This is Brenda! How many of you remember earlier this year when I was teaching in Alpharetta, Georgia, and there was a lucky gal who’s hubby flew her down from Oregon as an anniversary gift to come take some workshops?
YES! This is the same Brenda! And I knew I knew her – but I couldn’t place from where. What a happy reunion!
I'm now on HER stomping grounds. How fun!
Here she is showing her very scrappy and very wonderful Strip Twist quilt. Seriously, this is one of the easiest quilts ever to make. The pattern is up under the free patterns tab at the top of the blog. I designed this long before Jelly Rolls were invented as a charity quilt workshop for my guild, trying to find a way to make all of the *ahem* lovely donated fabrics work together. This is another one where the more you throw in, the better it works. Check it out!
We had a Twin Sized Cathedral Stars in the house!
Another free one from the free patterns tab!
Orca Bay was in the house!! So pretty!
Orca Bay is found in String Fling.
((I am seriously wanting to do some more quilts with string piecing in them! SO FUN!))
Lazy Sunday was in the house!
Isn’t her border fabric perfect??
Another great Easy Street!
Another great Strip Twist!
Pink & brown baskets! Lovely!
A lovely version of Easy Street!
With the pink and yellow in this one, I’d call it Pink Lemonade!
Would you believe this is Carolina Christmas?
Carolina Christmas was an earlier mystery and is now found in Scraps & Shirttails II!
Another great Easy Street, just waiting for borders!
I so love seeing them, each and every one!
A variation of Split 9-patch!
Close up on this one….
This would be another way to do our Split 9 patch Leader & Ender Challenge! In this variation the center square is a solid square, instead of a half-square triangle. LESS triangles to make! LOL! This way each block only requires two half-square triangle units instead of three. Don’t you love this layout? WOW! Check out the free patterns tab for Split 9-patch instructions for this year’s leader & ender challenge.
Very fun scrappy bricks with black!
Square in a square! I love the colors in this one ---
A bright and happy Bricks & Stepping Stones!
((Check out the free patterns tab at the top of the blog for this one!))
I am sew inspired and ready to get going this morning. If I am coming to your area, please bring show & tell to class! I love sharing at the end of lunch to get our juices flowing before getting back to our machines.
Sadie and I have already had our morning walk. This was the view from the deck this morning:
The morning sun is shining down on the most perfect day!
On the way back from our walk, Sadie saw what I didn’t ----and her bark sent 3 large deer bounding out of our yard and off into the trees. All I saw was 3 white tails, and long legs from behind.
I so love it here!
Have a great friday, everyone – time to get a shower and go sew my brains out
