Show and Tell

Hi Friends!

I've been busy...

Do you notice that this picture is upside down?  Just keeping you on your toes!
This is the quilt for H2H (see the button in the side bar). I have the flimsy done...

and this is the flimsy done for the Project Linus Open House Challenge.  Am I done? Do I need borders on either of these? I'm thinking I'll need to quickly sew the strip quilt that is underneath first and take down the little triangles quilt so I can use my design wall to baste the two challenge quilts. Should have  been working when I was playing computer games. Now I'm up against two deadlines.
Let's see if I can finish them on time. Pink and Red needs to be done by May 4 and May 27 for the H2H quilt.  I'd better get back to work!!!!

For those of you praying for my Chrissy - Thank you and please keep up the good work.  She is back to chemo again. She had the first round last Tues. and is feeling better from that, but the side effects hit her already on this first time, and well, lets just say they are awful. The courage it takes to do this again is phenomenal, IMO!  I could not admire her more.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. You have been busy! The H2H quilt is so pretty! Red and Pink is awesome! I put a border or two of some kind on most all my quilts. Some of my borders are scraps from fabrics I have leftover from piecing the center. I think borders frame the quilts. Just my thoughts.
    I'm trying to finish up my H2H quilt this weekend or this week. I'm quilting it now. Deadlines stress me.
    I'm so sorry little Chrissy must go through chemo again. She continues to be in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Glad to hear some good news about Chrissy. I hope that the side effects get better.

  3. It certainly does take grit and it sounds as if Chrissy has a good supply of that. I pray for her whenever I come to visit you or when visiting Suzanne and you are there.

    Goodness, you certainly do stay busy! These quilts are wonderful and make me wonder how they were accomplished.

    1. Thank you, Rosa. I love that this is an international medium. So interesting to see notes from other countries.

  5. All my best to Chrissy. I hope the chemo does the trick.
    I would border them- it gives a better finish to the binding. Wonderful work you are doing. I am about to have my 2nd wallow in the craft room -I'm back from town with magnetic fastenings. :-)

    1. Thank you for Chrissy. She is taking more intense course of chemo this time, so hopefully...

      I'm intregued... what are the magnetic fastenings doings? Perhaps we will know soon????


  6. Beautiful red and pink quilt!

  7. Praying that those side affects will subside and that the chemo will do it's work.
    Am not a sewer but can see that you have been busy making great quilts Terri.

  8. I hope things improve for Chrissy. What a courageous battle she's waging.

    I'm not always a fan of borders. Sometimes they can overpower a quilt. It really depends. I might put a soft and narrow border on the first and leave the second borderless; it's awesome as is.


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love the feedback, and getting to know you.
