Max -- you have been busy. I love the multi-coloured star quilt. Did you use marbles blenders? I couldn't quite tell. Anyway, really classy.
Debbie - I like the soft colours in your patch and the arrangement of triangles. Hadn't seen that pattern before.
I haven't done any sewing the past few days. It's kind of silly, but without Elgar-dog here, I find I'm sort of walking around in a bit of a fog, and every time I pick something up to work on it seems so difficult, even easy patterns. Also, when I sewed he always laid right at my side as an encouraging presence. I buried him two weeks ago today so I know this sadness will pass, but right now I'm rather immobilized. But I am enjoying seeing what everyone else is working on, and I know I'll be back to sewing soon.
The fabric for the star quilt is all from a Robert Kaufman line called "Fresco". These colors were from the dark colorway. I found the pattern in a tutorial on Missouri Star Quilt Company. Search their site for 'Jelly Roll Star'. It's a VERY easy pattern. Each star is one strip from a jelly roll, one strip equals one star. And best of all, for me at least, NO HSTs!
I understand how much you miss your pal. TIme helps. (((hugs)))
Brigit-Carol, is that a picture of your dog on you avatar? He looks so sweet. It's hard to lose such a close companion. Thinking of you.
Here is my completed baby quilt, for a co-worker. Everything used was from my stash. I am pleased with how the back fabric was such a good match.
Patti, your baby quilt is just beyond beautiful. I love that butterfly.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
Oh my, I love that butterfly quilt. Is the butterfly paper pieced? I really do need to learn that method. I haven't finished last year's Craftsy's BOM and the last two blocks are paper pieced. I really need to just make myself sit down and do it.
Yes, my avatar is a pic Elgar when he was about 3 years old. I just love the happy expression on his face. He was an incredible dog -- smart, intuitive and not a stubborn bone in his body. We were together for 16 years.
Brigit Carol, been there, done that. But, I never hesitate to find another forever furbaby. We just need them in our life. So sad for you. Prayers.
Patti, Oh, My!! This quilt is just breathtaking!. You should be so very proud of your artistic endeavor here.
Been working on my "Sarah's Wedding Quilt" for my daughter, Sarah's wedding the date is April 26, 2014. Here is the progress thus far.
There are eight of these diamonds. I have one more row or 4 strips to add to each one it will be a 3 inche strip. started out with 1 1/2 inch strips. And here is a pic of what the finished quilt.
Beautiful baby quilt Patti. Love your butterfly.
Brigit-Carol:Yes, my avatar is a pic Elgar when he was about 3 years old.
Ahhh, sweet pooch. Those of us who love our pets beyond all reason understand your loss.
That's going to be beautiful Donna.
Donna, the wedding quilt is going to be lovely. I really like the way the colors blend. Perfect.
