I pulled fabric but after Bonnie posted the instructions for step 1 to use 2 inch strips I went to my 2" bin and pulled green and pink and didn't even use my larger pieces. I love how the pink & green work together. Then I made too many and came up with this way to use them. I'm liking it.

Several things going today. All I like on the string quilt is hand sewing the binding down. This may wait until cooler weather and a chic flick. The log cabin is a precut noodle that I just had to have. To me there is not enough contrast between the light and dark. I knew this but wanted to get it sewed up and out of there as it does not play well with my stash. Maybe a back for a baby quilt for my next ggrandbaby if it is a girl. The design wall behind the ironing board has the ongoing project. I'm loving it and going slow so as to not mess it up. I have decided to add a narrow dark border then autumn leaves blocks around it. I don't know where I'll go from there.

I've got the Egret done (He is beautiful in person) and purchased fabric to go with it. I've got plenty of the print so I'm ready to start designing it, which is the hardest part for me. But its becoming my favorite part.
Anyone have any ideas? lets have them.
I'm thinking of a small quilt that would fit across the back of my couch.

My work for this past weekend.
A pillow for my friend that admired mine. Done & ready to go.
Two burp cloths for my first GGson due in two weeks. Fun to do.
I decided to add another round of blocks on the log cabin instead of borders. I think I like it. Only 6 more to go.

Today I made a wall hanging. Not just any wall hanging this one is special. It is made from fabric that was left over from DD quilt that is almost ready to quilt. Just needs a border. And it is an entry in a contest at hatchedinafrica.com. Wish me luck. I really don't expect to win. Just funnin.

I finished a quilt two days ago and today gave it to my mom for her 84th Birthday. She loved it. It is brighter than anything I've ever done and I loved it. Machine appliqued butterflys on black kona cotton and batiks. The butterflys are from hatchedinafrica.com they are nice to work with.

This is my design wall today. It has looked the same for a few weeks. All I like is adding some borders which are on the ironing board. Soon it will go on the quilting machine. See more design walls here: http://www.patchworktimes.com/

This quilt was pieced by a lady probably 40 years ago. Her granddaughter brought it to me to finish.
First I did some repairs then added a pretty red border. Next came quilting, label and binding. I think it is beautiful. Some of the fabrics are too cute. Probably from the 20 & 30's.
