I've Been Tagged!

If you do not know Judy at Quilt Paradigm.
Let me introduce you!

Paradigm means-model, example and pattern.
Which is what Judy has created on her blog!

I stumbled onto her page and have been hooked.
I guess it can be called Blog Chemistry.
Whenever I see her post in my inbox, 
I know I am in for a creative treat! 

Here are a few recent pics from her blog. 
Hop on over to see her great posts.
Pretty sure you might end up following her as well!

Judy does her quilting on her domestic machine. 

I was lucky to be tagged by Judy to participate in the 
"Around The World Blog Hop" 
My big day is Monday August 4th.

The fun part about this blog hop is getting to meet other bloggers  and to hear and see what their creative & work process is.
Also I get to tag 3 blogs that I stalk enjoy reading & follow.

If you get a chance leave a comment on Judy's page,
I am sure she would love to hear from you.

Till We Quilt Again,

For The Winners!

Our guild recently had a challenge where 
I made the ribbons for the winners.

Since still having visions of the Olympics, 
I used their colors.

 So with the help of my mom, she embroidered the 
numbers onto the center hexagons.




Even though the colors to not correspondence with 
the number placement.

I was OK with this since it was more about the
 colors looking good combined!
Don't you agree?

I Am Wishy Washy!

What is going on?
Is this a quilters midlife crisis! 

The issue is that
recently I have been obsessed with low volume fabric.
This is my recent little splurge!

and lots of it.

Here is a collection of Kaffee hexi's & diamonds.

I have resigned myself to the fact that I 
need both to be happy!

So I plan to ride the Wishy Washy train for a long time!
All Aboard!

Save The Gingham!

In September I am participating in a blog hop. A portion of that post is for us to use gingham fabric from Riley Blake in some way.
Get this--they were considering discontinuing gingham fabric!


I will admit that the last time I used gingham was in a apron, 
in 7th grade in Home-Eco class. 
But you can't take it away!

So I am supporting the cause, here is what I am working on.

There will be over 50 blogs posting to show what they have created in September.

And not to bore you with details, I needed to added this little 
contraption fashion statement to my leg for the next two weeks. If I told you that I was laying around and getting allot of hand work done, that would be a lie! 
But what I will say-- is exercising can be dangerous to your health!

She's A Brick House

A few weeks back our guild held a challenge.

We were to make anything that consisted with the majority of rectangles in it and it was quilted.

My thought was-- rectangle boxy pouch with rectangle pieces of fabric.

friend referred to it as a "Brick House"

Needless to say
"Shes A Brick House" pops in my head every time I see it!

Here's The Plan!

Use these templates.....

To cut these fabrics......

To make this quilt.......

I've had these templates for way too long and 
thought it would work well on the gingham. 
I Hope!

This is my "Work In Progress"

Today was.............


it was in the 90's--but not on the water!

We Fished!

I read--the new McTavishing book.

 Pulled up to the 2 Mile Crab House for lunch to meet my mom.

Hijacked my mom for a ride. 
This is her friends boat house in Cape May
(this little house was published in a designer home magazine--the inside is amazing!)

Rode through the harbor and saw boats like my dad use to own! 

Went out in the bay with lots of dolphins. 

Came home and grilled a basil & Jersey tomato white pizza.
Caught fish today but they were not keepers!

To include a bit of fiber!
A few weeks back Bloomin Workshop had a giveaway 
to win a fat quarter bundle from American Made Brand.
And yeap, I was one of the winners.
Can't wait to play with this bundle!
