Working on my mini quilt for the Doll Quilt Swap over on flickr today. I used emedoodle’s 3 Layered Star paper piecing pattern. What do you think, partner?
If you’d like to join in or follow along, here’s the first lesson from the Pile o’ Fabric Skill Builder BOM. One lesson down and only 23 more to go. :-) I really enjoyed making these two blocks. I haven’t sandwiched and basted them yet, but I should get to that tonight. That’s the easy part! The first block is called Sound Wave. I love it. I’m so glad I chose the Macaw color palette! I always worry about how the colors and prints will mesh together but it really worked out just as I imagined it. I’ve done plenty … Continue reading
Hey look, it’s my First. Ever. WIP Wednesday post! I so rarely take pictures of items that I’m working on, usually reserving the “big reveal” for the finished product.

I’m still tweaking and finalizing the patterns, but here’s where they start: So…you … Continue reading
I still don’t know. Here’s the set that that I pulled to go with the hummingbird hues palette: The background on this one is grey. I do need to buy some more grey fabric, I’m running quite low. And here’s the set that I pulled to go with the macaw hues palette: For this one, I think the background will be natural and the 4th color will be white. I’m not keen on making an entire quilt with a white background, and I like the idea of the white ‘popping’. I could pick up a few white-on-white fabrics or some … Continue reading
