Design Wall Monday–August 25, 2014

Not exactly my design wall but all layered, pin basted and ready to go under the needle and be quilted.  This is a 4 patch kaleidoscope set in a shadow box.  The fabric I used is an Alexander Henry called El Burrito.


I wanted to showcase the leftover fabric on the back so I made a giant 4 patch kaleidoscope so that you get a better appreciation of what the fabric looks like.


I’m teaching today and then I have to finish up some round robins that are due next week but hopefully I’ll get to start quilting this by the end of the week.

The Blocks Are Made

I finally finished my log cabin blocks. 


I ended up making 39 (I think) log cabin blocks and plus who knows how many others blocks throughout the year for my Amish With A Twist block of the month.


All the blocks are now made and it’s time to move on to Month 13 which is the borders.


I need to cut up a whole bunch of 2 1/2” squares and start sewing them together but I think the end is in sight.

An Itty Bitty Pincushion

While my sister was visiting we made Hexagon Travel Bags.  The closure is a magnetic snap.  My sister made us cute little hexi pincushions that have a magnetic snap on the back.  When you have the travel bag open you can snap the pin cushion right in place.



You can find the Hexagon Travel Bag tutorial here

A big thank you to my sister Melinda for making me the pincushion and helping me make my bag.

Design Wall Monday–August 18, 2018

A while back, I saw a picture of a quilt top that inspired me to make this.

El Burrito

I’m calling in El Burrito, named after the fabric which is an Alexander Henry fabric from a few years ago. 

I love how it turned out.  Now it moves to the “to be quilted” pile.
