There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

Peg it's gorgeous, love the fabrics you've used. I'm guessing your not going to quilt through the embroidery. If it were me and I'm not very adventurous with my machine quilting, I'd be stitching around each block, several times, or perhaps cross hatching, but not through the embroidery.

Berglind said...

Oh Peg, I'm speechless! This is one of the most pretty quilts I've every seen... I want to touch it sooo much - I must show my friend Dóra Dís the pictures, she will go crazy over your colors and embroidery - thank you for making my day brighter (I need it, it's so dark in Iceland at this time of the year)!

Judith said...

It is grgeous, I would do the quilting between the blocks, not on the embroiderie blocks and than, maybe some flowers or such.

Andrea said...

I have an idea - send it to me - lol ! It's absolutely beautiful. I think simple quilting will be good too.

Christine said...

Another beautiful quilt. Love the ginger pussy cat on the daisy block. Like Linda I'm also not very adventurous with my machine quilting so I would probaly cross-hatch or quilt in the ditch. The fabrics are so nice it probably doesn't need heaps of quilting.

Your Seed Packet quilt is so adorable! Your fabrics really pull the whole thing together. It makes me want to start stiching!

Rose Marie said...

What a lovely top and your embroidery makes it so special! You've been very busy getting all those projects to the finishing stage .... well done!

This is absolutely gorgeous. I am soooooo inspired to try a quilt like this. As for quilting it - I don't have a suggestion - but something that doesn't take away from the beauty of that stitchery.

You are very talented and prolific!! You could pull all those quilts out of the cupboard and have your very own quilt show!!
