Quilting on the Porch

Hello All!
Happy Monday!
Yesterday was a gorgeous day in our area. It was so lovely, I found myself on my front porch with a cup of tea, quilting in the morning sun!
That was pure pleasure!
I was counting my blessings right along with my stitches!

I am only just learning to quilt, inspired entirely by Frieda Oxenham, and I am totally loving it. Frieda's quilts are like fabric candy!
Check out her blog and see the delicious colors she works with,
she even sews lovely beads on her designs!
When I saw there was a beginners class at a nearby sewing shop, I signed up to make a sampler quilt. I did not pick traditional fabric though, a little more Asian,with some Batik thrown in!

I am loving the reds, pinks, and greens.

I am learning to hand applique.....patience is needed!
See the script fabric, it says lovely things about life and friendship.

There are 12 squares in this pattern, so you can try out 12 different block patterns.

"Whirling Geese"

"Four Patch Squares"

In my last post I announced my Birthday Gratitude Giveaway! Follow the link to leave a comment if you would like to enter to win this lovely tea for one!

May you all have a joyful and creative week.
Hugs,
Terri

Hi Terry! LOVE the colors you are working with!! I also really like the script fabric...how fun to use a non traditional print! I have some UFO's in the closet. I stopped quilting when I started sewing for my daughter and scrapbooking, just cannot do it all. Going to have to eek out some quilting time someday soon. I have fabric waiting. Looks like you had a wonderful morning. :)

Marjanne said...

My mother used to quilt a lot, sweet memories for me... your work is beautiful!! And the fabrics are so nice, et voilà: an other addiction!

Frideborg said...

Terri, you paint a picture of a beautiful morning - a memory to treasure when you use your quilt. I love sewing and don't do it often enough these days. I did do some mending last night and it is such a rhythmic activity it feels good! Love the colours you have chosen and the script fabric is wonderful.

Have a happy day.

Terri, Your quilt looks lovely - I love the colors and fabric choice.
I wish it was warm enough to sit outside on the porch here in my neck of the woods.

Hugs,
Penny

Terri, your quilt is very lovely...I've never had the nerve to try quilting - too much math, I think.

The fabrics are wonderful and eye pleasing. Hand stitching does quiet the soul. It's nice to slow down and enjoy the day. It sounds like it was a gorgeous morning. I'm glad for you.

Ta~ta for now,
Marianne

Claudia said...

You're doing a great job, Terri! I used to quilt quite a bit and still have to finish 2 quilt tops!

Hi Terri -

Love the colors you've chosen for your quilt. I need to get out the pieced quilt I started years ago and just put away unfinished. I think you've inspired me to start again!

Hi Terri, Your quilt is beautiful. I love the beautiful colors of your quilt. I used to quilt when I was younger, I enjoyed it, but now I like to work on things that are faster to finish. Your work on it looks really beautiful, I would never know that you are a beginner. Have a wonderful week and thanks for sharing. Your weather looks beautiful, we still have snow on the ground, received 6 inches last Friday. Looking forward to spring. Hugs, Terri

Lorraine said...

I absolutely love those colors you've chosen. The script fabric is such a lovely addition. Looks like you are totally enjoying this.

Msartist said...

Dearest Terri, Happy Birthday!! I hope it was as special as you are.
My Great Aunt who is no longer living was a wonderful quilter and made them for a living. I was in awe of the beauty of it. It is something I hope to do at least once. I am happy you are getting the chance to learn & love your fabric choices.
Have a lovely week. ~Theresa

That is such a pretty teapot! I am a cross stitcher, but my sister is a quilter & loves it! So pretty!

Rita said...

My word Terri, what a beautiful quilt. Be careful with that lovely cup of tea though. I have done a sampler many years ago and loved it. But I do cross-stitch and my cards and that is enough for now as my hands are ageing fast. Hugs Rita xxxxx

Maminka Girl - Loribeth said...

Lovely colors Terri... it's so nice to teach yourself something new. Good for the brain! You will have to show and tell when you are finished. Enjoy your week, Loribeth

friedaquilter said...

It's really wonderful to be able to see what you have been up to in your quilting classes, Terri. And you choose a collection of really yummy fabrics! Just reading what you're written I can tell you have most definitely caught the quilting bug!
And you've also photographed the results beautifully. Lovely staging and the cup of tea is a great finishing touch.

Becky Andersen said...

Wow you are doing a beautiful job with your quilt! Love the fabrics you chose. I do still quilt occassionally, but it seems that scrapbooking has taken over! Thanks for sharing you new endeavor with us!

debi said...

I love the colors/fabrics you chose for your quilt. It's going to be so beautiful! Can't wait to see more of it.

Kiki aka Victoria said...

Aloha Teri, Happy belated birthday! I've not been in blogland for a while and am trying to catch up with visits to everyone.
Beautiful teacups, love that you're quilting.
Please sign me up for your Birthday give-way, I'm already a follower. Sounds like you had a wonder English tea birthday; lucky you!
Hugs.

Marlynn said...

Good for you Terri - I love quilting and have been doing it for years. My first class at a local quilting shop had us making a quilt all by hand and had the different stitches, etc. I then made a number of quilts - even the quilt in a day on the sewing machine. Also have some wall hangings. Before art - I would swing between quilting and cross stitch and still do both. Love your colors. I fell in love with Hoffman materials - expensive but last forever. Hugs, girlfriend, and you are doing an amazing job with your beginning quilting! m

It is very difficult to achieve relief from the pain and begin to heal while the injured muscle is in a state of spasming. Rest and sleep come easier thanks to the relaxing effect that Soma has on the injured muscle and both are vital parts of the healing process. http://copybase.org/ - soma 350 mg Soma may also cause dizziness or clumsiness so care should be taken when getting up quickly. Soma online By relaxing the muscle and bringing it out of its spasming Soma can not only aid in relieving the pain but allow other treatments to be used that cannot be performed while the muscle is in a contracted state.
