Cascadia Finished

I spent about a month this spring dealing with an infected toe. I was disappointed not to be out in the garden and took the opportunity to hand quilt Cascadia, a Humble Quilts Quiltalong.




I started another baby quilt for my grand niece, Piper, in Minnesota. I decided to make two of them when the strips I cut lent it self to making two blocks. I was inspired by Quilting with the Past and Oh, Oh, Quilts!.

I had the pleasure of meeting Dawn of Collector with a Needle and Doreen of Aunt Reen's Place a couple of weeks ago. Doreen taught one of Dawn's patterns and invited Dawn to speak in Warrenton, Virginia. It was a treat to meet these talented ladies. Click on the links to read about it.

  1. Your Cascadia looks good. Nice quilting. That is one I wish I had made.
    Those blocks will make very fun baby quilts. I like the way you are mixing up the positive and negative blocks.

  6. Your Cascadia is so cute! And how special with the hand quilting. Sorry to hear about the toe - I hope it's all better now - but it turned out to be a great opportunity to do that quilting. Nice!

    Oh, I love your "twin" quilts! Very clever of you to figure out that you can do two blocks that are opposites.

  9. Cascadia is a treasure! So beautiful. The hand quilting is wonderful as is the assortment of lovely fabrics. It was a treat to visit Virginia. I was thrilled the stitchers who reproduced the antique quilts got to see the antique quilts. You live in a beautiful state!
