one finish and a couple new things

 I just managed to get a quick shot of this - all quilted up, bound, and washed - before I delivered it to my chiropractor, Cathy, who is currently being treated for breast cancer.

Very basic machine quilting - ITD between blocks, diagonal grid through the blocks, and "petals", "pumpkin seeds", "orange peels", or whatever you want to call them, in the alt. blocks. It probably should have been quilted a little denser for a better crinkle effect, but I think this will be OK.

 Meanwhile, my Stars in a Time Warp were nagging at me. So yesterday I started messing around with some layout ideas.  Here's a little peek of its current state of being, mostly still un-sewn.

I actually have three more stars to make before I can begin sewing it all together. Then I can start experimenting with some border ideas, a few of which are already brewing in my mind.

And... just for fun, here's a little mini I made over the weekend.

Sometimes you just have to indulge yourself and make a mini. You know what I mean?



  1. What a cute mini, love the mauve fabrics.

  2. Wonderful quilts, made with love.
    I agree, I think I feel a mini quilt session coming on!

  3. I think your friend will love that nine patch quilt--simple and sweet! I love the setting you have going for your Stars in a Time Warp--very cool!

  4. I love the Nine Patch! Your friend will find comfort in receiving such a heartwarming gift!
