To-Do #1

The weather did not allow me to get outside to take any pics of my finished Lumen quilt, so I took a few inside on my bed. I love how Rebecca’s quilting complements the minimal piecing. The quilting design we chose is called Celestial Spark Clam, and the variegated thread is Great Barrier Reef.

And here’s one more lovely shot taken by Rebecca before she sent Lumen back to me:

To-Do #2

Here are the flying geese sewn together for September for New Mexico, California, and Washington. Notice that my step-daughter in a Bay Area city in California experienced the highest temperature in September as represented by Kona Coral. In the photo below I forgot to sew Kona Charcoal rectangles at the end of the columns since September does not have 31 days.

To-Do #3

I am two-thirds done with the sashiko stitching on my Daisy drawstring pouch from BeBe Bold. In the photo below, I have completed one set of the diagonal lines of stitching, and I’m really liking how it is looking:

  1. Lumen looks stunning and I hope you get a break in the weather for some outdoor photography!


  2. Lumen looks amazing! Rebecca’s quilting is genius, I love the panto AND that thread! It’s just a beautiful quilt. Are you keeping it? – I forgot if you mentioned it. I am debating ordering some of that gorgeous thread, I love the way it looks. You’ve gotten a lot done on your sashiko. Thank you for sharing with To Do Tuesday!


  3. Lumen turned out beautifully, Mary! I love the minimal piecing and all that amazing quilting. The flying geese temperature columns are fun to see. We’ve been to the Bay area in different times of the year, and summer really doesn’t seem to make an appearance until September or October!

  5. Beautiful projects. I especially like that daisy stitching you are doing so perfectly. Happy Stitching from me.
