Play Time!

I finished quilting and binding my "Prill" quilt today.  I was able to do a little experimenting with my quilting.  I have been practicing different techniques and designs that I found on "You tube"!

It isn't perfect, but I am very pleased!

Red, White and Blue!

I have to tell you that I love red, white and blue quilts.  If I have one, I have a dozen, BUT, when a thought crosses my mind, I will add to the collection.  Here is an optical illusion, sort of, for a new pinwheel.  I changed the directions of the pinwheels for each row (turned the red and blue)  I am going to add a red sashing, and then a blue border.  I do need some help on "How do I quilt this darn thing?"

If you have any design suggestions, please leave a comment!

Good morning,  As usual, I have several projects in various stages and have been trying to "catch" up and finish a few of them.  Here is a nice stack waiting to have the binding stitched.

Here are two that need binding, and both minis

And my newest project, called "Braid" and is from the newest Fons and Porter "Scrap Quilts".  I am using scraps from my "Swoon" quilt and most of the fabric is Kate Spain.

Happy fishing and "Catch" you later!

Sew, Where Have I Been?

Why, she says, I have been sewing and sewing and quilting.  I will catch you up over the next couple of days. I finished my first Xmas quilt of 2014.  My cousin sent me some green Santa fabric covered with coco cola!  Sew, I made her this quilt and two pillow shams. The backing will be the green Santa/Coke fabric.  I will quilt it with something a little modern or some lines?!

I started another Xmas quilt, a large carpenter star.  But, I didn't like the background fabric, sew I ordered something different.  I will post some more pics tomorrow.
