  1. 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,

  2. 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.

  3. 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)!

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

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

  6. 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.

  15. 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!!
