Tavern House Block 3

Well... we finally have some sunshine and warmer weather on the horizon! Yippeee! What a loooong and sloooooow awakening it has been for Spring, huh? All around blogland I'm seeing pics of yards still filled with snow... will those flower heads ever be able to pop up and sway in the warm breezes? Soon.... very soon...

Pam (no blog) and I are still stitching along on Tavern House (a wool quilt design by Maggie Bonanomi). I just finished Block 3...

Once all the prep gets done, the stitching is relaxing and very enjoyable. As I mentioned before, I will most likely go back and add some decorative stitches to this piece... but, before I begin that process I'd like to get all the main pieces stitched to the blocks... and see how the blocks interact with one another... for all I know, the simplicity of these blocks may be just right?

I also have one more of these posie pinkeeps to show... this one is using the original wool that came with the kit... notice that I went a bit crazy with those french knots in the center? lol!

A fellow blogger named Jayne was nice enough to stop by my blog and leave a comment... so (naturally) I had to visit her blog and see what High Upon The Hill was all about! ;-) While there, I discovered pictures of beautiful quilts, fabrics and fun gatherings of friends! You should hop on over there and check it out for yourself... maybe even leave a comment and become a follower!? Have some fun and share some bloggy-love!!!! :-)

Until next time... stay healthy & keep on smiling!



  1. Thank you Sharon....:)

    Tavern House is a beautiful quilt, wish I had decided to made it when we (Country Loft) did it as a BOM last year....yours is looking beautiful!


  2. Hey, love that springy block. Keep stitching those spring things. I'm hoping they have the same effect as the snow day blocks. Seems like every time you posted one, we got a storm. So after seeing this block I am going home to look for blossoms Lol

  3. Those are beautiful pieces, love doing flowers for spring. I have her book with small and large projects, need to get something started from that book.


  4. I had a little time today. I rarely get to blog hop anymore....so busy:(
    But your wool pieces caught my eye and I had to stop by to tell you just how wonderful they are. Just GORGEOUS....I love wool and one day hope to do the Maggie piece that is waiting patiently for me in it's orig package. Smiles...

  5. Great work again. I love, love that pinkeep and all the French knots...

  6. Oh Sharon! I love your posie pinkeep. All the french knots really add a nice touch and your Tavern House block is nice too!

    I have some wool kits that I purchased at a quilt show last February. They are small projects because I've never worked with wool before. I'm a bit nervous to start the prep...any tips?
