The Field Trip Phase is Over

Well, Marcie seems to have gone back to her beachfront home in Virginia, so I must quit visiting quilt shops and get back to work. While showing Marcie my quilts and UFOs, this UFO surfaced (among a hundred others), so I snatched it up and finished the appliqué (naturally it was the appliqué that was undone):
This is called Tulip Farm. Am hoping to sandwich and quilt it later today after I work on my website for awhile.

Next I had to face the fact that I have fallen too far behind in making Circuit Rider blocks. I'm trying to sew along with Dottie at Little Quilts this year to make twelve of them. So I got this guy done, making three total:

and started to prepare this one. Go, Karen, go:
Four of the fabrics in this one are from the field trip.

I assembled this portable table last night, thinking that it might help me do appliqué from the comfort of my bed. It definitely helps and I've gotten a bit more done on the snowflake for Under the Mistletoe:

Two more Stickles.

The Windham Williamsburg Sampler fabric just arrived at Little Quilts yesterday, so I made this block last night to make sure I got that cute little sampler urn into my Dear Jane quilt:

Rembrandt says "hi".

I love all your blocks. I've been working on a full-size Circuit Rider - I did 36 blocks and added borders. And I just finished sewing on the borders! It's so much fun to see the blocks others are making for this quilt.

Your tulip farm quiltlet is just darling! Love the sampler fabric you used in the DJ block.

Boy, that was loads of fun! I really like the Tulip Farm quilt!
Thanks so much for sharing all that goodness with us!
I really should get back to quilting instead of playing in the yard:)

Wow! You amaze me at all that you get done. I guess I must be slow as molasses - I feel like I never get anything finished!

MARCIE said...

Oh, Melisa commented! And Rembrandt, you funny cat! I am so glad you unearthed that Tulip Farm and finished it. It is so beautiful! You really have been busy. I think you are developing super powers!

Gretchen said...

The Tulip Farm quilt is so precious--the colors are perfect. Sweet Rembrandt looks like she is just chillin' too cute!

Marilyn R said...

Your new found UFO is simply beautiful! The new blocks are looking great too.

Karen said...

Your UFO that got finished is very good! Applique seems to bog us down, doesn't it.
I like the block you made with the new sampler fabric. I have not seen the fabric and need to check it out.

Tulip Farm is lovely. The Stickle blocks are wonderful. Love the urn.

Hi Rembrandt! You look a little down. :(
