    I found this yummy soft green/tan batik and had to design a way to show it off.   Large squares are cut at 10″, so a “layer cake” could be used also.

     Great for any style fabrics, and novelty prints.  So very adaptable for any print, for your favorite guy or college student.

      CENTER STAGE  was actually “center stage” at local shop hop (pictured below)  I was honored when Lisa displayed the quilt on the bed at Picket Fence Quilt Co.

       NEW LOCATION:   Be sure to visit PICKET FENCE  at their new location in Wichita, at Central and Ridge Road.   Loads of parking makes it a breeze to come in and find more fabric goodies!



      P-ZIP LINE

    ZIP LINE  is just right for a Jelly Roll or a Bali Pop.  It actually uses 38 (2-1/2″) strips.   The set I used for this model is “Tidepool”.  

      I’ve seen this week some new strip sets in lovely colors called by the names of birds:   Lorikeet, Hummingbird, and Cockatiel.   My, they’re so pretty and just waiting to “fly” into this quilt!

       And don’t forget it would make a great scrappy quilt from your stash.






         CENTER STAGE TOPPER is the same concept as above CENTER STAGE quilt, but is 31″x31″, making a jiffy quick holiday topper or wall hanging with a great print.

          For shop hop, Lisa at PICKET FENCE chose some lovely fall prints for their model.






        SPLIT LOG CABIN is my take on the log cabin block, use 1/3 yard cuts.  Strip piecing the print and the background make a very quick job of the “logs” for these approx 18″ blocks. 

       Again, adaptable for shades of your favorite color, or seasonal colors.   A stash-buster too.

        And it gets better!   With left-overs from log-cuts, YOU can design your own projects (placemats, a tablerunner, etc)    I chose to assemble them in one project (approx  42″ x 43″)SPLIT LOG 034









     HOUSTON 2014 

         Here’s a peek at my booth at market.  My, my!   That 10’x10′ space gets small really quickly.




      Celebrating a 40th market, there was a special red and white display for the “40th Jubilee”  Was quite a stunning display of large and small red/white projects.   

     And all the other quilts displayed from quilters world-wide are mind-boggling works of art.

      If you’ve never been, you need to put the Houston Festival on your bucket list!
