I'm feeling a little bit more confident about sewing curves now. I remembered to mark extra matching points this time and to sew my smallest stitches. I am going to try B-2 Sweet Tater Pie next...

WOBQ progress and a new project????

I bought my background fabric for my WOBQ and got it laid out now to pin it... I thought that I would take a quick photo so you can see it laid out. I still can't quite fit the whole thing in a photo yet...
I just received this fabric and want to do something fun with it...I am thinking maybe pinwheel and/or attic window blocks...I will experiment with EQ6 later to see what I can come up with!

I just loved this Debbie Mumm Fabric and picked the other fabrics for the four patch to blend with it...
The little black and white kitty is my favorite..or maybe its the tan puppy or the polka dot kitty... LOL
Here is a little closer picture of the raggedies...

A-3 Hunters Moon

A-3 Hunters Moon Block
I made a Dear Jane block today. I pieced this one trying to remember my lessons from Linda Franz's DVD about curved piecing. I forgot to mark additional matching points until I cut the pattern apart and ironed on the fabric. But, I think it came out alright and I'm happy to be working on my Dear Jane quilt again! My new numbers are 41,21,3,1337!


I haven't posted in quite a while. I have been busy working on a few quilt projects...A scrap quilt, Siggies for the Dear Jane swap, My WOBQ top. my first "rag" quilt and the Sylvia's Bridal Quilt BOW...

I finished the top for my "WOBQ" yesterday and am going to quilt it myself with a flowery vine pattern that I drew. I will have to practice first and post a bigger picture of it later!

The scrap quilt I am working on is from a "scrap mystery quilt swap" with an online group. I have finished sewing blocks and now I'm deciding on how to position the blocks. This was a wonderful quilt to work on as it pushed me seriously out of my comfort zone. I received fabric in this swap that I never would have purchased and never would have considered putting in a quilt with the other fabrics that I received. LOL! I bought a light polka dot backing fabric and jumped in...The only rule that I made for myself as I was sewing was not to use any of the same fabrics in a single block... I think that I am going to truly love this quilt when it is finished.

I am still clipping the seams for my "Rag quilt" and will post another picture after it is washed and dried and achieved the proper raggidiness!
Have a lovely Day!
