Simple Curves

Drunkards Path quilt block

What are simple curves? Where two pieces become one… square unit/block.  Like a Drunkards Path unit.

Mini Masterpieces: Triangles from Blossom Heart Quilts

The second section of Mini Masterpieces is all about triangles – half-square triangles, flying geese, and half-rectangle triangles. It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of triangles and what they add to a quilt design with the dynamic angles they create!

Started a new one... from ~ CowgirlQuilter ~

 Thanks for the wonderful comments on my SIL's quilt.  :)  She gave it to my brother and he loved it.  :)

I worked on my applique block.  I had it ironed to the background but hadn't stitched around it.  I got all of the green done but not the tulips yet.  After I get this first block done I will prep another.
