WIP

It's been hard to get back into the groove of sewing and quilting. In the evenings I find it easier to just pick up something that is already in progress.

Like my pink Strings quilt.....

And this scrappy quilt that has been hiding in my closet for a couple of years. I found extra blocks so I've been adding rows to see if I can complete this little quilt.

I've lost the pattern, so I'm not planning on any borders.

I hope you have a happy quilting day!

Yes... always a 'new transition' in moving forward, and I echo "Snoodles" comment; praying that your reflection of God's amazing provision will soothe and comfort you. I REALLY like your pink strip quilt. So lovely. Your talent and offering glorifies Him, I know, Jocelyn. Love and Prayers ~

both are really cute, I just finished a top for a blue string quilt on my blog, never tried a block like your 2nd quilt, a simple border would look nice though??

Two great quilts, but I'm partial to the Pink Strings. Working on my strings quilt too, but I'm not as far along as you are.

Love your pink string quilt. I am glad to see that there are others out there who have blocks stashed away. That is such a pretty pattern.

Your pink strings blocks are gorgeous. I really like the scrappy quilt too, it's a lovely pattern.

I am just fixing to finish the binding on a quilt that I started for our youngest son in 2005 for his high school graduation. He is now graduating from Law School and has no idea that he is getting it.
I sure hope that you enjoy your getting to complete some projects. It is refreshing to complete something that has been sitting for so long.
You have been in my prayers!

Kat said...

Both of your quilts are gorgeous, though anything pink automatically becomes my favorite.

I am sorry for your losses. I pray that you find comfort in warm memories of those you have lost.
