Scrappy Spring: Sneak Peek #1

Hello Friends,

Another week has quickly gone by for me!  I worked on a new quilt this week… which helped me organize my blue and green stashes in my new fabric storage cupboards.

Here is a sneak peek taken in the evening sun.  This quilt has more than 150 fabrics in it.  Stay tuned for more peeks.

Meanwhile, have a lovely weekend! :)  I will see you again next Monday.

Nestlings in THE QUILTER (April/May 2011)

Break out your scrap stash if you want to make my Nestlings project!


You may remember this is the version 2 of my Spring Song quilt that had appeared at the Houston Quilt Market last year.  I was tasked with tweaking the original Spring Song design for a small wallhanging that can also double as a door banner.  Thus my Nestlings, finishes at 17″ x 21″.


I had used Benartex’s Forever Spring by Nancy Halverson, but this project was designed with scraps in mind!  And… I am in love with these little nestlings!


Quilting was done with YLI Silk 100 over Hobbs Tuscany Wool Batt.  Totally free-motion quilting with unmarked motifs.  There are swirls and feathers and pearly circles all mixed in together.

Pattern instructions are in the upcoming April/May 2011 issue of The Quilter magazine.  Magazine should be hitting newsstands in early March.  Keep your eyes peeled for that issue to come out.  Lots of great projects in there, including two additional quilts of mine.  With so many beautiful spring project patterns out there, it’s going to be a busy spring for some quilters.  I am sure of it! :)


This little wallhanging is going up on the wall as a reminder what’s in store for us in the spring!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a lovely day, you all!
