temporary sewing room. Unlike my room at home, this one had a view of the ocean. This was a kit from A Quilter's Dream,purchased at the Long Beach show. It is very calm and soothing, just like the person who will receive it. A week in paradise is good for the soul.

I have really become interested in straight lines for machine quilting. These were created with the feed dogs up and just slightly moving the piece to get the curve. It adds a modern feel to a traditional block. I love the mysterious nature of the square in a square. The photo does not do it justice, but the block draws you in for a closer look.

This is from a not to long ago magazine, whose name I can't remember. The leaves are very large and paper pieced. They are so different I could not wait . The completed top is very small so it sits until I can enlarge it, while keeping the leaves the focus.
