One of my favorite quilts that I made last year went into the April/May issue of Quilt Magazine. This one is paper pieced, and a Benartex line called "Bold and Beautiful"
I quilted this one with a contemporary design and the blocks were paper pieced. I love to combine traditional patterns with contemporary fabrics.
I can't believe I got so far behind in my posting! It has been such a busy year, so I hope you don't mind if I just catch up the work I've been doing all at once for you to see!
This one is called Flowers for Odessa, an RJR fabric.
This Starring Kitties was in the last issue of Mc Call's quick quilts. A fun and easy project with a border print.
LASTLY, the cover for last fall's Best of Quilts for Christmas issue by Quilter's Newsletter. I was so excited about this cover! The quilt used this Quilting Treasures panel print of Christmas Trees and has always been a favorite for me. Easy paper piecing but it does take time with the border.
Ok, now that's it! You can see I've had a lot going on, but I hate missing out on blog time with all of you and searching through all my favorite blogs too. Now there is also Pinterest on the web so what is a body to do? So much wonderful information for all of us out there just full of inspiration! I have so much to show you and share, but I think I better save it for the next post! I should be posting more regularly again and the world is full of more than I can possibly do that I want to do! But I have some fun upcoming projects to share, of modge podge on an old suitcase, spray painting a new file cabinet and my sewing room is looking mighty different these days! I'm also working on a really cute Halloween cross stitch that I'll be sharing soon. Hope you are all having a great year so far, and I hope to be back soon. Thanks for not giving up on me---and keep quilting!!
