I am now caught up...this morning I finished blocks 3 & 4 of the Pinwheel Party. I'm having fun with these and they go together so fast. Now that I'm 1/3 of the way finished, I'm asking myself...is there a right and wrong side of this Kona Snow? I can't seem to tell.
Here are blocks A-3 and B-1
Now I wait til Monday when the directions for block 4 will be released!
Ok, I am officially crazy! I am multi-quilting again. This is quilt number 4 that I have in the making, but it looked so good and is very, very easy. I just had to jump into the party. We do a block a week and I am working hard to catch up to block number 4--I only joined 4 weeks late and I did block 1 & 2 this afternoon. I am using '30's reproductions and Kona Snow White as the background.
This is a portion of my stash of '30's reproductions on top of the Kona Snow. I have many more '30's fabrics in my fabric stash. Most, if not all, will find a place in this Pinwheel quilt. Block A-1 and A-2
Stay tuned for blocks A-3 and B-1 coming right up!!
This is the February block for the Civil War Tribute quilt. There are four of these blocks in the quilt--all the same. At least they will be. Notice one of them is a little larger because of the spacers added to the top and bottom of the block. I didn't like putting this together very much. Every join had 2-3 triangle seams coming together--blech!! No fun, much bulk. After the second block, I quit obsessing over points and seams and direction of fabric and just hoped for the best so don't look too closely at it. It looks great on a galloping horse!! Now for the March block!!
Hi, my long-arm quilty friend Shannon has a giveaway over on her blog to celebrate her 300th post and her one year anniversary of her blog. Head on over to www.piecefulkwilter.blogspot.com and see the cutest ever little clutch she has made as a giveaway.
My name is Karen. I started sewing as a young girl, taught by my mother. I've quilted for about 26 years--machine piecing and hand quilting. In recent years I've been machine quilting. I love using a long-arm machine. I also enjoy machine embroidery and like to join that with my love of quilting. My passion is heirloom sewing. I love the delicate fabrics with pintucks,laces, and entredeux. I've taken numerous Martha Pullen heirloom sewing classes and attended her School of Art Fashion in Feb 2009.
I sew on a Bernina Artista 730. I also own a Bernina Artista 165 and my first Bernina, a 930, purchased 23 years ago. It is a workhorse!
The name of my blog comes from a song titled The Pieces Fit by Pearl Barrett, Jeanette Herdman, and Charlie Barret of Considering Lily. "His grace for my shame, His death for my blame, His stripes for my pain and the pieces fit. His joy for my grief, His hurt my relief, my doubt His belief and the pieces fit." There's no other way I can be whole but through Jesus.
I sew for others, so if you see something you'd like, e-mail me. My work is individualized so you can get close to what you want. Thanks for stopping and visiting.
