I have not posted for over two years and am determined to update this blog with my quilting journey more regularly this year. I have continued to stitch & quilt over the past two years, but have been so busy with work & other activities that I have not maintained the blog. This is a pity as it was a great way for me to see what I have accomplished and to keep a record of these achievements.
I have been working on this applique over the last year

I will post some photos of these two years over the next few entries.

These photos are of a hand-stitched applique that I have been sewing over the past year.
If I can work on it some more this week I should finish it soon

I am calling the quilt "The Edith Lily Quilt" after my niece.

The centre & border designs are from Aunt Millie's Garden by Piece O'Cake Designs.

The outer corners are my interpretation of a traditional pattern using Marti Michell Carolina Lily templates.

Joseph's Coat Quilt Along
I have enjoyed the hand sewing and have continued with my other hand sew project:  the Joseph's Coat Quilt Along.

I am continuing to make blocks for this but am also
beginning to join them together so that I can understand the construction and work out how big I want it to be.
