Hope everyone had a pleasant weekend. I spent mine sewing ~ On Saturday my LQS sponsored a Pillowcase Challenge
Day. I precut a bunch of novelty fabric and ended up using it all, 10 pillowcases, which means 10 yards out of my stash!
Then while waiting for my fabric to finish my Patchwork Party sampler quilt to arrive I started another kit in my stash. Another one I have no recollection of buying nor can I summon up why I would want to make a kite-themed quilt.
Here's the fabric,
I decided to use this pattern from Moda instead.
The blocks are large ~ 15 inches. And I like them better than the kites! My fabric came on Saturday late afternoon so I was able to add the sashing and cornerstones on Sunday.
I love how it's turning out, so soft and feminine looking. All I have left is a light pink tone-on-tone floral for an inner border and then the purple for the outer border.
And a pocket tissue holder I made for my daughter. I made the quilted fabric and somehow it came out all askew and with squares rather than diamonds.
Lastly, the back of a quilting book I found at the library featuring a men's quilted vest that I thought was a hoot! Can you imagine... LOL.
Thanks for visiting.
You've been very productive lately! I love that pink, purple and red quilt. It IS VERY lovely and feminine. Can't wait to see it with the borders on!
I love the replacement pattern for the kites. Those squares are beautiful.
My husband would not be caught dead wearing that vest. How funny is that?
You've been very busy! Everything looks wonderful.
I love your work. Your quilts are lovely, my dear. Lovae your fabrics. I'am from U.S.A. Happy Quilting!
Looks like it was a productive day at your LQS. Everything is just wonderful!! I love that kite quilt! I think I must have one of those vests....
Hi Marianne- your patchwork party looks fantastic! I think the pink around the blocks makes it!
Ha ha! I have that quilt book, and we have had many laughs over that quilted vest at retreats and classes. What a riot!
The kite quilt story cracks me up. I have a kit for a rail fence quilt that I bought when I first started quilting and I can't imagine what prompted me to do so. The fabric is hideous.
That vest is funny, but maybe we could get our husbands to wear an art quilt type of tie! The kites were cute, but the pattern you chose seems so much more timeless and I like it a lot better in your cheery fabrics.
Uh...I just got in from guild. We had singing quilter from Canada and her husband as our program. He was wearing a quilted vest! I wished I had remembered my camera!
I have to say that I liked the kite quilt. It would be perfect for spring.
The man's vest, on the other hand, is something I cannot see my DH wearing.
You have been busy!!!
Everything looks wonderful.
