SAVANNAH BREEZE

6 Sep

Took one of my favorite blocks from a previous project.  Repeated the blocks to make a good old-fashioned scrappy quilt!  I love the secondary design – love the whole thing!!!

T-SHIRT TOSS

4 Sep

A MODERN AND UPDATED STYLE TO GATHER YOUR T-SHIRTS.   Pattern is written for 16 blocks,  12″ and for 15″ t-shirt logo’s.   Quilt sizes are 75×75  and  87×87.  Have fun using scraps to coordinate flying geese with each block.   The FAB thing about this design is more blocks can easily be added or subtracted – so versatile !  I’ll be teaching a two-part  class at PICKET FENCE QUILT CO in Wichita on Sept. 30 and Oct. 14.

WELCOME QM 100 BLOCKS VOL 11 TOURISTS !!!

THERE AND BACK AGAIN 002

 

   “THERE AND BACK AGAIN”

           Welcome to all!  Once again I’m blessed to have a block in a Quiltmaker 100 Blocks issue, Pg 44.  I find this block exciting because it offers so very many different opportunities for different looks with fabric choices.   Wow – the possibilities!

THERE AND BACK AGAIN 001

         I particularly like this black and red sample I made.  I named it “Blood Moon” because the early morning after I assembled it, I saw my first actual “blood moon” – quite an amazing sight.

 

 

 

THERE&BACK

 

    Was recently at Picket Fence Quilts in Wichita, Ks.  Lisa, the owner, got out a mirror.  I am now so inspired to create a quilt with 4 of these blocks as a center medalion, layout would be on point. 

 

     P.S.  If you’ve never been on a quilt shop bus tour, put it on your bucket list!   Last weekend in April I went with some friends (and new friends) to quilt shops in Kansas, Nebr, Iowa, and Missouri.  Had great fun – and oh my – so many beautiful fabrics.

Quilt buddy Carol made this fabulous Shocker t-shirt quilt.  

     This quilt has even made a road trip – to St Louis when the Shockers won the 2014 Missouri Valley Tournament!

      If I remember correctly (? – HA!) she uses my T-SHIRT STAX pattern to make custom quilts also.

OH YEAH – I REMEMBER HOW FUN & EASY

FANCY WEB JPG

 

 

  OH YEAH!

Today I did a bit of cleaning, baking cookies for our family Thanksgiving, some computer work, the dogs outside for the day before a cold front hits,  and sewing with Freebie the cockatiel.

I’m making a new model of my biggest seller FANCY THAT.   I’d forgotten how fast, fun, and easy this puppy goes together.  It’s still so amazing to me the sales just keep going and going and going like the Energizer Bunny!  Fat Quarter friendly too!

Really enjoying re-visiting this one.   And a day at home with a wine spritzer.  HA!
