A Blackbird Gathering

A lovely friend (thank you Linda!) had most of the blocks completed and realized she didn't love working with wool, so she sent it to me and I finally got some time to get the top assembled. Whoop! Whoop! It isn't as scrappy and primitive as Cheri's but I love it!! Thank you Cheri for your generosity!
My flowers bed is as free and humble as my quilts!
Last weekend we went to a local venue to see Paul Simon! It was really great! It just so happened the 2 concerts we planned on going to this summer happened in the same week!! The weather was great, the music was great and we were surrounded by a lot of fun people.

Love to you all and Happy Wednesday!

  6. I saved the patterns to make this wall hanging. Just not enough time for all I want to do. Between you and your friend, you have a good finish to the top. I like to pass on some of my UFO's at times and am amazed at how well they turn out with someone else's touch to take over and get them done.

  7. I forgot to mention that I did not like my first wool project either and decided I would not pursue working with wool any further. And you can see that I have done lots of wool projects so, with experience, things turn out better and what you may not like doing at first, turns out to be something you really like.

  8. Wow, love how the quilt came together. Great colors and fabrics. Paul Simon is one of my favorite singer/songwriters. I'm sure you had fun!

  10. What a great quilt you were given the opportunity to finish. It makes me smile. Love the log cabin setting blocks, and the blackbirds (I prefer not to think of them as crows) among the mix of colors.
    So cool to go to a Paul Simon concert! Would love that!

  11. Oh i can empathize with the wool thing--I don't like the "feel" of it...I have a bag full of wool pieces and a book that is looking for a home...hugs, Julierose

  18. I love the quilt! As to the flower garden, with all your quilting, trips and hiking, I can see why you don't have much time to work in it. The flowers are lovely as they are!
