Quilting in Front of the Fire - Day 2

I forgot to include a picture in my last post of the corner blocks for the Wedding Quilt that I completed on Tuesday so here are two:
Today I have been forced by the wintery weather outside to stay by the fire again and sew.  The temperature was minus 10 first thing this morning, rose to the dizzy heights of minus 4 and is now dropping again.  What fun to have no choice but to stay in and indulge in my favourite hobby. I have added sashing and another border to the Wedding Quilt today and you can see in this picture where those red blocks are going to be positioned.
I've been looking through my books of block designs for some appropriate for a wedding quilt.  I'm thinking Steps to the Altar,  Log Cabin, English Wedding Ring etc.  I would like to find a block related to the State of Florida as that is where David and Jessica got engaged but have had no luck so far.  Any ideas would be gratefully received.


  1. A good way to spend the day Lis. The quilt is going to be beautiful. Keep warm this weekend.

  2. Wow! This is coming along beautifully! Maybe I should get married again and you will make ME a quilt! Mind you it would have to be to the same man and I am not sure HE would want to go to church again.

  3. Oh that is beautiful quilt. Sorry if you have to be forced to be indoor quilting hehe! Florida, pink flamingo come to mind!

  4. Hi Liz,
    I found your blog when I was looking for quilting shops in Malta! It makes for such rewarding reading - I am another teacher who quilts and have just turned my hand to blogging this week.

    Your blogging has been very inspirational, so thank you!

    Warmest wishes,

  5. We quilters can find any reason to quilt, can't we? You because it's too cold outdoors and me because it's too hot in the sun !


I really appreciate your lovely comments, ideas and opinions, they make my day. Thank you for visiting Piece'n'Peace,
hugs, Lis x
