A finish – Escalator Quilt from Want It, Need It, Quilt It!

EscalatorQuiltAlbum1

I wanted to make a quilt using 2 1/2″ strips in a combination of low volume background prints and my favourite colours – turquoise, red and navy. What could be more perfect than a FQ bundle of Daysail by Bonnie and Camille for Moda? It was sitting in my Moda Shrine (cupboard I keep all my Moda pre-cuts) calling out to me, “use me, use me”.

I have not been able to do much sewing of late. Too many exciting projects going on which fill my days (more on that later). I really needed to sew and get this baby ...

{ A Scrumptious Baby Quilt } from {The Sweetest Dreams}

I've been hoping for someone to have a baby girl. The last two baby quilts I made were for little boys and, though I like boyish fabric, I've been holding on to some perfectly girlie  Scrumptious by Bonnie & Camille, just waiting for the right opportunity to use it.


I have a love affair with all Bonnie and Camille fabric. I can't help it. I think I've had a little of each line from Bliss forward and I'm still hoarding Ruby, I know sometime I''ll cut into it, but not yet.


The pattern I'm ...

La Passacaglia! from Hayling Quilts!

So this is the book that has my next project in. Millefiori Quilts by Willyne Hammerstein. It's bilingual, so one page is in French, the opposite page is translated into English and it's beautiful!

There are just so many quilts in here, all using English Paper piecing. All the templates are in the back full sized! Which I love because who wants to be messing around with enlargements on printers and all that jazz?

This is the quilt I'm going to make after the Under the Sea quilt is complete. La Passacaglia.


Lots of interlocking circles, made ...

Log Cabin Swap Fun from Moda Lissa

 Log Cabin Swap
 Several of you have asked about the Log Cabin Block swap
 so I thought I would share the details here.


 I found a few gull-able friends and decided to just put it out there to see if they wanted to make over-sized blocks, cut them into quarters and then swap. 
 Here is our my plan. It is pretty much the nuts and bolts type of information. You can disregard any of the swapping info.

RULES:(you know I don't like too many rules, I like to call them guidelines)
Colors? Think Minick & Simpson meets Bonnie & Camille ...

Smoky Mountains Vacation....and fabric from A Quilting Sheep

Hello, friends!! Last week, my hubby and I spent many wonderful hours in the great Smoky Mountains between TN and NC. It was so good to get away and to relax. 

The views were breathtaking...Photographs simply can't do them justice. We rented a Harley trike for a couple of days and took the Blue Ridge Parkway into Asheville, NC up and over Mount Pisgah. Now, I am a wee bit afraid of heights, but normally I am fine when my feet are on the ground. However, this road trip was an exception. The higher and higher into the ...
