Hello again. I'll tell you about the last couple of weeks by going through my photos on my phone. Polly, myself, Jennifer and Steve Keltner had a nice treat 2 weeks ago. We watched a University of Michigan football game together. We had spiffy seats. I'll probably never get to watch a game in that kind of comfort again. A good time was had by all. What you see here is the halftime show paying homage to Veterans.
I put several works in progress up on my design wall to see how they are getting along. I haven't shown this one before on the blog. It's a BOM from Australia called the Rowdy Flat Library Quilt. It's kind of eccentric and very, very fun. I went off in a totally different color palette (trying to channel my inner Australian). There are 3 more big blocks to go - plus an appliqué border. It's excess on top of excess.
This is the progress so far on my Star A Day quilt. Only 2 more blocks to go. It's all made with Minick and Simpson scraps and despite using hundreds of different fabrics - it is quite cohesive. Just a reminder that all Minick and Simpson fabrics will work together. For those of you looking for the pattern - we are currently sold out - but I will be stocking up on more next month at Quilt Market. The next time I post an in-progress photo of this quilt - we will have the patterns back in stock.
I have added to my personal library with these 4 beauties. The top 2 are artist studios and home decor and then the new Kaffe Fassett book and the new Gwen Marston book from Martingale. There is so much inspiration in all of them.
Jennifer Keltner and Brent Kane took tons of gorgeous photos. Don't let these pics taken on my iPhone prejudice you on the beauty.
This is my Mrs. Billings Coverlet looking spiffy on a great bed.
This is one of Polly's new rugs looking spectacular over a cupboard. These are just a small drop in the bucket of pictures. We can't wait to see it all put together.
In other news..... I'm breaking in my new pair of Quilt Market shoes.
