don't look LIZZY!!!!

 Okay, so...I wanted to dedicate this post to my friend, Lizzy, simply because i could not stop thinking of her the ENTIRE time i was working on this quilt.  she tells me she is "afraid" of using bold colors in her creations; which i find ironic since she is one of the most colorful and lively women i know.  so...adjust your screen, Lizzy...

this second quilt is a hidden stars log cabin style.  i added the solid purple-maroon to accentuate the stars and centers of the logs.  i just love the flow of the colors and patterns of the new Denise Schmidt Hope Valley line.  it's not the typical design that i am usually drawn to; but, find the fabrics both calm and stimulating at the same time.  the back is a solid grey, which i think is more soothing than depressing, as a grey can sometimes be...


  1. OMG - as usual - simply gorgeous. Your imagination continues to amaze me and your work(wo)manship is SO purrfect!!!!!

  2. OMG OMG OMG!!!! They are absolutely beautiful... Love that you only used polka dot fabrics on the bright one ;)
