A Post of Finishes and Few Words

I'm in some kind of funk lately and I don't have much to say today, but I wanted to share my progress.

Diamonds and Purples is finished 68" x 80".


Spinning Stars is also finished 43" x 62".






I made a coordinating pillowcase





To reward myself for these two finishes, I sewed all my 1" strings together in jellyroll race fashion to make this panel. The panel is still just a flimsy but I plan on quilting it and making it a wall hanging. I also made a rag bag tote.

If you pray, pray me out of this funk please. Thank you and God bless.

  1. Zenia, I just said a prayer for you. It can be hard around the holidays. Lots of memories and missing people.
    You have been doing beautiful things! all the quilts you have made are wonderful and I am quite intrigued by your 1" string quilt. I've never seen anyone do that before.

  3. That wall hanging is gorgeous!! Lucky you! I also like how the binding on the dancing stars keeps them dancing to the very edge. I hope your funk is nothing that a good weekend of sewing can't cure. I am SO looking forward to getting in a few stitches (finally!) this weekend. Be happy you are so talented and so persevering to get it all done!

  5. The quilts are beautiful. I also think a certain little girl is going to love having a pillowcase to match her quilt. You gave me a grin using the term "funk". I totally get how you're feeling and wish you a quick uplifting event to pull you out of it.

  15. Sorry you feel down. It will get better, stick with your 10 mins even if your funk tells you not to bother. Your work is worth it, beautiful.

  16. Great to see you still press ahead when in a funk. Quilting cheers me up. At least I am doing something! Nothing like a jelly roll race to get the adrenalin flowing. It is in such cheerful colors too!
