Design Wall Monday–June 23, 2014

 062314 - 1

My latest Christmas quilt is on my design wall today.  Each block is 16 inches and there are only 9 blocks in the quilt. The pattern is Solstice by Kate Spain and the fabric line has the same name.  It needs to be finished for Christmas in July at the shop at the end of July.  I went to the Atlanta Modern Quilters Guild sew-in last week and managed to get all the blocks cut and in baggies so it is fairly easy to work on a block.  The fifth one is almost finished.

As a result of making these blocks, I am also making progress on my Bowties.  Here are blocks 426-450.

0614 426-450

I think Bonnie used 729 in her quilt but I am thinking of maybe making it a little larger so still have lots more bowties to make.  I need to spend a little time soon cutting up scraps to be ready to make more of these.

  1. Your Christmas quilt is just lovely. I haven't seen that fabric, but will have to look for it. How big are your bowties? Beautiful!

    Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

    Sri Gita Govinda
    -A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

    Govinda Lilamrta
    -An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu
    -This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

    Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

    Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

    And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

    The Meeting in the Box

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

    And lastly, we have the supreme scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

    Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:
