I finished quilting a top for a friend. She was kind enough to let me just go wild and quilt the heck out of it! And I did!
She had pieced the top together about 10 years ago and started quilting it then stopped. She had even finished the binding even though it wasn't completely quilted. I took off the binding and picked out all of the quilting she had done. Then I basted and started quilting it. The seams were not very matchy (still way better than my first quilt) so I had to create my own guidelines. Starting in the center I mapped out a square and quilted a checked pattern. I continued working my way out creating boxes and borders as I went. I tried to use a different quilt pattern in each section just for practice. I had lots of fun and it was great practice. I trimmed it and put the binding back on and gave it to her yesterday. She was very pleased.

I am so excited to be apart of this Guild and this Bee, my first Bee Ever! So here it goes I hope it makes sense.
I'am requesting that my block be made of white, coral, navy and aqua. Solids are great but prints are fine too. I would however like each block to be of the same color ie. white and navy not white, aqua and navy. Monochromatic? My inspiration is Art Gallery's fabric Summer Grove by Day print from the Meadow collection by Leah Duncan. I've been eyeing the Rolling Stone block and I found this simple tutorial at Quilty. Click here for the video and here to download the pattern. In the pattern where it says "dark print" please use white in place of a dark print. And your colored fabric will be the light print. If you have a square from me that will be your center. I'm absolutely sure I will love everything you make!
Email me if you have any questions.

Lovin my package I found on the front porch after work. I was really just looking for Camelot Fabrics new line Iconic. My new favorite color combo is navy and coral with aqua, white and yellow. I found it at Fabricworm along with a few other goodies. I bought a little bit of Joel Dewberry's True Colors Wood Grain in yellow, gray and purple. What a wonderful day!
