Week Update

After my productive mental health day on Monday, I was able to get quite a lot of handwork done this week. These are the wool felt blocks for Quiltmaker's March/April "Love Blooms Here" BOM.

I am all caught up and looking forward to the next magazine with the next blocks. I also worked on embroidering some blocks of a BOM quilt I inherited from my sister. I traced some more blocks to work on this week and prepared a Christmas tree skirt for hand quilting.

I realized today that tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day and my husband will want my shamrock door banner promptly removed on Tuesday. I dug through my bin of spring quilts and while I have several door banners that would work for spring, I did not have anything that was exclusively Easter. I combined some elements from other patterns I have and dug into my scrap bins and made this up today. I am pinning it this evening and plan on hand quilting it with perle cotton tonight and tomorrow night to hang up on Tuesday.
I have been working on some other things, but they are top secret as they are presents!


  1. So many lovely blocks :)
    Such an adorable Easter wallhanging!
    Thanks for linking up!

  2. I love the Easter banner! I love the egg and the bunny! Really cute!

  3. I love wool quilts! Your blocks look nice - what batting is it that you've used - was it for stability, or a different purpose? I'm intrigued! And impressed with your Easter banner turnover. :)

  4. Upside down heart shapes for trees. Unique and such a good idea. You got a lot done!

  5. So many cute projects! Love your little quilt to display today on your door. I really need to make a shamrock one for next year. Time to dig the Easter or Spring wall hangings out and put them up.

  6. Beautiful blocks and I really like the heart trees too! I remember you talking about your husband at Valentine's I'm sure the St Pat wallhanging is down! Thanks for sharing! Freemotion by the River Linky Party Tuesday
