Sally’s Wild Kaffe Fassett Fan Dance Quilt from Quilted Joy

Is there a style – in quilting, fabric, art, decor, or anything – that always grabs your attention? For me it’s bright , bold color palettes. So when Sally asked me to custom quilt her Kaffe Fassett Fan Dance quilt I melted and said “OK!!” Don’t you just love the vibrancy and playfulness of the fabrics in Sally’s quilt?

Fan Dance Quilt, quilted by Angela Huffman Quilted Joy

This quilt looks like it was a lot of fun to make. It’s such a striking design with the colored Dresden fans moving across the quilt. And of course those Kaffe Fassett fabrics always draw me in for a closer ...

Square Dance with AGF Selva from Expect Moore

Recently, I had the chance to play with one of Art Gallery Fabrics’ new lines, Selva. This fun, jungle inspired print was perfect for a quilt that I’d been bouncing around in my mind. Ever since I stitched up the “Square Dance” quilt for the Leisure Arts “Modern Patchwork” book, I’d been wanting to make a new version of the quilt.

UFO (UnFinished Object) Friday

The last 6 months life has not been at the normal pace for me with loads of things coming up that I didn't plan for. Which have taken time and energy.  And Energy and Time.. and did I say energy yet? how about time?

  • A big fat zero.
  • I was not able to work on any UFOs.  I might have actually started a new project. Or two (it's a work project)

rsc letters from Making A Lather

My hubby made pickled green tomatoes with some masterful coaching from me. I have always felt bad about the tomatoes at the end of the season, that we don't get harvested. If these are yummy, we may have found the answer. I want to try a green tomato salsa as well. We still have more than enough red tomatoes to eat and maybe still can for the winter.


I have met a bit with my quilting friends, and since I still can't take my machine with back limitations, I used the time to cut some more letters for ...

Bundaleer Logs 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 from Virtual Quilter

Back to three basic Log Cabin blocks … all light, all dark, and the common half light, half dark.

I started this series in EQ7, shared the first five designs, then it got lost in the clutter. I wonder how many more project files are in hiding?

These designs would be great if you have lots of light fabric, and not a lot of dark fabric, though I am sure that we would always be happy to go shopping for more fabric.

I like this one …

… but I think this one is the favourite for today’s selection.

Though I like ...
