Design Wall Wednesday

Finally getting back with a new design wall update.  This is the Bluebird Quilt, adapted from a pattern from Crabapple Hill Designs.  Since I actually took this picture last week and am just now finding the time to blog, I have already sewn these blocks together and am working on the borders.  The borders will be white and will also be embroidered with bluebirds and ribbons around the edges.  It will take some time to complete.

I’m sorry it’s taken so long to update the blog.  Things have been so hectic at my house.  My husband has been sick for a very long time and he has recently has some severe medical setbacks which has necessitated the services of hospice.  The days have become such a blur with the arrival of medical equipment and nursing staff and getting our dog, Sophie, adjusted to all the new people coming and going.   At this point, I THINK things have settled down into a more quiet routine and I am able to sit down and sew a bit here and there, so will have some things to show you periodically.  Thank you for staying with me!  I do appreciate it.
Until next week …….
Enjoy,  Merry Gay


  1. Merry Gay, this quilt will be spectacular. I can't wait to see it finished. I do hope the medical staff and equiptment will bring your husband some comfort and relief. And I hope you find some peace in all this.

  2. Very nice. I think I need to take lessons from you. Your work is awesome! Glad that you are finding time to get back to it.
