About Me

My photo
I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

New Year, Fresh Start Quilt Top #2

The status of the top as it is on my kitchen wall - I use a piece of flannel that has a nylon backside for a "design wall". It's tacked up there. I have played with the pieces since yesterday, now the strips need to be sewn into blocks in groups of 4 showing 16 little sqaures. The large beige blocks are to be embellished with antique or vintage laces, doilies, eyelet, linen. I will work on it more tonight, soup needs to be started for dinner.

Love your quilt blocks and your design wall idea! I so wish I was quilting, but I would feel so guilty to do another top when I have several still needing to be quilted. I may break down and machine quilt them. Why am I such a purist when it comes to that?

I really admire the style of quilt you are doing. I've always been amazed at people who make more artsy quilts. This one definitely falls in that category.

Loved your comment!
