I'm still here...

but I've been busy with several things.  First I had to finish a hand quilting project that has been sitting around since 2007.  Yes, yes I know, but don't we all have projects that have been around for a while.  This one was started while at a retreat.  The theme was "heritage quilts".  I thought I knew what fabrics were considered reproduction, but I soon discovered that I had a lot to learn. 

The style of this quilt however is heritage.  It is what was often called a "strip quilt".  Each of the blocks were signed by attendees at the retreat.

I also had to put the binding on a quilt that I started in a Seminole workshop.  I call it "A Seminole Christmas"  The fabric is from the Robyn Pandolf Christmas Collection from a couple of years ago.  This will add a festive feel to my bedroom.
and here are some close ups of some of the rows.

Now I just have to finish off the African Collage that I started piecing the last time.  I should be finished before Christmas and will post the end result next time.  I'm also adding to a Round Robin. but that is for another post.

Your "heritage quilt" is really stunning - even better in person, and I love love love your Seminole Christmas - it will definitely add some colour wherever you display it.

I love the heritage quilt, too. The seminole chrismas is such a departure from the usual christmas quilts and of course I love it too. Hope it's not too cold there yet!
