Welcome. So glad you stopped by to visit. I love company. Let me show you what I've been doing lately. I'm a traditional type of quilter and a little artesy every now and then, meaning I love to add on when the need arrises. Don't want to over load my brain by trying to start an idea from scratch. One of my problems is that I see something and I'm so curious I want to know "how did they do that?" Once I know it becomes a project in the corner. I JUST WANT TO KNOW. So take a peak at some of the quilting that really has sparked my interest.

Quilt pattern found in one of the many magazines that I subscribe to was a challenge as far as colors that go with which color.  Love the look that makes it seem as though it was hard to make when it was not difficult at all.

Another one of those demo's done at quilt club meeting using strips and a way of cutting your block.  Just one of the many ways to use a ruler to cut, twist and turn your 6" block to see what you come up with.  This block was quite amazing when finished.  Once again something made into a beautiful project.  This, a table topper and wall hanging.  

New ruler project!  Ruler by LAZY GIRL.  Made into a baby quilt for a little girl because of the girlie print.  Because I don't like doing baby quilts, I passed it on to Teresa Fletcher, one of our quilt guild members to finish for her first granddaughter.  She did a great job on her quilting as a  beginner quilter.  Looked good!

This is the center of the quilt  which is call a medallion.  I made  four 12" Lemoyne star blocks in colors of quilt design.

 Follow along with me as I build our quilt around this design using 12" Jacob Ladder blocks that you ladies are getting prepared.

On the rest of the design are four patch squares.  They will  fill out the design in background colors and tan which matches the colors in the Lemoyne Star.  These pieces are laid out unattached waiting for the rest of the Jacob Ladder blocks to assemble the design.

This is truly a scrappy quilt.  Nothing purchased and it all came together as if I went shopping.  I found the pattern in one of the quilt magazines.  It looked complicated, just took a little extra time.  Surprised at the outcome.

Quilt top is a block of the month design from The Son Flower Quilt shop. (Toledo, OH) My take on the color design is not to use a white background, but instead use gray on beige print fabric by Moda and a marble purple.  There were a lot of various shades of purple prints in the design that a very deep purple just put the icing on the cake.  It has really grown on me as I was not that fond of some of the blocks or color.  When I added my own touch of color and fabric I can live with it.  This one is not leaving the house.
Bought this ruler and looked at it for a couple of months.  Getting my nerve up, I finally decided to get started on something and use this new ruler.  I was so surprised at the outcome that I just kept on going.  This is a Deb Tucker Rapid Fire method using her rapid fire ruler.  Reading her direction was simple enough for me to make and I am still excited.  Turned out pretty nice, huh?
