~ Stitching Sunshine Blog Hop ~

Hello Quilting Friends!  Today is my day in the Stitching Sunshine Blog Hop hosted by Carla over at Creatin' in the Sticks.  


When I saw the sign ups for this blog I knew I had to join in because I was already making something yellow. My project is a quilt called Hunkering Down. This quilt block is free printable PDF here on my blog.  You can find the post with the link to the PDF by CLICKING HERE.  


Unfortunately, my quilt isn't finished due to my decision to quilt it to death.  The quilting has a lot of ruler work mixed in with some free motion feathers.   Since my Bailey Home Quilter has a 15" throat I can only quilt half of a block at a time.  This really slows down the quilting due to all of the starting, stopping and clipping threads.   


But....OH MY GOODNESS is it worth the extra effort.  I can't wait to see this big ole girl on a bed.  Yes she's a little on the large side, finishing at 90" x 90". 


The buttery yellow Andover fabric is perfect for my blue and yellow shabby chic spare bedroom.




Below is an Electric Quilt drawing of the quilt since I can't show you the whole real quilt.  I played around with several ideas for setting these blocks.  You can see them on a previous blog post HERE.


Well that's it for me but make sure you hop over to the other bloggers participating in this blog hop.  This is one creative group of bloggers.

Incredible quilting on that sunny yellow quilt and SEW perfect for the Hop!!

I went right from mask making into gardening! The quilt is beautiful and I have to realize I just don't have time to quilt in the summer months and should stop planning it. I have 3 babies coming this year (only one is my grandchild), but I have so many on my list! I said at the beginning of 2020 Wednesday were my sewing day no matter what. Before I saw your post I decided to spend time in my sewing room today. I have a group of ladies that I miss so much that I used to sew with twice a month. Can't wait for that again! I worked all afternoon in the garden yesterday so my body would probably prefer a day of sewing anyway! But first I have to do my chores. So happy Khaleesi has settled in so nicely. Sometimes my chiuhauhau gets the time wrong on dinner! But she always lets me know about 11:00 a.m. it's time for a walk! Have a great day!

Again, thank you for that wonderful block. It does look complicated but it's wonderful in the setting you used. Can't wait to see it when it's done; be sure you show pictures. Your quilting is outstanding, even though it must be a real challenge with your limited quilting space. It speaks on sunshine; lovely.
