My Life, New Pattern Sample, Quilt Market

Sorry for yet another interruption…

I finished the sample that I was working on with the “extra” black charm squares from yesterday’s interruption post. Do you remember that chat?  Anyway, during the disappointing World Series Game #4, I put the hand stitches on the binding.

I like this outcome more than the Cardinals’ outcome.

It’s a sample of my new “A Pretty Plate” quilt using my “Mini Dresden Plate Plexi Template” that I introduced at spring market.

Notice how I used the black charm squares in the corners instead of more 4 patches?  I thought it would tie in the black centers of the Dresden plates.

Gotta love the bright spring-like fabrics.  Am I the only one that doesn’t enjoy this time of year because I know winter is just around the corner???

 I’m so not looking forward to W-I-N-T-E-R!!!

Yes, it’s another Amelia fabric sample.  It will look nice sitting right close to all the others later this week in my booth at Houston.

Hopefully the Cardinals will have a better night tonight.

Until next time,


New quilt pattern, Quilt Market

New pattern #5 for Market

If you guessed my next pattern would be about dad,

you were right!

In Season for Father’s Day,

I used civil war prints for the vest & border on this quilt to add a bit of male sophistication.

In another life-time (or so it seems looking back) I made applique towels for family, friends & craft shows.  Even back then I did a lot of seasonal sewing. My following had towels for pretty much every season, but several asked for something to hang for Father’s Day.  That’s when I came up with a vest and bow tie for the month of June.  This is a dressed up version!

Until next time,
