March – Twice Around the Block VQB

Crosses for Katie

March was Katie’s month for our Twice Around the Block virtual quilting bee. She sent us some great fabric and asked us to make crosses in sizes from 3″ to 7″. She said wonky or regular was ok, so I made a few of both. I’ve never made crosses before, so I read this tutorial and was quickly on my way.

I hope you like them Katie!

Solids Sneak Peek

Off-Centered Squares Solids

The beginning of my next quilt – and my first solids quilt! For some reason I have never made a quilt from all solids but it was one of the things on my list of goals for 2011. I’m using my Off-Centered Squares pattern which I used last month with Anna Maria Horner’s Innocent Crush line.

Eight of the solids used in this new quilt are from this Moda cross weave bundle at The Fabric Quarter. (Flamingo, Lipstick, Scarlet, Coral, Apple, Spearmint, Ocean, Sky.) The tan is Essex Linen in Sand, purchased from Keri at Sew Deerly Loved on Etsy. The white is Kona White. The colors are so fresh and the fabric is lightweight, I think this will be the perfect quilt for Spring.

My iron died this week which really put a damper on my ability to sew much of anything, but a new one has arrived so I am back in business. More to come soon!

Princess Progress

42 Far, Far, Away II blocks squared up and ready to go. This fabric is just so beautiful. Every time I cut into a piece, I felt as if I were working with a piece of fine art. I’ve slightly changed my plan regarding what I’m going to do with these….hopefully you will see the finished quilt soon!
