A GREAT QUOTE


I DON'T REPEAT GOSSIP SO SIT DOWN AND LISTEN CAREFULLY

Not my best work. The word "listen" got lost, but still my favorite saying just because it is clever and funny.

BIG BIRD

I love the work of Karla Alexander. Her usual MO is to stack, cut, shuffle, and sew. When I saw this design, I was amazed it was her pattern. I do consider it an advanced design. She gives you a few options on how to put it together. Not fast or what I would call easy, but very impressive when completed. It is called the Raven( I think) and still available if you want to feel really good about your piecing skills.

Working Small...Again

I seem to be stuck on small. Not a bad thing. It takes up less room, but you can spend just as much time on it as a large project. These little cups are paper pieced and surrounded by an improv border.
It will live in my kitchen. It makes me smile.

Small Project

I have been wanting to try EPP, but I am not in love with the hexie. I decided to give it a try when I saw this pattern on the Quilting Daily website. Their patterns are always so reasonable. I used Sue Dailys method of EPP and applique. You can find it on Youtube. So far I don't feel the need to make a quilt. Just a little napping pillow.

WORKING SMALL




I love drunkards path blocks. This one measures 1.25 finished. I think a nap is in order.

CIRCLE CIRCLE


This is the most challenging block I have done to date. It is from the Circle Pizzaz book by Judy Cisneros. Very satisfying using templates to create it. This is not new, but I think her process was greatly underrated. If you are looking for that spark of creativity, this is it.

LET'S DO IT AGAIN

I read somewhere, this is the 20th anniversary of the " blog". The author stated his reason for continuing his blog on all things music. " I believe that exploring ideas is a good reason to blog. Also sharing experience and asking questions."

This was my reason all along, but I felt like I was having a one-sided conversation.

Let's do it again....stay tuned. Large apple core Missouri star template. Machine pieced and quilted.
