My lace pinkeep progress

I am very busy working on two quilt projects at the same time so have not been able to share much with you lately. I will try and share some photos of the quilts I am sewing in the coming week. I work in the evenings on my lace pinkeep project. Here is my progress so far for the stitched side:


I will be stitching another two rows after this one. I am also going through a book of lace bands to see if there are some in here that I want to use. I would like to make three bands of lace to give the same effect as the stitched rows on the other side. You can get lost going through these lace books. Time flies by and all I have done is sit and look at all the pretty patterns.


I have been helping some of the ladies in my quilt group with their center blocks for the medallion quilts. Today one of the ladies came over to have me help her pick out the fabrics and cut the block. There are some exciting blocks happening! I cannot wait until our next quilt evening when we will show the results so far.

Oh that is so pretty. I love the single color on that fabric. Is the lace going to on this also?
Very nice.

Hello Heidi,

It looks beautiful, these white 'lace' ribbons you stitched. I am eager to see the result as a pinkeep!

When will you have your meeting with the quiltgroup?

Have fun with all the creative works!!!

Heidi, your band sampler is looking wonderful. I love the patterns you've choose so far. What a great book. I'm going to have to be on the look-out for one to add to my collection.

This is just beautiful, Heidi. I love that thread on that fabric and those stitched lace bands are just too pretty. I'm anxiously awaiting the lace pieces. Now get your nose out of those pattern books and make that lace!! :-)
