Goodbye June - Hello July!

I didn't get much hand work done during the month of June. Mostly because I burned my right hand (grabbing the wrong side of a curling iron) early on.
Happy to say - my hand healed beautifully due to LOTS of lidocaine, aloe & ice.

I did manage to complete 2 of my small 5" Dutch Treat blocks.

I also finished my Ben Biggs block for Month 5 and have Month 6 in progress.

Here's a peek at something new I'm adding to my Applique Repertoire....

This is just a preliminary sampling of fabrics that I've set aside for a special project. Dawn over at Collector with a Needle has a fabulous treasure called the Noah & Matilda Album quilt dated 1851.

She is graciously offering up the patterns for sale. I LOVE this quilt and look forward to recreating it using some of my favorite traditional red & green fabrics.

Wishing my U.S. blogging friends safe & happy Independence Day celebrations!

  3. I'm sorry to hear about your hand, it must have been very painful, thank God it is healing good so you can stitch. I love the Dutch Treat blocks. I tried one, and find it a little difficult, one needs to practice. BB is a beauty so is the Noah & Matilda Album quilt. You sure keep yourself busy.

  10. Yikes Doreen! I hope your hand feels much better soon. I can't imagine trying to do anything much less that beautiful applique with a hand injury.

    Hope you have a wonderful 4th!

  11. So happy to hear your hand is mending, Doreen. I'll bet it was frustrating not being able to do some hand sewing!
    The large quilt projects you dive into continue to intrigue me... I'm still in awe of the Benjamin Biggs quilt and now you show us Noah & Miltilda!
