Getting close ....

Now that my Dresden Plate quilt is getting so close to being finished ..... just one more border to do ..... I have to find something to keep myself occupied during the upcoming Olympics starting Feb. 12. In this battered old trunk ....

.... are all my tops (with their backings). Which one should I hand quilt next? I have never had so many tops completed at any given time, so this will be difficult to decide. Oh, decisions, decisions ......


I do have a finish .... a pair of knee high socks. These were finished last winter and all that was needed to be done was weave in all yarn ends and those got done lickedy split and they are now keeping my toes toasty warm .

Enjoy your day!

I vote for quilting "Lover's Knot"...I fell in love with that one when you posted the tutorial some time ago!

The Dresden Plate is turning out lovely!!

Yippee for hand quilting!! It's my "therapy," and my favorite part of the process.

In stitches,
Teresa :o)

Ohhh, the eye candy!!!! So lovely to look at finished or not. I just knit my first pair of socks...toddler size. I'm so proud of myself and my MIL would have been too. When she was living she kept us all in socks, scarves and mittens. She wouldn't teach me how to do the heels her special way...it was buried with her...too bad. She claims it was the best heel she ever saw....

Pretty sock yarn! I would vote for the red and white quilt....you can cheer for Team Canada while you quilt it.

Wow would you look at that Dresden Plate! That's a stunning piece of work my friend. Amazing. What will you choose, what will you choose? Do you think of this in terms of which will be the most ease during the Games?

They are all lovely, it would be a hard decision.

I like the red and white...it's a Canadian colour after all and you can watch and cheer the team and quilt with love.
I love your trunk...excellent choice for putting quilts in finished or unfinished...doesn't matter.

The Dresden Plate is looking so good. I especially like the part plates you have used in the borders to form flowers.
Perhaps it's just as well there are Olympic Games so you can catch up on your hand quilting. They are all worthy and delightful so close your eyes and pick one.

Your Dresden is just gorgeous! If I said that before, that's okay, because it's worth saying again!

Im loving all the quilts you keep pulling out to post on your blog.

I will get around to making my thigh high socks one of these days.

Bunny said...

Oh my and you say I have patience, hand quilting is not for me although I have one I started about 8 years ago and still not done. LOL Love the Lovers knot too. Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comment.

Pretty socks.
I wonder which quilt you picked? The one on the rack is so pretty.

Suzie said...

They are all gorgeous!!!My favorite is "Lover's knot", it is a wonderful pattern!

Donna said...

I love the socks. I am going to find a tutorial one of these days soon and figure out what I was doing wrong when I tried it recently. It seemed I need another set of hands. Your quilt tops are beautiful.

Donna said...
