Good Friday

It's Good Friday and for several reasons.  We made it to the Good Friday church service today which is always so moving.  And there were lots of people there.

I finished 3 little quilts this week and that is also good.

One is hanging on the wall. The applique center is a free pattern from Erin Russek at One Piece at a Time.

The other two will be displayed somewhere.  One is the ugly fabric challenge quilt and I was very happy to finish it.  It did not sing for me.  It didn't even hum.  I think the fabrics were all too muddy or dull for me.  I used the blue border and goldish orange binding to add some brightness.  This quilt will probably move to my closet and stay there.

This was the March challenge and here is the February challenge which was pieced last month but finished this week.  I like that the binding on the sides are one color and the ends are another color. Both were challenges from the Sentimental Quilter.

I enjoyed my trip to Primitive Gatherings and managed to find some great fabrics for a couple of upcoming projects.  Yea!!

Happy Easter.


  1. Very nice little finishes. I especially like the third one.
    I'm so jealous that you got to go to Primitive Gatherings! : )

  2. I couldn't bring myself to make an ugly fabric quilt... my sewing time is too valuable to me! Your February quilt challenge is so nice! Wasn't that a fun pattern to make? Love the fabric you purchased at PG!

  3. I am sure there is someone somewhere who would hear a song with that second little piece! If you put it away eventually the whimpering will get to you!!

  4. I like all the quilts even the one with the blue border. Nice finds from PG.
