Just a Little Quilting

I haven't worked on much over the past week that I can share.

I quilted and bound Charlene's quilt over the weekend. The quilting design is called JK Celtic.

Here are a few more pictures of Cindy's quilt that I shared last week. I'm still marveling over how precise and flat her piecing is.  

I completed this month's clue for the Meadow Mist mystery quilt.  It's definitely not too late to join in.  You get one clue per month, which is very manageable. The first picture is this month's clue and the second picture is last month and this month.

I don't think I've shared my completed Lucky Charm quilt.  Here it is.  I'm quite happy with how it turned out.  This was a kit from Primrose Cottage on Etsy.  It's quilted with Pumpkin Seed.
Switching over to gardening, I think my baby pineapple is dying.  :(  It does not look good. The stem holding it up is dying and the pineapple itself has changed color. I haven't found much information online on growing pineapples in pots, so I'm not sure what we should have done differently.

We had a frost the other night, so we brought in the other two pineapple plants that we started a while ago.  I had what I expect is the last garden harvest of lettuce.  My fall crop has struggled and there was enough for one small salad.  There are still a few green tomatoes out there, so I'll need to bring those in to ripen.  We do have part of our potato crops that can be harvested, and two small onions left.  Oh, and my husband never harvested the majority of his banana peppers. I don't think I ever shared our first onion harvest, so enjoy these lovelies.  :D (Yup, that's a standard paring knife for scale.)

Finally, a monarch update.  About half of the chrysalises we found have hatched and the other half did not make it.  It's more than we've had in the last few years, so we are pleased to have hosted at least a few.

Until next week--thanks for reading!

  1. Both of your customer quilts came out fantastic! Great pairings of quilting design to piecing. And I'm in awe of how precisely your orange peel quilting aligns with your piecing seams. That shows how skilled you are at patchwork as well as at quilting! It looks like you and your IQ are bonding nicely!

  2. Hi Anne-Marie! Wow - another beautiful quilting design in the Celtic one. It sure is fitting on that lovely Kelly green quilt. Your blocks for the mystery QAL are so pretty as is your Lucky Charm quilt. I have tried quilting the Pumpkin Seed design but I definitely need more practice. Take care. ~smile~ Roseanne
