    I finally finished this little Quilt Top! The blocks were inspired by the pillow cover “flying rainbow” in the book PillowPop. If you haven’t checked out this book, I highly recommend it for your quilt book library. As the name indicates, the patterns are for single “block” projects intended for pillows, but they are all […]

    I was a bit overambitious when I took this project to Sewing Summit last week. I was expecting to have more open sewing time for personal projects. Oh, well. I got these bits sewn during lunch hours. The design for these blocks is inspired by the book, “PillowPop”, which is our September Quilters’ book club […]

    I (finally) finished my Marcelle Medallion quilt top! It seemed like a long haul to get those cross blocks on for the outer border, but (non-quilting) life gets busy sometimes. I love this view of the borders. I intentionally used light fabrics for the brick border, hoping it would contrast with the dark flying geese, […]
