Sweet Persimmons from Nestlings By Robin

I have never had a persimmon 
and maybe I should try 
one now that I have named 
a quilt after them:)
New in the November
issue of AQ Magazine
meet Sweet Persimmons.
This sweet design started 
out in a 30s rendition.

Once I started thinking in Autumn
colors, I came up with this palette.
Still really like it and may have
to put this grouping to work
in another project!

Looks great, right?

Sometimes I can't see past my 
own vision but I also had 
this Sandy Gervais print sitting
around that I had been wanting 
to use in ...

since this began.

Beach Glass from Nestlings By Robin

Available now....
This is Beach Glass, a fun easy quilt
that will look fantastic in any color way
and has many design options!
It came about through a call for 
submissions from Annie's.
They were looking for quilts
that had one block versatile enough
to create multiple quilts just
by "twisting and turning" the blocks.
VIOLA'!

Once a color way was chosen,
I made a test block to verify
there would be enough value 
differentiation.
I found my perfect fabric with 
Connecting Threads in their
Sea From Space collection
which is All Batiks!
Easy way to verify you are ...
