Lately

 

I need to make a clarification before I start.  I have a new computer, new camera and a new operating system. 

It has been awhile since I posted – July was a busy month  for me between sewing swap blocks and a five day quilt retreat.  I still do not have my Carolina Lily, from last post, completely assembled.  But I am very near finished with my Farmers Wife quilt – but I will save that for another post.

A few years back I decided to step outside the box and I joined in a group project on one of Yahoo Groups.  I do not ordinarily make this type of quilt but I am pleased with it now that it is quilted.  I think that the quilter did a great job on the quilting.

This is Feathered Stars designed by Kim Diehl.  It is in her book “Simple Traditions”

I have also kept up to date with the Summer Star Sew Along that Temecula Quilt Company is having.  I love getting something “quilty” in the mail.  Don’t you?

Here are my stars so far

On Saturday I have a class with Paula Barnes of Red Crinoline Quilts aka Bonnie Blue Quilts.  I am looking forward to the class.

Until next time.

Thank you so much for making me look "out of the box" with color options for Temecula project. Holiday colors! I can make it for me or a gift...or two these are small and fun. I was using similar color way to the store's and thinking going browns for fall...but Christmas...I need someone thing new.
