Enjoying my day outside

It was a lovely day outside. After doing some yardwork, I decided to sit outside and sew. I took everything that I needed outside. I left my ironing board inside. The project that I worked on was my wagon wheel quilt. I have been working on it for about 5 years. I have even taken it apart twice. Here are some pictures. I played the rows of wheels on the deck and held them up with some cans from the cupboard. 😁😁  πŸŒΌπŸŒΈπŸŒ»

Display wall in the making

Yesterday my husband started to put my display wall for my quilts up. He would have finished it, but we didn't have enough of the foam board. I took advantage of what was available and pinned a quilt up. I admit, the pictures aren't the best, but oh well.

I am linking up with Kathy's Quilts. Slow Stitch Sunday.

Long half diamond

Here is my latest long half-diamond. I need to make 2 more. I have the fabric chosen for both of them. I found this civil war fabric at a local quilt store that is trying to survive. They emerged after Hancock's closed.
Today is the one day that I have to accomplish what I want. I don't know about you, but I have several things that I want to do. 1. Make another long half-diamond. 2. Work on my Red, White, and Blue quilt. 3. Work on my block of the month quilt.  4.Cook  a few meals to freeze. We shall see what I do get done. I am going to go get my friends at McDonald's and will work on my hexies. I hope that you who are reading this blog have an enjoyable day.

Plugging away

This Martha Washington Flower Garden quilt is coming along. I figured that I need 3 more of these "long, half-diamonds". They will go on the sides of the quilt. After that, I will need to add the "path" around it all. "Slowly but surely" is my motto.
