Word Verification

Just wanted my followers to know that I have turned off the very irritating word verification. So if you desire to leave a comment it will be easier. Thanks.

A change of Heart

After turning my first Lily Rosenberry block on its side, the way it will be set, I have decided that it isn't that bad.  Perhaps when I finish the others I will decide differently, but for now it is a go.

1st Lily Block The background doesn't show up, but it is a light tone on tone from Mary's Blenders by Moda.

Being like most quilters, I have more than one project in the works.  This is a hand piecing  project.  The blocks are 3 inch finished.  I made my templates out of template plastic and I find if I use my 18m rotary cutter I can cut around them.  The pieces are small enough that I can just use the dots to piece them together.  This was started with a doll size quilt in mind but after making a few I found out just how fun they are to make, and I may make more but not the 810 blocks that the antique quilt has.  They are sooooo cute.:))  I will use a palette of pink and brown one of my favorite combinations.

 Baby Bow Tie

Until next time.

New Fabrics

I appliqued my first Lily Rosenberry Block and I was not pleased with it so I am starting over.  My layover slipped and it was not real symmetrical.  Not a real good start for 2012.

But I did take advantage of Reproduction Fabrics Superbowl Sale and purchased these fabrics for stash enhancement.
