Design wall Monday 7-25 - 11

I am busy this morning taking Dutch in for a biopsy to see if he has either bone cancer or fungal osteomyelitis.  I am hoping for the osteomyelitis because it is treatable.  The bone cancer is just to horrible to think about.
We just have to wait for 5 days for the results.  Cross your fingers for my boy, send positive thoughts for me and him!

But I am working on this as a last item for the show.  This is all hand quilted with lime green crochet thread and follows no pattern.  I started a year ago at a retreat and am just now finishing up.  The quilting stitches are large, and I wanted that effect.  It looks wonderful and I am very glad it is nearly done and ready to hang.

We hang the quilts from the ceiling this Thursday and Friday at the Jones Creek Library.  So come see them in August.  They will hang the entire month.  Open house is August 6 from 10 to 2 pm with demos and people there to talk to about the quilts.

I will have pictures of that, and I am sure a few stories too!


  1. Good luck for the exhibition but most of all good luck for Dutch's results! Thinking of you!

  2. Pretty Pretty quilt! Good luck today!

  3. I am thinking lots of good things for Dutch (and you too of course). Love the new quilt - very fresh and inviting.

    Hugs - Marie

  4. Love the quilting on Lemon-Lime. Hand quilting does take lot of time, even with big stitches. Best wishes for Dutch. Hopefully it will be good news.

  5. Hope that your news is the better of the two options. Love your quilt and the colors are my favorites.

  6. Love these lime greens and yellow!
    Hoping for the best for Dutch.

  7. Nice and bright! I enlarged the photo but still couldn't see the stitching, so I guess it isn't as big as it could be :)

    Good health to your Dutch!


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
