I finally finished Adam's gray quilt for the new (remodeled) house. The photo looks like it is in black and white but it is not. The house has gray painted walls and I made the quilt in shades of gray with black and white to match the bedroom. The pattern is called Meter Maid (dumb name for a beautiful quilt pattern). I had already made it once in all scrappy colors but this one is even prettier than the scrappy one. I made the gray one extra large for a twin bed because this bed is very deep pockets and I wanted the quilt to cover it. Adam slept in the new house last night and used the quilt.

Last August, my dear friend, Diane Black, passed from this life. Her family gave me these block kits she had bought at the 2013 Mystery Harvest Shop Hop. It is a Civil War quilt, which is totally out of my comfort zone. Of course, I had to make up the blocks.
Each shop featured its own block. I have pictured most of them here. They turned out beautifully. I can't get the setting triangle and border fabrics because it has been too long, so I'll have to figure some way to set the blocks.Each block was a total kit with all the fabrics and complete instructions. The last block includes a little bit of embroidery and I haven't done that yet.

I have been sewing this year but not finishing much. I made a pair of leggings for myself but I need a tunic top to wear with them. I intend to make more leggings for me and my daughter Audrey. I still have last year's mystery quilt from Bonnie K. Hunter in the works. I just need to put a couple more rows on it and make the borders and I will be done. I also have the year before mystery quilt about one third quilted for my husband.
