3 more blocks done...

These blocks are a little time consuming, but they are fun, and pretty.

Sew Cherry Wonky Cross Quilt top

The quilt top is done and I'm trying to decide what to put on the back... Do I cover it with yardage from Sew Cherry?? or a simple solid on the back?? The front is so busy, that a colorful but neutral backing might be a little more soothing... a yard of pink cherries though would be awfully sweet!

Just sold a baby quilt on etsy yesterday- I'm very happy. It's on its way to a little girl in Nebraska :)

Japanese - x - and scrappy quilt block

Where have I been? I missed the boat on this fun block! Had to try it out today - what fun. Looks time consuming for a whole quilt, but totally worth it.

Blogger's BOM Quilt Along

Thanks to Canton Village Quilt Works, I am starting a BOM, and I am very excited! The first block design came out this morning and I got right to it. I call it "September" since a new design will be released each month. Can't wait until October 25th...

Wonky Crosses and Sew Cherry

Using the wonky cross block tutorial by Oh, Fransson! and diving into one of my very favorite fabric lines "Sew Cherry" by Lori Holt.... how fun and sweet is this quilt going to be?!?

A Hoopla Kaleidoscope Baby quilt

Here is the finished quilt - we went for a long drive in the car yesterday and I was able to get about 4 hours of hand stitching done! I loved using my new Kaleido ruler for this, and am amazed by how many other looks this pattern can have when paired with different color combo - as seen in google images and flickr. I really look forward to doing another and going for a completely different look.

Anyway, this one is for sale in my shop!

A Farm Fresh baby quilt

Boy, do I love this Farm Fresh fabric from Riley Blake. This little patchwork quilt is going in my shop for some farm and animal loving girl or boy.

A new Hampshire Quilt for a friend who moved away...

Camping, skating, canoeing, apples, blueberries, pumpkins, the seacoast.... New Hampshire....

Using my new Kaliedo Ruler and my Hoopla stash :)

Five blocks done, and probably 4 more to go for a baby quil ttop - a little wild,
 but baby's are intrigued by high contrast, right?!

Cross Quilt

or plus quilt - not sure what to call it! But, I think it's one of  my favorite quilts. I just adore the fabric, and I backed it up with some Ikea fabric I picked up a year or so ago. And red and teal has to be a new favorite color combo.
