Catching Up in the New Year

 It's frigid today and after a morning of "chores" on the computer, I can now sit with a quilt on my lap while I hand quilt. The current quilt is a variation on the Beyond The Cherry Tree quilt (or as I like to call my version - Way Beyond The Cherry Tree). The pattern is an antique reproduction from Sentimental Stitches - which I took much liberty with.  The last applique block is now in my hoop. Then, it will be the sashing and the border. Once I get to this part I'm under the delusion I am almost done. Alas, the border is vast. 

Unfortunately, this quilt won't be finished before my next shipment of "secret fabric" is delivered and this will be put away so I can make some top-secret quilts and such. Much fun!!

AND - Newport fabric should be arriving in shops next month. This gives me another chance to let you know I have a few openings for the Blue Pear Block of the Month and pre-orders of half yard bundles.

Also, just a heads up that Belle Isle in the Minick and Simpson shop is almost gone. Right now there is limited yardage and 2 Regent Street kits,

This kit has the large pink floral as the background fabric - as shown in the first photo.

and lastly, 1 Donwell Abbey kit - the small one with the pink background.  And 1 kit of the large Donwell Abbey - with the white background

Keep safe
