I knew when I chose these fabrics that I didn't love them together, but went ahead anyway. Now I'm not sure if I like this quilt or hate it. Thanks to Smith-Appleby House Museum for the setting.






This pattern is a mystery quilt from Bonnie Hunter.  Fun but LOTS of pieces and cutting.

To enlarge or not to enlarge, that's the question.

 This quilt top is on my waterbed (thus the lumpiness) right now.  It's for my son's good friend and I'm trying to decide whether or not to put some borders on it.  I actually should find out what size his bed is - duh!

This is the "Nifty Thrifty" pattern from Scraps & Shirttails, one of Bonnie Hunter's books.  It's all men's shirts that I picked up here and there.  I'm sure I showed you some blocks somewhere along the way.  I hope to finish it this Saturday at the RI Modern Quilting Guild's Sewing Day at Ryco, or at least come close to completion.
I hope you are well!  May you bless and be blessed!

Re-covering

I know (or rumor has it) that it's national quilting day.  I'm not quilting just yet, 
 but I recovered this ugly fabric on this toy box my dear brother made for my kids when they were little.
I had this Ikea fabric in my stash and I think this is a good use for it.  It compliments the curtains which are not in the photo.  And what's not to love about fresh basil and parsley - spring's a coming!
I hope you're enjoying your Saturday!

Strip and Flip baby quilt

 I used this easy tutorial:  http://www.cluckclucksew.com/2012/07/tutorial-strip-and-flip-baby-quilt.html
 with my Tula Pink Acacia jelly roll.
 Baby Cora Ruth was recently seen on Facebook lounging on her new quilt :-)
 This adorable fabric is from Heather Ross.  So perfect for a baby girl.  I hope she grows up loving this quilt.  
I did free-motion quilting on it, and hearts down the flipped strip, but I forgot to take a picture of that.
Blessings to little Baby Cora and her family.

Large modern log cabin

 I said good-bye to this quilt last weekend - sniff, sniff!
 In December at my family's Christmas party my nephew and his wife won it in a raffle.  It's one of my favorites.  It's quite large and my husband had trouble holding it up.  The negative space on the left is all different shades of a nice, soft linen.


And the back is a cute campground fabric.
