What's in the works?

Not in these colors. Not with these fabrics.
Not with this border.

But you get the idea. It's all cut out and some of the sashing is in progress. Those little squares are 2 1/2 inches and I'm using a dozen different fabrics. The last to be cut will be the big squares, and assembly should be fast.

I wanted a quilt that would showcase some of my favorite fabrics that I collected in 2006.

Can't wait to show you.

Wow ~ where have I been?


I've been squirrely.

I was gonna move and was half-way into packing when it occurred to me that I was happy in this apartment and didn't want to leave. So I had to undo all I had done, cancel all I had arranged for, and settle back in.

In the meantime the clock was ticking on finishing the Sis Boom Pow blocks....done and in the mail.

The clock was ticking on finishing some pillows for my cousin's daughters who are both away at school....done and mailed.

And I was anxious to get back to a quilt I had started piecing months ago and then abandoned.

So, how are you?
