Just an update WIP

At the moment 
I am a month behind on my LE and from following others who are making this quilt I think I will stay that way.





I'm in no hurry or it's not a race. 
And from the others I am learning techniques that is helping to make this easier. I appreciate all the work that Esther did to make this pattern for the public and very grateful that she offers it for free each month.
As you can see I have marked the placement for month 2.
Still need to applique the center, then comes some of the harder part, picking out fabric for next pieces.
I'm making mine scrappy and I do have quite the collection of fabric to pick from. Sometime having more to choose from doesn't make it easier.


Then I'm doing a pumpkin pillow out of wool. 
It is a Sew Cherish pattern.
A very easy project but I wish there were better instruction on how to make the various crazy stitches. 




It comes with the transfers but no direction on how to do the pattern just a few basic simple stitches. I do wish I had a book that shows how to go about making these stitches.
Since or until I can figure them out I decided to use some of my own stitch patterns. They are pretty simple but I do have the directions to show how.

But I'll make it work.

I'm adding this because Elaine had a great idea, 


Hi Kathleen, how about posting a pic or two of the stitch you want instructions for? I reckon some of us will have a book we can give a method from, or know of a tutorial you can look at. The ones you are using look lovely, and as for the LE quilt, you're ahead of me, I've forced myself to wait until I've cleared projects I already have on the go. Could be quite a while.... love, Elaine






 If you do know how to make any of them I would really appreciate your help.
Thank you so much

    1. Thank you for the great idea. I will do that, there are some/most of patterns that it came with that I have no idea how they were constructed.

  3. I see blanket stitch (for the half flowers and the irregular line) , lazy daisy (also several times), kolonial knot and fly stitch. The others I don't recognize.... However. Since I have been stitching, I found out that you can find tutorials on EVERY STITCH on youtube. If you know the name of the stitch that is..... If you want to have any help on the ones I mentioned, just shoot me an email.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
