Friend's on Friday -Valencia

Valencia made this beautifully bold quilt.

This is one of two quilts I recently quilted for her. 

Valencia is making a quilt for each of her grandchildren.

 She pieces all of her backs, using interesting fabrics. 
It is hard to see but she used some 
Wonder Women comic fabric, which is so much fun! 

Pattern-HST & Nine Patch Blocks
Size-90 X 108 1/2
Batting- Warm & Natural
Quilting-Panto-"Whole Lotta Love"

Thanks For The Reminder!

I am wondering.......
how many times I can rip a project apart before it falls apart?

Our quilt guild recently sent us a reminder that I am to have a UFO completed for our September meeting.

Above is the pile of hst's that I committed to finish!

What is wrong with me?
By the time I am done ripping and re-ripping, there will be nothing left!!

Alright, I Confess!

Amy of at 13 Spools spilled some of her 
Quilty little secrets. 

quilty secrets

Here is mine!

1). Don't wash fabrics. Maybe a red here and there-but I rarely sew with red!

2). I also sew with pins in.--Shoot me!

3.) I never-ever buy fabric for a project all at one time. If you saw my stash you would know why!

4.) I have the hardest time with the word SCANT-What the bleep is it? In toddle language please!

5.) Math scares me--I avoid it at all cost!

6.) Prefer not to sew on domestic machine-wearing shoes-but always in socks. It must be the semi- rebel in me wanting freedom to wiggle my toes. This could be analysed!

7.) Why can't I get this! There has to be a easy explanation to finding the Bias--Help me!

8.) A little obsessed with organizing the sewing notions, sewing room and fabric. The rest of the house--not so much!

9.) I sew in bed! I know a bit freaky--but I enjoy watching TV and having my hex's, knitting or binding near by!

10.) I just received a iPad!! I feel the adrenaline every time I turn it on!  I know there is going to be a secret here but I am not sure what it is yet!  Some of you might want to fill me in on your favorites (just say-in!).

Flash Back Friday!

For as simple as this quilt was to sew--it was a challenge for me.
Between the colors being used and quilting choices.  These two quilts were my introduction into the modern style of quilting in negative space. For the full story plus detailed photos click Here.

What I learned:
Inspiration & ideas eventually come when thought over enough (well several months).
Not to be afraid of solids.
Know that it will not be perfect & that is OK!

Martha made this awhile back for a little girl.

She wanted a loopy meander.

 Could not get this to be right side up!

Happy To Have Found!

Last week I participated in the  "Around The World Blog Hop". I got to tag three Bloggers that I enjoy reading. Today they will fill you in on some of their creative processes and show their amazing talent. I am sure you will be just as happy to have found these fantastic quilters as I have been!
