IMG_20180416_110236332.jpg

I’m almost done! I still have to finish the last two corners, but it’s coming together quite nicely! I just love this silky print fabric! I know a lot of people say you can’t mix fabrics, but I’ve always been a renegade! I’ll admit, it wasn’t as easy as working with regular quilting fabric, but it also wasn’t terrible. Hopefully I’ll finish up the top this weekend! Wish me luck!

Untitled Blooming 9 Patch With Mixed Fabric

Last month was about working on quilts with knit fabric. This month is all about the silky print polyester! This piece is about one third of the way done, and hopefully I’ll have an updated photo for you by the end of the week. I’ll be honest it wasn’t easy, but now that I have it down, I’m really finding it easy to work with. I made a promise to myself to use of fabric in my stash, and this silky print has been in it for quite a while. there are about 5 bolts of other polyester fabrics I want to use up, and trust me, I already have designs for them, just need the time to sew them! Wish me luck!

Watching Netflix And Sewing

I’ve been binge watching “Hot Wet American Summer: First Day of Camp” on Netflix. It’s so bad, it’s good! Also while this amazing senseless drivel is pouring out of my laptop speakers, I’ve been sewing away on this Blooming 9 Patch! I just love the red-work vibe it’s giving off! The customer who ordered it said Red and White and do what I want. I’m so happy when people give me creative license. I feel so awesome about this quilt! I’ve almost got it all together, and hopefully I’ll start quilting it by tonight! Wish me luck!

I’m Working On A Blooming 9-Patch

I’ve been sewing away on this, and I thought I would post some pictures. I’m doing a white and red Blooming 9-patch and I wanted to give it a random chaotic kind of scrappy feel, so I mashed up a bunch of red fabrics I had. I think it is turning out just marvelous! Hopefully I’ll have the top finished by Saturday, and then I can quilt it Sunday. Wish me luck!

Dual Star: A New Kind Of Blooming 9 Patch

So everyone remembers Frozen Star. Well this is kind of like that, but different. Instead of one star, it’s going to be two. The background if going to be tan and brown. I’m not sure if I’m going to make both stars the same color or make each star a different color. What do you guys think? I’m either going to do both stars in turquoise, or one purple and one turquoise.

New Quilt Design

As I said earlier in a post, I did quite a few random quilt designs while in the hospital. I decided to take a break from sewing and to throw this design onto paint to see how it would look. It still needs some work. I might modify the 9 patch blocks to make the ripples appear rounder. I’m not quite sure yet. It is supposed to be a pebble being skipped across the water, so I would do dark blue and indigo fabrics for the dark water, light blue for the ripples, and then applique a pebble in the one corner. What does everyone think? Try to ignore the obvious grid.
