Design Wall Monday July 29, 2013

This week I am back to working on the Jeweled Forest. This is a pattern in  McCalls Quilting Magazine from December 2009. It is entirely paper pieced and is going together pretty quickly. I have just a couple of sections completed so far. It is a small quilt, only 22x37, which is nice after the last couple of big quilts that I have finished.

Birthday Jane in Vermont

I was lucky enough to have my Birthday Jane Quilt in the Vermont Quilt Show at the end of June. It was in a Special Exhibit celebrating 150 years of the Jane Stickle Quilt. This exhibit was curated by Brenda Papadakis who first drafted all those little blocks. 
Here are some pictures of my quilt and Brenda during the presentation that she gave. Unfortunately I was unable to attend- Vermont is a long way from San Diego!!! I would love to have heard Brenda's presentation and what she was saying about my quilt! 

Thanks to Deborah Bingham for taking the pictures and sharing with me!  If you want to see more of the exhibit, check out photos at The VQF Dear Jane Special Exhibit.

Design Wall Monday July 8, 2013.

This week finds me up in the beautiful Sierra Mountains in Mammoth Lakes. Here to see the Jazz Festival and celebrate our one year anniversary.  As always, I bring along the Janome for a little sewing time.

This week I will be working on my July UFO-Liberty table runner. I have cut out all the pieces for the stars and will start putting together this afternoon.


I am also working on a couple of applique blocks. Have them all prepped and just need to sew the pieces down. These are the first two blocks from a block of the month by Temecula Quilt Company in Temecula. It is a great little shop offering reproduction fabrics and patterns. If you are ever in the area it is a must see.

Design Wall Monday July 1, 2013

July is here and will hopefully bring a few finishes! This week I am hoping to finish my Bonnie  Hunter Easy Street. All I have left to do is add the purple inner border and the turquoise outer border. I am using leftovers for that and making a piano key border. This was a fun quilt and I love the color combination.
