The Holidays are behind us, the house is all put back together, and it's time to get back to quilting!
How many of you purchased some of the wonderful line of fabric from French General called Rouenneries? I've had a fat quarter collection just begging to be made into something beautiful for weeks. This fabric has a rich, linen-like feel, which makes it a pleasure to work with.
When Joe sees the pasta dryer coming out of the cupboard, his first thought is fettuccine alfredo...NOT.....it's strip quilting time. ( I'm trying to convince him that quilting is much healthier for us.) The pasta dryer is the best invention for handling lots and lots of fabric strips.
This fabric lends itself to a wonderful medallion-like center for an 8-1/2" block.
I want to have this quilt done and hanging in the shop before Valentine's Day. So stay tuned to see how I'm going to set these blocks.
I've got multiple projects going right now. I always have a pieced quilt going while working on an applique project, just so I can see some progress since applique quilts seem to be completed at glacial speed!
Speaking of applique projects, the Party in the Garden blocks are coming together nicely. I'll be sharing more pictures soon.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
