuuming, and cold wet clothes.

Happy Stitching,



  1. Your McKenna blocks are wonderful!! Did you buy a kit in order to get the great fabrics?

    It is a lot of work maintaining a pool which is why I'm more a run through the sprinkler kind of gal, but once you have it cleaned out you will have hours of fun in it :0)


  2. OH, such lovely blocks and what a beautiful it will be when all finished.

  3. I love the little vintage quilt. The prairie points are such a great finish!

  4. the cwb quilt is just amazing
    love these birdhouse blocks, I have always loved birdhouses
    thanks for sharing

  5. Those birdhouse blocks are simply amazing. They look like a lot of work. At least you don't have to repeat that work every summer! Swimming pools require so much upkeep but they are useful in 90 degree heat!
