I am joining Jessica Dayon on a book blog hop
for her new book, Seasons to Taste. I received an advance copy and had a hard time picking which one to make. I choose Sunkissed. I love the yellow and white but
how could I scrap it up some?
I knew the colors I wanted to use, so I started with scraps from one of my quilts in Sisterhood of Scraps and combined them with a quilt that will be in Scrap School this Feb. Pulling these fabrics was fun to think about and how different they look with a few added fabrics.
Originally some of the colors I added were a little out of my comfort zone but they added some “clash factor” took on a life of their own.
Even the trimmings look dreamy!
Adding Low Volume for backgrounds and sashing allowed me to do a deep dive into my fabrics and include a huge variety of lights.
And while I was at it I had fun creating a pieced back. Maggi Honeyman worked her magic on the quilting!
In case you missed it here are the other people on the blog hop.
Seasons to Taste is available now from your favorite book retailer.
There were times in my life that I hated the term progress report. You know, there was always that one class that was problematic or maybe I was problematic as the student.
I can’t think of any better term for holding myself accountable and logging my progress than “progress report” to keep me on track.
The cool thing is that I get to give myself my own grade.
This week I received a B-.
I have finished a few projects, started a few new ones and completely ignored others.
More blocks for my red and white quilt.
Deadline- Valentines. Very Close!!
The kids did finish “making” a quilt for their mom for Christmas. It counts right, even if it is a preprinted panel that they helped me pin and sew like a pillow. They did tie it with yarn and color some of the shapes.
Finished, Completed and Gifted
I am joining Jessica Dayon on a book blog hop for her new book, Seasons to Taste. I received an advance copy and will be making a project to showcase Feb. 2nd. I knew the colors I wanted to use, so I started with scraps from one of my quilts in Sisterhood of Scraps and combined them with a quilt that will be in Scrap School this Feb. Pulling these fabrics was fun to think about and how different they look with a few added fabrics. deadline- end of Jan.
This one is where I have to give myself a failing grade. Usually I stay on task, but the deadline had come and gone. I had set it aside all nice and organized, and I was fairly close to finishing. I just have to do the airplanes. I am just not feeling it. Stay Tuned.
I am obsessed with all the Quilt Alongs, so here is my list.
I have my blocks completed but no idea how I am going to set them all together.
Blockheads has been going on for an entire year. I have loved being a part of this and have seen so many color interpretations of the blocks that makes me want to start all over.
Blockheads posts EVERY WEDNESDAY. You can get all the patterns on Moda’s blog.
It is never too late to start if you have not joined in, but don’t worry we have something fun planned for the next Blockheads series.
I am tickled pink to be included as one of the SEWCIALITES on Fat Quarter Shops, weekly QAL. POSTS EVERY FRIDAY.
I am way ahead on this project and have the greatest idea on how to quilt it.
Hope it works and if so I can’t wait to share it.
Another QAL I have joined is the Bonnie and Camille are hosting their new book, Quilt Bee.
I am a sucker for anything Bonnie and Camille. The directions in this book are so well written and easy to follow. For more info about the QAL, visit their INSTAGRAM.
What are you working on? Did you make a resolution to finish more of your UFO’s? Resolutions or not, I am just so thankful that I have quilting as a creative therapy outlet especially during 2020.
