You knew I had videos at my website right? I'm also on youtube for ages... follow along with me to see what's up!

I added two new videos on using my super cute new 4" SNACK SET templates!  Did you know you can MACHINE piece or hand piece?

 

You know people still hand piece right?   LOL  I love it on the airplane or car rides..small projects I can take along with me...  So much fun, with these easy to piece cuties! I have two quilts in the works right now... These little gems are quite sweet, and can be used as the start of a larger block or a whole quit just with the 4" size... Possibilities are endless!

I realize I still need to show some QuiltCon photos! We really had a lot of fun vending and being able to say HI to so many people!  Here's a few fun photos for you to see of our VFW Quilts booth. I also will be sharing pictures from my classes!  Amazing students doing some very fun things! Stay tuned!

 

If you look closely at the bunting, you will see they are my SNACK set blocks set in a  square in a square... SEE! Super cute!!

 

 

They also make great name tags, and mug rugs! (Did you see my last post?)

 

 

 

BTW, are any of you going to Paducah? 

 

I will be there! As will my "Mr. Swirl E. Bones", and this quilt, "Negative Space, Positive Attitude"! which I found out yesterday have been juried into the Paducah show!    YIPPEE! ( both quilted by my pal Shelly, at Prairiemoonquilts.com

 

(More details on Paducah to come! I have lots of exciting stuff going on at Paducah, including 30 Double Wedding Ring Quilts, and one 9' X 30' quilt! (yep!) (follow me at Instagram to see what's been up!)  and I hope to see you there!

Meadow Victory! September 05 2016, 0 Comments

 

HOME!

I'm always a bit sad when we leave our house, where we stay all summer, to head back to NYC. I love NYC, don't get me wrong, but it's so nice to have that break...  I love my summers at my home on long island.  BUT, good news is, we missed HERMINE!  YAY!  We bailed early as traffic is a nightmare as it is, and bad weather just makes it even more intense getting back to NYC... So we came back a day early.  But not before I got my tomatoes canned!  More salsa this year, as requested by my family!  So all is right. LOL! I'm whipping up a Meadow Storm in my studio anyway!

 

 

 

I came back to a clean studio! (Very Briefly! I fly to Paducah Wednesday!)  So I had to break into my MEADOW STORM fabrics!  Time to play! My Victory Block set is my current FAVORITE to play with.  SO many options with this block, today I was playing with piecing all the parts... ( you also get a full triangle if you didn't want to piece the bits...)

 

 

I cut random pieces, then I laid them out on my designs wall... Looks pretty good to me. 

Time o sew the V's!  (My walls are covered in Meadow Storm!!)

 

 

Having the dog eared templates makes for such fast easy piecing... I can chain piece these very quickly.

 

 

Next into halves, then, pin that center, and finish!

 

 

Four done!  I'm to sure what I'm making yet... Waiting for inspiration to strike! Yes, that's how I work! I never really know how a quilt will turnout... I just start making.... You can too! This is a perfect template set for scrappy quilt! SO many options! VICTORY!!!!!!

 

Here is another quilt I have in the works. Just scrappy blocks with a pink yellow blue and white palette, every one  a wile I just make another random block. I will figure out what happens to them later... For now. Just make.
