Bazaar Quilt

Japan has been rainy this past week and we've been relieved from the heat somewhat. Nice for quilting that's for sure! Yes, I am quilting. In the evenings when Tetsu and I were watching the Olympics, I've been quilting the bazaar quilt that my friends and I pieced. Our quilt was making the rounds during the months of June and July and it came to my house this week. I think I'll keep it another week and see how much more I can do. All stitch-in-the-ditch so it is easy non-thinking quilting. This means my Wonky Word Love quilt has been relegated to a corner again but the bazaar quilt needs to be finished by the beginning of October so this takes priority.




And in honor of Chip's christening I made Chocolate Chip cookies yesterday. Too bad she can't enjoy them. Well, the rest of us will!

That quilt is beautiful. By quilting do you mean hand stitching, ebroidering on to the quilt ? and what is a bazaar quilt. Sound dumb? , no new to the terminology

My girl would give your cookies a try.
She has been caught nibbling on cake & vegetarian pie crust.

The quilt is beautiful and I love the "deer in the headlights" look on Chip's face.

The bazaar quilt is stunning. Orphan block quilts are my very favorite quilt. I know these aren't necessarily orphan blocks, but it has that look. You all did a fantastic job setting it together. Have fun quilting it!

Your quilt is gorgeous, and Chip is just the cutest... those ears!! I'm sure your bazaar will see much $$ come in for that hand-quilted beauty!

I wish that I could win the bazzar quilt, it is beautiful. Can hardly wait to see the adventures that little Chip will take us on. Watching her grow up will be lots of fun!

You all did such a nice job on this quilt. Are you quilting the entire quilt or will everyone do some quilting.
