Design Wall Monday


On the design wall this week is more of the Arboretum blocks. Still have a ways to go with this one, but it had been fun to work on with all the different Kaffe fabrics.

Also in the works this week is prepping all the applique for block 8 for Vintage Valentine. It is in the last row, second from the right. Will be a busy week for me.

Have a great week!

Design Wall Monday


Today is Patriot Day, in rembrance of 9/11. Above is a quilt I made using a fabric that show the fireman raising the flag over the rubble of the twin towers. This is a day that we should never forget.

More fall quilting on my design wall, this one called Turkey Trot. I still have to applique the legs and then piect the borders. A fun, fast tablerunner for fall. I hope to also get back to Arboretum this week. Always a lot hapening in my quilt studio.
Have a great week!

Design Wall


Fall is in the Air! Here is what I am working on this week. Simple hourglass blocks in autumn colors. I have had these fabrics for quite awhile and figured it was time to do something with them. This should be a finish this week!

Also started this week is my September UFO, called Aboretum. Super fun blocks to put together as you are just free form cutting and sewing in the strips. The quilt takes 99 blocks and are all different prints of Kaffe fabrics. I bought this as a kit last year at Rusty Barn quilt and craft show.
