Zig Zag!


My sewing buddy Julie comes over and sews 
withme as often as we can get together 
and I helped her make this masculine 
Zig Zag quilt for her Nephew. 

 We busted a whole bunch of
black and white scraps and paired it with Kona Chinese Red and some Gray...


Then she used up more scraps making a scrappy border...shes really come a long way with her quilting skills, I think she did a wonderful job 
on this one!  I think her nephew will love it!


 Heres a close up of my longarm quilting, I did a medium sized Meander/Stipple in gray thread.  
It turned out great dont you think??

Great job Julie!

P.S. Now I get to trim and bind it for her!

I am almost scared to mention that the longarm
is up and working right now....dont want 
to jinx myself!  Its all because of this Studmuffin
who came up to my house from Meissners Sacramento and helped me tremendously!

Thanks Karl!!


Hallelujah!!!

New project...


I know I know...another new project...
I just cant resist!

I love these Paper Pieced Lonestar blocks...
They are one of my favorite blocks to 
make......they use up
scraps like crazy which suits me just fine!  


My reasoning for starting this quilt was 
my scrap bucket with 
all my different colors all bagged 
separately...I want to use
large jewel tone scraps for the backgrounds...gold, 
blues, greens, purples, wines....

I like how this is looking for far....another 
quilt I just might 
have to keep...uhhhh ohhhh!!

of the aqua backgrounds to even things out...

upsides down...it supposed to look like a
heart...whoops!
