Beans!

Jimmy Beans Knit Club for Jan-Mar.  It was the Moxie cowl and I was a little intimidated because of all of the different knit patterns.  I love it!

March Ramona

This is my March Ramona block.  I made center block twice because I didn't like my points chopped off. Grrrrr.

Isn't this cute?  It's an Jan Patek pattern I've been wanting to make for ages!

Horrible picture of a cute quilt

 So I have loved this quilt pattern and fabric for a long time.  This is Wee Wander fabric by Sarah Jane.   And the pattern is Wee Wander Firefly Quilt by Amy Smart.  Isn't it adorable?  I changed the pattern by not using the pink or orange fabric.  I wanted this to feel dusky like I was really hunting fireflies.

The picture is a horrible, poor light at night, cell phone picture.  The quilt is actually really cute and the colors are much brighter and more saturated.  I'll try to replace it when I get a better shot.

Barn Star

So I finally finished my Barn Star (decided to call it that today when I was sewing the last two seams!).  I really like it.  All I need to do now is get backing and batting and send it off to Karen the Quilter.  Nearly all, if not all, of these fabrics are Jo Morton.

Big star


This is a project I started in November (I think).  I made a Sparkle Plenty quilt several years ago to hang on the wall behind my Christmas tree (the empty wall looked too desolate!).  Well, last year I washed that quilt with a yard of PFD fabric. Guess what happened?  All of the green fabric bled and permanently stained the muslin.  I tried for weeks to get it out but the quilt was ruined.












So this year I decided to make a new quilt.  I had seen a glimpse of a red, green and gold quilt that looked Christmas-y but not overtly so.  I think I saw it in an add for a Kim Diehl book.  It's all made of HSTs so I figured I could easily make one-plus I could mostly use fabric I already had.  So here you can see my HSTs laid out on my bed.  Last night I sewed the middle of the quilt together.  Looks good!
