Manly Quilt nearing completion...

(My camera woes haven't been resolved yet, so I'm resorting to using some photos I had on file:) Despite the rather freak snowfall we had here over the weekend, spring is here and it's blooming! These lovelies are cheering (my disgruntled spirits over the dying camera) with their sunny brightness.
Until my camera self-heals (I'm still hoping...) or I can buy another, I'll just have to tell you what I've been working on. Remember the Manly Quilt? So far, I've completed the machine quilting and have cut the binding strips. My plan is to get the binding together and ready for the hand stitching step for this evening. My husband and I have been enjoying House M.D. on dvd from the library in the evenings, which means I've been spending time doing whatever hand work I have ready to go while we watch. I've already managed to get some knitting and needlepoint time in over the weekend, but tonite my sights are set on getting this quilt done.

  2. Is that out of all the old flannel shirts you have been collecting? That is exactly what I want to make for my boys...to me, that seems like a "John Boy" quilt. Love it!!

  7. I love the 'tag' this quilt has. 'Manly'. I guess it has a deep, gruff voice and is about six foot one. Ahhh..... camera woes. Seems to be happening all over the place. Good luck!

  8. That is a nice looking quilt. I hope that you will be able to photograph it for all of us.

    Your cheery flowers must be a welcome sight after the late snows.
