Sweet Sixteen

I finished all 16 Starlett blocks and I love each and every one!20170418_204407 (1)

As is, the quilt will finish at 72.5″ square which is not quite large enough to fit a queen size bed and have some drape to it.  I don’t want to add ultra wide borders so I’ll be adding sashing between the blocks and narrower borders.

I auditioned this light purple, which would work, but my customer prefers something in a blue tone.20170417_183953 (2)

It’s Been A Long While…

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I’ve written a blog post!

I finally finished binding Walk Like An Egyptian last night!

I made these B&W blocks for a community project we are doing at Quilters Anonymous, my chapter of the Arizona Quilters Guild.  David helped a bit w/these blocks.

And…I’ve finished this flimsy for a commission due at the end of March!  I’m calling it Cats Galore! The border fabric inspired the entire quilt! It’s perfect, because the recipient loves cats and her favorite color is blue!

And lastly, the cutest new addition ever…my grandson TJ!  He was born on Feb 12th, weighing in at 8lbs 4oz, measuring 20 3/4in long! 

 His quilt goes perfectly w/the crib bumper!
That’s all I have for now. Until next time, Happy Quilting and God Bless!
