Coming Home and FLW

I have finally finished the second part of my Coming Home BOM quilt.  Everything is fitting together well so far with minimal un-sewing.  The four corners are up next and I have the pieces cut out and ready to applique. 

The applique tulips will be turquoise and magenta (two of each).  I have started to applique one block and hope to get them all done before the third set of instructions come out at the end of April.

If you read my previous post, you will know that I am making a string quilt with material from my Dad's shirts.  Here is my second of 16 blocks.

I have made a couple more Tula Pink sampler blocks in the last 3 weeks and need to get back to making the rest of the blocks for this quilt.  I seem to have a lot of irons in the fire at the moment. 

Frank Lloyd Wright's Office Window counted cross stitch is done!  I finished the last few stitches of outlining one morning this week.  Now, to get this one washed and pressed and ready for framing, along with the other two FLW windows...

I will be working on my applique for Slow Sunday Stitching this week.  Take a look at what the other hand stitchers and knitters are doing this week over at Kathy's blog. 


  1. You do have a lot going on! The colours in your Coming Home are really nice. And your Tula quilt will be spectacular, I know it already :)

  2. I like that first block you show - such a nice pattern!

  3. Congrats on finishing the FLW stitchery!
    Enjoy the appliqued flowers... perfect to stitch on Easter!

  4. You have been busy!! I love your projects. I wonder how big coming home will be eventually? Happy Easter.
