catching up...


well, here i am trying to play catch up in sew many ways...
i am including quite a few pix in this edition; so, please be patient with the download time.
i have been very busy (to say the least) sewing quilt tops. there are so many new fabrics coming out this year that i feel the need to free shelf space in the old craft room...so i can fill 'em up again!
above is a close up of the super cute blue and brown bunny damask from the hushabye line.
i have created two quilts with this line and felt the need to add purple to both, because tula pink forgot to :) and afterall, purple goes with EVERYTHING! (huh, jenn?)




hushabye in its entirety:
the original plan was to use the soft lavender solid in the vertical and horizontal stripes; but, i sort of cut all the vertical strips one half inch too small and didn't have enough of the material to fix my mistake...so, i used a deep purple that i had on hand. it looks odd in the picture; but, i think in person it gives it some depth.





this is the second hush quilt.

i didn't like some of the fabrics that came in the kit, so i substituted in the:

pink with white dots
PURPLES!!!! YEAAA!
green with white dots

i really like the fussy cut owls in the four main diamonds






more close ups and the whole sha-bang...
i added the white border between the main square and the outer border just to give the eye a rest

below is an extra special project. the squares are all shared between some great ladies and myself. we each made two and traded our contributions around the globe. i sat on this for a while...you know...in the same position as rodin's "the thinker." and finally came up with a border of brown to unify each square and then added a great donated striped batik for the border.
hope you gals approve of the interpretation!

  2. amazing! you're such a great quilter! I LOVE the heart block, and that quilt in it's entirety of course, but that little heart block... is that a pattern? or your own design???

  3. The hushabye q's are 1-der-full, is this the one you used of Peppermint Patti's g-baby's quilt? AND to SAY THE LEAST, you have done justice to the "globe-trotters'" quilt. U are amazing.
