One more grey piece…

I keep saying I’m not going to make another Grey wall hanging, but here’s another one…I haven’t quilted it yet; I kind-of like it. Its the November Block.

I’ve also been working on my RMQG — 12×12 Color Challenge. I’ve picked red as my signature color. Its not really a “modern quilt,” more of an artsy wall hanging, but I like it.  I’m just showing a bit of it, the big reveal isn’t till the Dec. meeting. There’s a lot of beads and a lot of my other favorite thing to add to quilts…

More shades of grey….

Here’s another grey block of the month wall hanging. I was going to put them all into one quilt but decided, I don’t like grey enough. Anyway here’s the October block, “drunker path”, made modern…or at least my interpretation of a modern drunker path. The first little block is being turned into a wall hanging as well, still need to quilt it. Maybe next week.
I tried my hand at some big stitching, interesting…maybe to much…?
My sister came for a visit and we went to the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, they still have some roses that are blooming, beautiful

Another week done

And the weekend went by way to fast…I worked on a little painted wall hanging using Chalk paints. Very interesting affect. I got a jar at a new shop in Williamsburg, The Velvet Rocker, really nice couple Jim & Laura Tayman. Check out the store, lots of eye candy and the possibilities are endless. 5525 Olde Towne Road, Williwamsburg, VA, or on the web: The white flower is the chalk paint, I machine stitched out the design and then painted it in, different media…I’ll need to explore it more, but I like it.

After that I finished up another modern quilt block hanging. Third one done, one more to quilt. See the other 2 here. They are from the block of the month we are doing, loads of fun, thanks Susan.

Nothing to show but…

Another week has gone by

I have gotten a lot done just not many pictures to show for it. First off I’ve made a second Color Color wall hanging. The pattern is from Karen Sievert‘s book Prairie Point Pizzazz. Took a class from her a couple years ago wonderful teacher. I liked this quilt so much I had to make another one. Still needs to be quilted, but its getting there, love the colors and layout, thanks Ellen for the input. Alway good to get a second opinion.

I also worked on a couple modern sampler block wall hangings. Lots of quilting but really fun to do. Its part of the Richmond Modern Quilt Guilds, block of the mouth, I still need to do June’s and July’s blocks somehow I’ve missed them. The first picture is a close-up of the quilting. Had way to much fun doing these. If you’re in the Richmond, VA area, check out a meeting, third Friday of every month. The next meeting is September 19, 6:30

Monday Morning

And a good one it is!
I’ve been busy finishing up challenges and new quilts. The reveal for the Colonial Peicemaker’s Guild was Saturday, a lot of beautiful quilts. The Challenge this year was “Scrap – Book” Challenge – any thing we wanted that was inspired by a favorite childhood book, and made from only scraps that we had on hand. I did a whole cloth, free motion wall hanging and added paint to enhance the stitches. My book was The Secret Garden.


I also made a set of 4 placemats using a new template I got at Quilting Adentures here in Richmond. It was the Mini Hex N More by JayBird Quilts. Lots of fun and fast & easy.

Design wall Monday

I wouldn’t say I had a relaxing weekend but I did get a lot done. This long July 4th weekend was the deck restore weekend. Well actually its been the last 2 weekends. This was a ton of work but it sure made the deck look 100% better. Well worth it. After a week I can put the table and chairs back in place.

It wasn’t all work and no play…I did do some sewing. I got 12 more “Talking Turkey” blocks almost done. I have a total of 20 blocks, thats where I’m stopping, lol this block has a lot of pieces. Once I add the borders it will be a large lap quilt. I also started a background for this months ATC, July’s theme in Poetry… This summer is flying by.
