Fall into a QAL Finish {2018-11-11}

Finishing up a quilt leaves me with such a happy feeling, especially when it is loved in the home.  My husband declares this quilt his favorite, with the deep fall colors and cozy flannel backing. This quilt-a-long taught me a lot about color and fabric selection.  I was more brave adding the bright green to … Continue reading Fall into a QAL Finish {2018-11-11}

Magnolia Mystery Quilt Finish {2018-10-25}

Way back in the day, I mean summer, I joined a mystery QAL hosted and designed by Meadow Mist Designs. I stayed up on the QAL through the months, though I surprise myself with every finish at how long it takes to actually get the quilt over the finish line.  Once the flimsy is finished, … Continue reading Magnolia Mystery Quilt Finish {2018-10-25}

I am back from Japan and enjoying settling into fall with the cooler weather helping set the mood here in the Bay Area.  Once fully caught up on work and projects, I intend to get a post out with all my Japanese fabric purchases but that is for another day.

Fall into a QAL Block 9, Turkey

Another great and fun block this week! Designed by Karen at Tu-Na Quilts, Postage Stamp Turkey block is composed of 64 2' finished squares.

Super excited … Continue reading Fall into a QAL Block 9, Turkey
