Slow Sunday

 Despite it being a slow Sunday, I managed a finish! This is a Cheri Payne design called Saltbox Houses. I had made some of the companion quilts that go with the design, so when she posted the pattern on her Facebook group I decided to make this one too.  It is a complete freebie as everything came from my stash.
 Unfortunately, I need to put my snowmen quilts away and get my spring projects hung, but it will be up next winter for sure. I hand quilted it and got the binding done today for Slow Sunday Stitching
I made four more teal RSC17 blocks yesterday. These blocks are 9 inches finished and make a gorgeous rainbow design.
Speaking of rainbow designs, I finished my curved log cabin this week. It has been very windy, so I have not been able to get any good pictures yet. Here is an up close of the teal/aqua block. I think I will make some more blocks for the RSC17 and make a quilt for myself with them...
I will be spending the evening embroidering a couple of these blocks. They will be part of a couple of retirement quilts for some teachers that are retiring at the end of this school year.

I leave for Denver on Wednesday morning for a work meeting. I hope to check out a quilt shop near the hotel we are staying at and get to Home Goods. If weather permits, I am going to spend the rest of the weekend with my college roommate. Have a great week!


  1. You sure are a busy soul! Looking forward to the picture of the full quilt!

  2. Your Saltbox quilt is adorable--love it! Have a great trip!

  3. A super cute finish! Have fun in Denver.

  4. Great finish on the Saltbox Houses. And the hand quilting looks great, too.
    It will be interesting to see all your RSC blocks together. great colours.
    The serpentine quilting on your curved log cabin is very effective.

  5. The saltbox houses all in blues is a good finish. Very wintery looking and you know I love Cheri designs.

  6. Congrats on the finishes.. love that the winter houses quilt was made totally from stash :)
    Enjoy your stitching!

  7. I love the saltbox houses! And more teal, a finish and embroidery too. I don't think that you sleep :)
