One more quilted..........

I wanted to quilt another easy one next.  This one is just a random pattern of a controlled group of fabrics so it was a perfect candidate for my wavy grid quilting.  It is 55" x 68".  This is one of the Stack and Slash quilts (you can see the construction posts if you click on Stack and Slash on my Label list on the right sidebar).  The backing fabric at the right in the photo is an old Alexander Henry fabric from the 1990s.  I used it on the back of another quilt too and now I have less than 1/4 yard of it left.  The remainder of the fabrics in the quilt are in the pile at the right and I'll choose the binding out of them.
 
 
I have one more color of cactus blooming.  The pale pink is really pretty, but then I say that about all of them don't I?
The results from my test Wed. were good and my eye surgical procedure will happen at the middle of the month.  The removal of the radioactive seeding will be 5 days later.  I hope the weather is good both days because it is an hour and a half drive.

It's a pretty combination of fabrics.
I'm glad your test result was good. Do they plan to kill the mass with the seeds? Sorry, I don't much about it.
You're not driving yourself though, right?
I hope I'm not being too personal. It must be a very anxious time. Take care.

I'm happy to hear your test results were good and that treatment won't take that long.

That's a great backing fabric.

Very pretty fabrics. The photo of the flowering cactus almost looks like part of the fabrics. :)

Hope things go well with your surgery. I still think often of you and pray for you as you come to mind.

I love the way you mix fabrics--print and batik. Every quilt you make is a new delight, and this one just makes me want to run to the studio to play with my fabrics.

You have been and will continue to be on my mind while you go through this ordeal with your eye.

Gene Black said...

I will continue to keep you in my prayers for your procedure and healing time.

I have been thinking of you Wanda and I hope the procedure goes smoothly and that the procedure of those "seeds" will take care of the mass. I do hope that you have someone to be with you for moral support and to get you there and back to your home - I hope there will be no headaches or after affects from the seeding.

Michele said...

Another gorgeous quilt. Love the wavy quilting-- tempted to give it a try. I'm better with my walking foot than free motion and I think I could do it.
Thanks for sharing the news about your test-= glad the test results were goog.

Mary said...

I'm so glad the test results were good and you can move forward with the procedure. Congrats on getting another one quilted. It's very pretty.

Love that 90's print. My cactus still has no buds. Keeping you in my prayers. Glad you are moving forward with getting this taken care of.

You are always in my prayers for a successful procedure and a quick and complete recovery, along with peace of mind. When I consider how creative and productive you have been while all this has been going on, I know I will be "blown out of the water" with your productivity, when this matter has all been resolved. You are always an inspiration!

If the weather doesn't look good just plan on a hotel. No good reason to be worrying about the weather or driving in it! Sending only good thoughts.

Sheila said...

Lovely quilt. This pattern looks like fun. Love the quilting. Gives the quilt movement. I must give that method a try.
I'm glad your test results were good and they can began treatment soon.
Take care. You are in my thoughts.

I love the curved line quilting.

I hope the weather will be perfect for you for both trips. I'll be thinking of you.

Elaine M said...

Lovely quilt, nice rich colors. Glad to hear about the test result. I'm keeping you in my prayers.

Sharon said...

Yeah! More good news. I certainly hope you have someone driving you for these appts. Love the wavy line quilting, it's perfect for this quilt. Take care!

JJM said...

Gosh those Alexander Henry fabrics look delicious, of course your arrangement of them, makes such a grand design. I always look forward to the finished photo.

I hope set aside those days after the seeding, to do absolutely nothing but let it do the work. You need your rest.

suemac said...

Glad you are looking on the bright side. At least you are getting a lot of quilting done to take your mind off of the procedures that are coming.

Cedar Ridge Studio said...

Take care Wnada. Do you mind if I put you on our prayer chain at church when you have your procedure?
You are in my thoughts daily.

Cathi said...

That is a lovely rich quilt -- almost a velvet look with that richness of colour!
I hope your weather is perfect those days you have to travel for the procedures.

Lynn said...

The quilt is pretty but HOORAY for good news!!

Muddling Through said...

Another very pretty quilt, and I like your wavy lines. You do a good job of keeping them uniform. And yes, you do say that about most of the cactus flowers, but they are all really pretty, especially in a time when so much of the outside pretties are fading away.

Barbara Strobel Lardon said...

Doing something easy is always a good break for the mind.

All you cactus are beautiful and deserve that attention. This one is gorgeous.

Glad to hear you had some good news. Hope the procedure does the trick!

Diane said...

love the wavy quilting too!
and am glad to hear 'good' about your eye-
thinking about you & praying that all goes well.

Pat said...

I love the fabric that you have chosen for you quilt but I say that about all of your fabric choices. You have a good eye for color which some people do not have. You are in my thoughts and prayers that everything will turn out ok. It is scary when it has to do with your vision. I am off to eye doctor on Monday for visual problems also. I am hoping it is nothing more than cataract but I have some other issues also. Wishing you luck with the procedure.

Elaine said...

I had never done a string quilt but always wanted to. I walked into my studio yesterday and said"I am going to try a string quilt with all those pink flannel scraps from several past quilts". Finished it last night and love the bright, cheerful jumble of color. Thanks for the inspiration. Like the wavy quilting and prayers are going to the Father for you as I type. Blessings and peace to you, Wanda. A speedy recovery.
