Good afternoon all , it is sunny and very cold here today and we are waiting for yet another storm to come to our area tomorrow , seems it happens on the weekends this year .
First off I want to share a finish , it has been a while since I have had any . This quilt I am about to share is also in my header but it is on the frames at the church being quilted , well during my absence they finished my quilt and I have since finished sewing down the binding which thankfully I had sewn on before taking it out to be quilted .
My pinwheel quilt , a collection of blocks from an exchange with the girls I quilt with on Tuesdays plus I added the center block which is actually meant to be a wall hanging but these little colourful pinwheels reminded me so much of whirligigs that I decided to do a garden theme . The pattern name is Market Angel incase you are interested by Nellie Holmes. Here is a close up of the center .
Now for the second part of my title , percolate , yes somethings need to percolate before being worked on again . This project was offered by Melody of the House on the Side of the Hill a few years back ,more than I want to admit :-0 The strange thing is I had almost finished it when it was set aside , all the applique pieces had been ironed on and most had been stitched down . So I am sure you want to see just what I am talking about .
It is really quite large and I think so pretty , I can't imagine why it has taken me so long to dig it out . I just have two letters left to applique and I need to add some details to the snowman plus I'd like to add a few flowers here and there . Thanks to Melody for this amazing pattern ,I can't wait to finish it now and since it is on my UFO list at the guild I do have an extra push to complete it ;-0
One last thing before I go , You know I love the birds , well last week I had the most amazing view of a hawk , I love these birds and don't often see them perched in a tree so I grabbed my camera and zoomed in as much as possible and this is what I got .
So I am off now and I thank you for stopping by this afternoon , enjoy your day doing something creative and fun , it will make your soul very happy .
