Done! But Not That Modern.

I finished my mother's quilt, just in time! She loved it! I used Sawtooth Stars, and some of the fabrics were modern, it it really is a more traditional quilt. What do you think?

Almost done with my mother's quilt!

She wanted stars, so I made 18 sawtooth stars, and then set them with blocks in between. I was originally going to make 36 stars, but I ran out of time and energy. Here is one of the stars - I made them modern with some awesome modern fabrics bought at KC Framing and Fabrics in Saratoga Springs. The women there have great taste in fabrics and it has become my go-to place for fresh, fun fabrics! They also have a Frequent Buyers Program: once you spend $200, you get a $20 gift certificate! I love that, and it is surprisingly easy (gulp!) for fabric addicts such as myself to spend $200.

My blue and white quilt!

I have wanted a blue and white quilt for a while, so I started one today. I think I am going to do a sampler. This is the first block, the ribbon star, from www.freshlemonquilts.com. I tried it breaking up the star, and then with the shades matching, and asked my husband for his help. He did not understand what I was asking, so I took pictures, and decided that way.

Finally, I decided, and here is my first block. I was tired, it is VERY sloppy, so I am going to redo it tomorrow night. It is shamefully bad. :) Peace.





Modern star blocks for table runner

Hi all,
I had this around for a while, and I had to take out all of the free motion quilting I had put in, as it was all loose and nest-y. I sat down with a cup of coffee and some Tudors action, and just did it. I love the colors, and these fabrics started my love affair with polkas dots, which continues to this day. I am keeping this one!

Dream Block!

So I dreamt this block in a dream last night, and when I got up, I had to make it. It is a little too literal "red cross," but it is a starting point!
