Today's progress on the Heart of Roses

These are photos of the Heart of Roses quilt center. I am thrilled with the way it is turning out. Holy cow it has been a lot of work but well worth it so far. I can't wait to be able to give it to Joe Joe, Sharon's husband.

Heart of Roses

Well, I pinned the last of Sharon's quilts onto the long arm today. This quilt is called, "Heart of Roses" and is all hand appliqued. Sharon and I first saw this quilt in Lancaster and we both bought the patten book. Sharon has made so many of these. She was a master at needle turn applique. The reason it is the last to be pinned on was because I was so worried about doing this quilt justice on the long arm. Sharon would have hand quilted this quilt and I want to honor her with the best quilting I can do.

Well, I think she would have been happy with it so far. I am really proud of how it looks so far.

Been a while I see

Gosh, where did the month go? Life here has been really busy. With the lovely spring weather we have been having I have been riding, a lot. I joined a local riding group and they have organized rides each weekend. This ride was at Eagles Mere PA, we rode 16-18 miles in the state park.

Bear is the Paint
Bear's butt is on the far left.

I have also been quilting like crazy. I uploaded new photos onto the website
click on quilts for sale to view some of them.
I hope your month has gone well also and that you have gotten a chance to sew.
Peaceful Piecing,
